New Genshin Impact Tighnari English Voice Actor Revealed

Back in February 2023, HoYoVerse confirmed it would replace the Genshin Impact Tighnari voice actor following former performer Elliot Gindi’s sexual misconduct. On April 11, 2023, the company revealed the new voice actor. Tighnari will now be voiced by Zachary Gordon going forward. Players will get to hear him as the character starting in 3.6.

While the update isn’t live yet, people can already hear samples of Zachary Gordon in Genshin Impact as the new Tighnari voice actor. HoYoVerse updated the official site for the game. The Tighnari page includes clips of is new English voice actor. Pressing the microphone next to his name causes a random one to play. It also shows Sanae Kobayashi remains his Japanese voice actor.

Why is Tighnari Getting a New Voice Actor in Genshin Impact?

As a reminder, following Elliot Gindi’s behavior and admitting his actions, HoYoVerse committed to replacing the performer. Among his infractions included preying upon fans. The developer noted a new actor would be hired for not only future content, but to replace past recorded lines. It also stated that things would not be changed all at once, as it could take multiple updates for all Tighnari past lines to be replaced.

Zachary Gordon is best known as Greg Heffley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid. He also played Ravus in Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV and Hayner in Kingdom Hearts 3.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices. The 3.6 update arrives on April 12, 2023. Tighnari is always a part of the general character gacha pool as a five-star Dendro unit.
