Genshin Impact is a free-to-play action RPG with gacha mechanics centered around the games' playable characters. These new characters are often announced in small groups as only a few, especially 5-Stars, may be released through Limited-time Wish Banners.
Regardless, Genshin Impact leakers have been known to provide reliable information on new characters, including those who have yet to be mentioned in official content or promotional material. So, here's all that has been leaked so far on upcoming characters that haven't yet been found in any in-game content or promotional material. As usual, nothing will be confirmed until they're officially released.
Leaked Upcoming Genshin Impact Characters
Candace/Kandake Candace is said to be a 4-Star Hydro unit and a Polearm user. Shell is believed to be released by Genshin Impact update 3.1, according to other leaks. She has a shield and three charge levels.
Djajeet Not a lot is known about Djajeet, although he is thought to be a Sumeru male character. His rating and overall kit have yet to be revealed, but some reports indicate him being a Cryo Claymore user in Genshin Impact (though this might also apply to Mika).
Faruzan Faruzan is said to be a 4-Star female character in Genshin Impact. According to leaks, she is an Anemo Bow user. The most recent banner overview also scheduled her for release at around Genshin Impact update 3.2 or 3.3.
Kavi/Kaveh Kavi is a male Sumeru-based character, and most of his leaks pertain to his role in the Legend. According to leaker BLANK, Kavi is a well-known architect who built a place called the Palace of Alcazarzaray. He is also a roommate with Alhaitham, one of the confirmed new characters of Genshin Impact.
Layla Layla is a 4-Star Sword user. Like Ayaka from Genshin Impact, she wields Cryo. In the past, she was confused for Candace, but this has since been corrected.
Mika Mika is a fictional character that is rumored to be based in Mondstadt. In terms of color scheme, leakers claim that hell will be a Cryo character during Genshin Impact 3.3.1, but that he will not be playable until the Grand Master Varkas expedition.
A number of leaked characters have little to no information other than their name.
- Ikhfa (female)
- Nafs (female)
- Soutine (female)
All of this information is subject to change depending on HoYoverses official announcements. Yet even then, it's exciting to know that there's a large assortment of new playable characters. Hopefully, more will be revealed once Genshin Impact 3.0 is released. Until then, players will most likely be keeping an eye on trustworthy leakers in the community.
Genshin Impact is now available on mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is in the works, with no confirmed release date.
