Dimapur, June 30 (EMN): Thanks to a recent leak, Genshin Impact fans can now know the release dates of Yoimiya, Sayu and Ayaka. In other words, these three characters are the only known characters with release dates so far. They will probably be released one after the other, so F2P players will have to decide which banner they are most willing to invest in.

The tweet below shows the release date of the Ayaka flag and the Yoimiya and Sayu flags. Obviously, the Ayaka flag will arrive at Genshin Impact on July 21, 2021, and the last two will arrive on August 10, 2021.

It is worth noting that Yoimiya and Sayu will probably be on the same banner because the former is a five-star hero and the latter is a four-star hero. Nevertheless, it is not uncommon for Genshin to release two new characters in the same banner.

All the above content comes from the credible and popular Genshin Impact leaker named Lumie and also leaks from the beta data. Since it comes from the Beta version of Genshin Impact, it is always subject to change. However, most of the Genshin Impact leaks related to the release date are usually clear.


A few years ago, Ayaka was leaked in the beta version of Genshin Impact. She is a five-star user of Cryo Sword.

Although Ayaka is an old character, her skills have recently been improved to make her more viable. Her DPS can be impressive and is much higher than other characters like Xiao. She can be a useful DPS character to test out in your raid party.


Yoimiya is another leaked character with impressive damage capability. She has a unique Charged Attack that can fire up to three Kindling Arrows, which can track its enemies. Her Elemental Skill gives an attack buff to her normal attacks to make it even stronger.

On the same note, her Elemental Burst is a short series of fireworks that leave marks on enemies known as Aurous Blaze. This mark lasts 10 seconds, and if a party member other than Yoimiya hits an enemy, it triggers mini-explosions. These mini-explosions can only occur every two seconds, but the mark can be transferred to another enemy (along with its duration) if the enemy is defeated.


Sayu is a four-star Anemo character that wields a Claymore. Her Elemental Skill allows her to curl up into a rolling Fufu Windwheel and smash into opponents at high speed, dealing Anemo damage for 10 seconds.

Her Elemental Burst can heal allies with less than 70% health or cause damage to Anemo enemies if an active party member has more than 70% health.
