Mihoyo, the developers of Genshin Impact recently revealed two upcoming characters Shenhe and Yunjin.
Genshin Impact data miners have previously hinted at upcoming characters Shenhe and Yunjin for many months now. Shenhe was first hinted at by leakers, even before the release of Eula. Many claimed that she was scrapped for Eula. But later, we got to know that Shenhe is indeed coming to the game from some leaks and Genshin character’s voice lines about her. We also saw a lot of images, character models, and fanarts about her floating around the internet.
Yun Jin, on the other hand, was confirmed to be coming to the game after an official trailer showed her off briefly. But during the trailer, we only got to see a little glimpse of her but did not know much about her.
But in a recent surprise announcement, Mihoyo, the developers of Genshin Impact revealed Shenhe and Yun Jin for all of us.
Possible Release Date:
Previously, many Genshin Impact Chinese leakers said that, Shenhe and Yun Jin are probably coming out in Genshin Impact v2.4. Seems like that’s going to be the case. Mihoyo has a habit of revealing characters only if they are coming out soon.
Since Mihoyo revealed Shenhe and Yun Jin just before the Genshin Impact v2.3 update, we can safely assume that they are coming out in v2.4.
The Genshin Impact official Twitter account revealed Shenhe and some information about her. The 1st Tweet about Shenhe reads,
“‘One has traversed many realms and taken a great many pupils. Among them, Shenhe bears the closest resemblance to oneself. ‘ — Cloud Retainer
◆ Shenhe ‧ Lonesome Transcendence
◆ Ethereal Soul Amidst the Mortal Realm
◆ Crista Doloris”
Here, from the Tweet, we learn a few things about Shenhe. Shenhe is not the human form of Cloud Retainer, but her pupil and a human. She is a Cryo Polearm user and her Constellation name is ‘Crista Doloris’. According to all the leaks so far, Shenhe will probably be a 5* character.
And from the 2nd Tweet, we get more details about Shenhe and her relationship with Cloud Retainer. Shenhe is from a branch family of a clan of exorcists. She was taken in as a disciple by Cloud Retainer.
Yun Jin Reveal:
During the same time of Shenhe’s reveal, another character Yun Jin was also revealed. The Tweet about Yun Jin reads,
“‘One performance by Yun Jin at our tea house rakes in enough Mora that we won’t have to open for a whole month!’ — Fan Er’ye of Heyu Tea House
◆ Yun Jin ‧ Stage Lucida
◆ Current Director of Yun-Han Opera Troupe
◆ Opera Grandis”
Yun Jin is the director of the Liyue Yun-Han Opera house. She will be a Geo Polearm user and probably a 4* character. Yun Jin’s constellation name is ‘Opera Grandis’.
