miHoYo released a character trailer and more concrete information on the upcoming Kamisato Ayato character for Genshin Impact. The Ayato trailer is almost two minutes long and is available on the Genshin Impact YouTube channel. Akira Ishida (Naruto, Gundam SEED) voices him in Japanese. Meanwhile, Chris Hackney (Hunter x Hunter, Bungo Stray Dogs) voices him in English.
Ayato’s trailer has him contemplating his personas, both public and private. While he is a member of the Yashiro Commission to Inazuma and an older brother to Ayaka, he claims he is just an ordinary person. He notes that he wants to change the world to one where everyone can return home, alluding to his work keeping him away from it.

When Ayato uses his Elemental Skill, Kamisato Art: Kyouka, he enters the Takimeguri Kanka state. He will deal AoE Hydro damage in place of his Normal Attacks, as well as place a water illusion where he originally was. His Burst will rain down Bloomwater Blades within an AoE, which will also deal Hydro damage. When characters are within the field, their Normal Attack damage increases.
Genshin Impact is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Android and iOS devices. It is in development for Nintendo Switch. Ayato will be one of the 5-star banner characters in Genshin Impact Version 2.6, which will go live on March 30, 2022.
