Genshin Impact continues to be in the midst of its Version 2.7 update, bringing in new characters like Kuki Shinobu and model new occasions. But we’re nonetheless getting leaks effectively into the way forward for Version 3.0 and past, and the most recent leak reveals a brand new character coming to the game. This character carefully resembles a personality named ‘Su’ present in HoYoverse’s sister game, Honkai Impact third.
Hints of this character had been initially revealed on June 21, when distinguished Genshin Impact leaker Ubatcha posted a partial picture of Su’s early character artwork. Ubatcha acknowledged that the character’s title is not going to be Su in Genshin Impact, regardless of sharing the same design. Additionally, this character will more than likely not be playable in Version 3.0. (He should be launched, nonetheless.)
Later, Ubatcha revealed the complete picture was leaked on-line, posting a whole picture of the brand new “Su-like” character. The blurry picture is tough to see in nice element, however gamers will be capable of select many of the distinguished particulars on this picture. His chest exhibits a glowing green Vision, seemingly a Dendro imaginative and prescient.
Genshin Impact information miners @SaveYourPrimos later confirmed that the picture depicting the “Su Expy” is actual. The picture was not reshared “due to circumstances surrounding the leak.” Unfortunately, this does seemingly imply this Su character is not going to be playable in Version 3.0.
This isn’t the primary time Genshin Impact has taken inspiration from Honkai Impact third for its character designs. Yae Miko was impressed by Yae Sakura, and Raiden Shogun carefully resembles Raiden Mei from Genshin Impact. The naming conventions do point out that Su’s title gained’t be too far off from his Honkai Impact counterpart, though we’ll have to attend for official affirmation.
Note: Take any leak with a grain of salt, particularly one as early as this. As Genshin Impact Version 3.0 continues to be a methods off, it’s necessary to set your expectations fairly.
