Every universe must have a Detective Conan — a boy genius detective who solves crimes within the blink of an eye fixed. Genshin Impact’s personal Conan comes within the type of Shikanoin Heizhou, who’s the latest playable character coming to the game in Version 2.8. While we haven’t gotten Version 2.7 but attributable to some unprecedented delays, that hasn’t stopped the Genshin Impact devs from bringing us some old style drip advertising for the game’s resident prodigy.

An official submit on the Genshin Impact Twitter account exhibits off Shikanoin Heizhou’s design in addition to his component. The character is a 4-star Anemo character, and can supposedly wield a catalyst based on dependable leaker Lumie. We know he’s nicely famend for his detective craft, so we’ll see how that interprets into his talents in-game.

Character Kamisato Ayato had this to say about him: “Doushin Shikanoin has admirable wit and insight. While he is unfettered and unrestrained in demeanor, one should not dismiss his talents. The Tenryou Commission is incredibly fortunate to have such a man in their ranks.”

There isn’t any official affirmation over what his position will probably be within the game, however as Anemo characters are inclined to play as Support characters — particularly characters who use a Catalyst general — Shikanoin Heizhou’s position will most definitely be as a Support or Sub-DPS character. There is a leak from Ubatcha over his talents, stating he can “fly into the air” like Kazuha and set free a punch, however that hasn’t been formally confirmed and ought to be taken with a grain of salt.

Shikanoin Heizhou is the one character revealed in Genshin Impact Version 2.8’s advertising to date, so it’s unlikely that we’ll see any new characters popping out in that model. Version 2.7 of the game has but to launch, and that may carry the brand new characters Yelan and Kuki Shinobu.
