MiHoYo has announced the Genshin Impact update 2.4 banners and the release date for Shenhe and Yun Jin will arrive in early 2022.

MiHoYo’s free-to-play title is currently ready to start version 2.3. This will see reruns for Eula and Albedo, as well as the arrival of new playable characters in Arataki Itto and Gorou.

Arataki Itto is the 5-stars arrival with Gorou as his lesser, and miHoYo are following a similar approach with the new year arrivals.

When is the Shenhe and Yun Jin release date for Genshin Impact?

The release date for when Shenhe and Yun Jin will come out in Genshin Impact is January 5th or January 25th.

Update 2.4 will begin on January 5th provided there’s no delays, and the first character event will last three weeks per usual. So it depends on whether either character is part of the first banner or if they’re involved in the second.

Genshin Impact Shenhe weapons and element

Shenhe has been officially announced for Genshin Impact update 2.4 and her element is Cryo.

Her weapon is also a Polearm. As for her backstory, miHoYo says that she comes from a clam family of exorcists. Her master is Cloud Retainer who she considers knowledgeable but awfully chatty.

We’ve been treated to dozens of amazing Cryo characters in the game from Eula to Ganyu, but Shenhe is arguably the best yet from a superficial view. She has silver hair in a long braid and her attire looks decent from a glance.

Yun Jin weapons and element

Yun Jin has also been announced by miHoYo on Twitter and her element is Geo.

She’s also another Polearm user. Unlike the other 2.4 debutant, Yun Jin is more theatrical as she is a director at the Yun-Han Opera and is very a famous figure in the opera landscape.

Leaks say that she is a 4-stars character, so it’s possible that she could be part of the Shenhe banner similar to Gorou with Arataki.
