Kuki Shinobu is the new 4-star Electro character in Genshin Impact. The developers released an introduction about her skills and background story a few hours ago.

Shinobu's primary responsibilities as the deputy leader of the Arataki Gang are to bring in business and maintain a stable team. Sometimes, she also bails out the gang from the police station, returning snacks to the villager's kids and catching anyone slacking off from a job.

Aside from that, her role as a playable unit in the game is a support character who uses her Electro Vision to heal teammates and deal continuous damage off-stage. This article will explore Shinobu's release date, hangout event, materials, and voice actors.

The second phase of version 2.7 will be Kuki Shinobu's first appearance in Genshin Impact as a playable character. She is a gacha character that can only be obtained by pulling in Arataki Itto's rerun banner on June 21, 2022.

As a 4-star character, players have a high chance of getting Kuki Shinobu in the character banner. However, if players have run out of Primogems during the remaining duration of the Itto banner, they can rest assured as she will be added to the standard banner 'Wanderlust Invocation' in version 2.8.
