Three new characters are coming to the Genshin Impact banners in version 2.1, and Leaks have announced exactly when they will be available.
According to leaks, Raiden Shogun, Kujou Sara and Kokomi will all become playable characters in version 2.1. Genshin Impact players have already seen these characters in Inazuma’s storyline.
Now all players have to do is wait until September 2021 to begin summoning these Inazuma natives.
Character banner release dates for Genshin Impact 2.1
There will likely be two character banners in Genshin Impact 2.1, and players should each have three weeks to summon them from them.
The first banner will show Baal, the Raiden Shogun, as his exclusive 5-star character. This banner also features the 4-star character Kujou Sara with increased drop rates.
When Baal’s banner ends, Kokomi will step into the spotlight as the next 5-star star.
Date of publication of the banner by Raiden Shogun & Kujou Sara
Raiden Shogun and Kujou Sara will be featured in Genshin Impact on September 1st. This banner should start together with version 2.1.
Baal and Sara are both confirmed electro characters in Genshin Impact. Baal will likely be a polearm user, while Sara will be the second electro bow user after Fischl.
Based on previous banners, it can be assumed that in addition to Kujou Sara, two other 4-star characters will appear on this banner. These characters are unknown for now, but players can learn more during the 2.1 livestream expected on August 20th.
Release date of the Kokomi banner
Sangonomiya Kokomi is published in the second banner of version 2.1 of Genshin Impact. Leaks predict their release date will be September 21, 2021.
While it’s pretty amazing, Kokomi will likely be the third Hydro-Catalyst user in Genshin Impact. Once released, there will be a total of five Hydro characters in the game, meaning over half of them will be using the same weapons.
Leaks have yet to predict the featured 4-star characters under Kokomi’s banner. Rumors made the rounds that Thoma could be a new character in 2.1. Gorou would make sense too, since he’s a member of Kokomi’s resistance.
However, there is currently no solid evidence that any of these upcoming characters will appear in the 2.1 banners.
New 5-star weapons in Genshin Impact 2.1
Fumetsu Gekka and Grasscutter’s Light are two 5-star weapons that are expected for version 2.1. According to recent leaks, these weapons have been renamed Everlasting Moonglow and Engulfing Lightning, respectively.
In order to obtain these weapons, players will likely have to fulfill their wishes on the upcoming weapon banners. The exact release dates for these weapons are unconfirmed. However, based on past banner trends, players can probably assume when these banners will take place.
Since Raiden Shogun is supposed to be a polearms user, it is likely that the Engulfing Lightning banner will be running at the same time. Since Kokomi uses a catalytic converter, the Everlasting Moonglow will likely debut at the same time on September 21st.
