Genshin Impact: Five exciting upcoming banners
Genshin Impact has a big year ahead, and gamers can look forward to several new characters and a massive new area to explore. Of course, with these additions also come the latest banners, and fans have lots coming over the year.
Some prominent characters may finally be released in 2022, and individuals won't want to miss out.
5) Arataki Itto
Of course, the first rerun set to arrive after the current Yelan and Xiao banner is Arataki Itto. His rerun will bring the return of the Oni King alongside Kuki Shinobu, and fans who missed out on Itto the first time will want to pick him up when he returns.
Mono Geo currently seems to dominate the Abyss, and Itto is a stellar Claymore user for any team.
4) Shikanoin Heizou
Shikanoin Heizou will appear on a banner during the 2.8 update, and while he is a 4-star character, many fans plan to summon specifically for him.
He is one of the game's most unique characters, utilizing his Catalyst to amplify his martial arts prowess. It's unknown which banner he will be on, but he will likely accompany Kaedehara Kazuha during the new update.
According to leaks about the Golden Apple Archipelago rerun, players may be able to look forward to one or both of these powerful Pyro 5-stars making a return. Klee and Yoimiya are strong Pyro damage characters, and both seem to be playing a significant role during the return to the islands.
If fans want both of these explosive characters, they'll need a ton of Primogems saved up.
2) Kaedehara Kazuha
Kaedehara Kazuha's rerun has been a long time coming, and many Genshin Impact fans have been waiting for almost an entire year. His original banner dropped during the initial run of the Golden Apple Archipelago, and many overlooked Kazuha as he wasn't as highly valued during his initial banner.
Now, though, Kazuha has become one of the most sought-after characters, and his banner is sure to sell quite well.
1) Dendro characters released
2022 looks to be the year that Genshin Impact finally releases Dendro characters to the user base. It's uncertain which character will be playable first, though Nahida seems the most likely candidate.
The first Dendro banner will likely arrive during the 3.0 update, where the Traveler is set to journey to Sumeru, the land of Dendro. Gamers who have long awaited this addition to the title will want to hold onto their Primogems for just a bit longer.
