HoYoVerse has released some information on the upcoming new 4-star character, Heizou, in Genshin Impact. He will be part of the first Version 2.8 banner, alongside returning 5-star Kazuha. Heizou will be the game’s first male Catalyst user, and he will be of the Anemo element.

Though he is a Catalyst user, Heizou’s combat animations utilize a lot of martial arts moves. In his character video, he discusses what his beliefs are as a detective, as well as how useless resorting to violence is against him. His Elemental Skill, Heartstopper Strike, can charge up to four stacks for increased damage. Meanwhile, his Elemental Burst, Windmuster Kick, deals AoE Anemo damage.

Heizou is a detective for the Tenryou Commission, and various existing Inazuma characters mention him in their voice lines. In Japanese, Yuichi Iguchi will voice him, and in English, Kieran Regan will. Previous roles from Iguchi include Genshiro Saji from High School DxD and Hotarumaru from Touken Ranbu. As for Regan, he previously appeared as Rio in Seirei Gensouki: Spirit Chronicles and Cub in Akedo: Ultimate Arcade Warriors.

Aside from Heizou’s debut, Version 2.8 will also have the new Summertime Odyssey event. Finishing the event will give players a free Fischl. Fischl will be one of the characters getting a new outfit, with Diluc getting one as well.

Genshin Impact is available on PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. A Nintendo Switch version is still in development. Genshin Impact Version 2.8 will go live on July 13, 2022, with Heizou on Kazuha’s banner.
