Some new Irodori Festival leaks have popped up, giving players a closer look at what will be Genshin Impact 2.6's biggest event. These latest Genshin Leaks primarily cover some storyline cutscenes yet lack any text (so there won't be any specific spoilers here). Aside from that, some old Genshin Impact 2.6 leaks help reveal more information for what players can expect from this event.

The Irodori Festival will feature over a dozen playable characters in Genshin Impact 2.6. Not everything has been leaked yet, but some new leaks are worth discussing.

Hues of the Violet Court: Irodori Festival with story quests and 4 minigames:- Take critter/plant photos for two NPCs to inspire their poetry- Tower defense with limited tower varieties & quotas, plus Wondrous Sticks- Swordfight minigame that requires parry- 4 ikebana chores

Hues of the Violet Court: Irodori Festival appears to be the full name of this event. Not only that but there are four minigames:

  • Taking photos of critters and plants to inspire two NPCs' poetry
  • Tower Defence
  • Swordfighting
  • Ikebana chores (flower arrangement)
These minigames reward a total of 680 primogems (not including story quest rewards).You need to complete the last stages of all 4 minigames (including defeating "The Mightiest Warrior", who can block all attacks other than your parry) before you can redeem a Xingqiu for free.

All four minigames will apparently give players 680 Primogems, and the player has to do all four of them to the final stages to get Xingqiu in Genshin Impact 2.6. "The Mightiest Warrior" comes from the Swordfighting minigame, so players will have to learn how to parry if they wish to get a free copy of Xingqiu.

This YouTube video showcases that the Irodori Festival will take place in Ritou in Genshin Impact 2.6. It doesn't feature any of the four minigames, for it solely demonstrates the player walking through the area as the festival is ongoing.

On a related note, there are also several leaked screenshots to share.

These screenshots help confirm that several characters will show up at the Irodori Festival event. For example, the following characters can be seen in this image:

  • Albedo
  • Ayaka
  • Kazuha
  • Venti
  • Paimon
  • Aether
  • Xingqiu

It makes sense that Xingqiu is a few times in these screenshots, given that he will be the free 4-star character in Genshin Impact 2.6's Irodori Festival.

This screenshot is similar to the first one, except it also features Kujou Sara and Ayato. Like with the other images, there is no context for what's happening here. It's worth noting that it's not supposed to be Ayato here, but rather the Traveler. But the Ayato's model is here instead for some reason.

One of the most interesting parts of this event is the multitude of characters interacting with one another. In this case, this leak is once again using Ayato's model instead of the Traveler's (which should be obvious based on Paimon's proximity and the lack of the Traveler's model here).

This screenshot is similar to the previous two in that the Traveler's model is replaced by Ayato's. However, the real Ayato does appear in this Genshin Impact 2.6 cutscene (he's the one on the right).
