Genshin Impact Ayaka and Yoimiya Character Art Revealed


The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has shared a first look at Ayaka and Yoimiya. These two characters have yet to be added to the roster of Genshin Impact. Additionally, while players generally knew of their existence through leaks and short teasers from miHoYo, official artwork has been released of both characters.

Alongside the reveal of their art, more information about Ayaka and Yoimiya has been revealed. This includes their retrospective elements and occupations. Yoimiya is a Pyro Archer who owns Naganohara Fireworks. Ayaka describes her as Inazuma’s best pyrotechnician. Ayaka on the other hand is a Cryo character and the daughter of the Yashiro Commission’s Kamisato Clan.

However, these two weren’t the only characters to be revealed. Another new character that will join Genshin Impact‘s roster alongside Yoimiya and Ayaka is Sayu. This Anemo character is a ninja who loves to hide in trees. Her attire resembles that of a tanuki. You can take a look at all three official artworks of these characters below.

While a solid release date for these characters has yet to be revealed, miHoYo did reveal when players can expect version 1.6 to arrive. Additionally, when version 1.6 goes live players will have the opportunity to test their luck and roll for Kazuha. Like Yoimiya, Ayaka, and Sayu, he is an entirely new character to the roster of Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact version 1.6 will arrive on June 9, 2021. Genshin Impact is available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. A Nintendo Switch version is in development.
