Genshin Impact is a free-to-play action RPG with gacha mechanics centered around the game’s playable characters. Upcoming characters are often featured in promotional materials as well as in-game quests to entice players to shoot for them. That said, these new characters are often announced in small batches as only a few, especially 5-stars, can be released via limited-time wish banners.
However, that doesn’t stop the community from finding out who the upcoming characters are in other ways. Genshin Impact leakers have been known to release reliable information about new characters, including those who have yet to appear in official content. So here’s everything that’s been leaked so far about the upcoming characters that have not appeared in no game content or promotional material yet. As usual, none of this information is confirmed, and things could change once it is finally announced.
Upcoming Genshin Impact Characters Leaked
Candace/Kandake – Candace is assumed to be a 4-star Hydro unit and a Polearm user. The fugitives think she will be freed by Genshin Impact update 3.1. Other leaks reveal that his elemental skill creates a shield and has three charge levels.
djajeet – Not much is known about Djajeet, but it is believed to be a male character from Sumeru. His rating and overall kit have yet to be revealed, but some leaks point to him being a Cryo Claymore user in Genshin Impact (although this could also apply to Mika).
Farouzan – Faruzan is rumored to be a 4-star female character in Genshin Impact. According to the leaks, she is an Anemo Bow user. The most recent banner preview also anticipates its release to Genshin Impact update 3.2 or 3.3.
Kavi/Kaveh – Kavi is a male character based on Sumeru, and most of his leaks are about his role in the lore. According to leaker BLANK, Kavi is a famous architect who built a place known as “Alcazarzaray Palace”. He is also roommates with Alhaitham, one of the confirmed new characters of Genshin Impact. Leaker HxG_diluc also adds that Kavi was the upper class of Alhaitham when they were both still students.
Layla – Layla is supposed to be a 4 Star Sword user. Like Ayaka from Genshin Impact, she uses Cryo. In the past, she was confused with Candace, but this has since been corrected as the two are separate characters.
Mike – Mika is a bit different from the other characters on this list, as he’s supposed to be a Mondstadt-based character. Its design is said to be similar to Eula’s in terms of color palette. And while not much is known about his kit, leaks predict he’ll be a Cryo character. It is also said that he will appear as an NPC during Genshin Impact version 3.1 but will not yet be playable. According to lore-related leaks, Mika is on his way back to Mondstadt after Grand Master Varka’s expedition. He was also described as a “shy cartographer”.
There are also a number of leaked characters that have little to no information about them other than their name. These characters are:
- Ikhfa (female)
- Nafs (female)
- Bra (female)
Of course, all of this information is subject to change based on official HoYovers announcements. But even then, it’s exciting to know that there’s a huge lineup of new playable characters. Hopefully more information will be revealed about them once Genshin Impact update 3.0 drops. Until then, gamers will most likely keep an eye out for reliable leaks from the community.
Genshin Impact is available now on mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5. A Switch version is in development with no confirmed release date.
