The next Genshin Impact update is delayed indefinitely due to the COVID lockdown situation in China, an unusual break for the game that has been producing non-stop updates every six weeks since launch.
But they continue to promote what’s to come, including the to reveal of a new character today, Shikanoin Heizou, a new hero Anemo.
If you ask me, he’s more 4-star looking than 4-star ever, but who knows, he might be fun. Here’s what we know about him:
Shikanoin Heizou ‧ Analytical Harmony
Tenryou Commission Detective
A young detective from the Tenryou Commission. Free-spirited and undisciplined, but cheerful and lively.
“Dushin Shikanoin has admirable intelligence and insight. Although he is unrestrained and unrestrained in behavior, his talents should not be overlooked. The Tenryou Commission is incredibly fortunate to have such a man in its ranks.” – Kamisato Ayato
At first glance, Heizou looks like an ordinary young man, but in fact he is the undisputed number one detective of the Tenryou Commission.
Not only does he possess a wild imagination, he also possesses a mind for meticulous logic and reasoning, as well as an extraordinary sense of intuition when it comes to solving cases.
Whenever a crime occurs, his colleagues rely on experience to help them deal with the case, but Heizou brings an innovative perspective and gets right to the heart of the case.
People are impressed by your sharp intuition, thinking your reasoning ability and efficiency are divine. Here, Heizou simply replied with his characteristic smile, “I don’t know, maybe that’s something even the gods can’t do!”
He is an Anemo sword user, and I believe again, he will be a new 4 star. It has not been stated whether he will appear in Update 2.7 alongside the two new characters already announced, Yelan and Kuki Shinobu, as he could be a 2.8 character. I wouldn’t normally expect three new characters in a patch very often, as it’s usually 1-2, but this is a unique circumstance because of the delay, so anything is possible.
Heizou will be joining Kazuha as another Anemo sword user, another reason I think he is 4 stars because Kazuha is already 5 stars in that category. We still don’t know details about its moveset or kit, and since 2.7/2.8 doesn’t have a release date, we don’t know when it will come either. Stay tuned for more information to come.
