Fans of Genshin Impact begging miHoYo for cosmetic skins finally have their wish with the upcoming Genshin Impact 1.6 update, Midsummer Island Adventure, along with a host of other features.
Arriving on 9 June, the 1.6 update sees new skins for the Gunnhildr sisters Jean and Barbara, opening up a whole new way for tie-ups and cosmetics in the game (hands up if you want Diluc-sama in a butler outfit).
While Barbara's outfit, "Summertime Sparkle", will be free to claim by completing certain requirements in the Echoing Tales event, Jean's outfit, "Sea Breeze Dandelion", will be available for purchase in the in-game shop at a limited-time discount, presumably with Genesis Crystals which need to be bought with cash.
With Klee being prominently displayed throughout the 1.6 showcase, it'll come as no surprise then that she will be on the limited character banner this time around.
There's also the first playable Inazuma character, Kaedehara Kazuha, a 5* Anemo sword user who looks like he'll gel well with Swirl reaction comps, so it might be time to get your Viridescent Verener pieces prepped!
Also, Kazuha will be featured in the upcoming Archon quest., which means...
Yes, after months of waiting, Genshin players may finally have a whiff of Inazuma. Kazuha is said to be travelling with Beidou and her fleet, and with more concept art about Genshin Impact's third city teased in the 1.6 reveal livestream on Friday (28 May), it can't be long now before we finally have a new region to explore.
However, before that, players will still have to help everyone's favourite Spark Knight Klee defend her Dodoco from the "Dodo-King" threat. From the gameplay footage revealed, that will involve using a boat called a "Waverider" (have the Legends of Tomorrow called about a crossover yet) searching for a place called "Dodoland".
The event's zone will be a new archipelago area to explore, but it's yet unknown if this is part of Inazuma or just on the way to it.
Additionally, the event will also involve a fight with the Maguu Kenki, an opponent that can summon phantoms and deal both Anemo and Cryo damage.
According to miHoYo, the Maguu Kekni "can only be taken down while in close-range combat", after which presumably Eula and Hutao burst out laughing and said "bring it".
There will also be improvements to the Serenitea Pot introduced in 1.5, finally letting you populate the place with characters you own.
Conveniently, these characters will accumulate Character Companionship Experience, which means you'll be on your way to collecting more name cards in no time!
Overall, there's lots to look forward to in Version 1.6, and with any luck, Inazuma may be one of them!
