The Inazuma region is finally becoming a holiday resort to explore in Genshin Impact, and its arrival coincides with the release date for update 2.0 and the Ayaka banner with its 4 stars characters.

Although the newest version of the game is poised to be the biggest yet, its future is even bigger thanks to the confirmation of nine new Inazuma warriors. Not only that, but expansion 2.1 will also celebrate the game’s first year anniversary.

Version 2.1 could see the launch of Kokomi if leaks are to be believed, but – before the game’s one-year birthday – we will finally be able to play as the new region’s princess.
