The Genshin Impact event scheduled for this week is launching very soon, with the Sayu and Yoimiya Banner release date the latest part of the ambitious 2.0 expansion.
Yoimiya will be headlining the Tapestry of Golden Flames Banner, with the five-star Pyro, who wields a Bow.
Owners of Naganohara Fireworks, Yoimiya is the most skilled pyrotechnician in Inazuma and is known as the Queen of the Summer Festival.
“Yoimiya is the other five-star character joining in Version 2.0. She’s a Pyro archer and an expert in fireworks. Known as the Queen of the Summer Festival, Yoimiya excels in her craft of creating fireworks that symbolize people’s hopes and dreams. The last character, Sayu, is a four-star ninja character who wields an Anemo Vision. Despite her petite stature, she can wield a giant claymore bigger than herself.”
And while Yoimiya will be the headliner, this week’s Genshin update won’t be the only character getting a boosted drop.
Like with most Banners, there will be a bundle of four-star fighters available alongside the main event.
The character list will include the following during this week’s August event:
“Mujina Ninja””·Sayu (Anemo), “Kätzlein Cocktail”·Diona (Cryo), and “Blazing Riff”·Xinyan (Pyro).
Sayu is expected to be another big draw during the coming weeks, who has been raised in the Shuumatsuban since she was a child, and is extremely loyal to the organization.
