• Ayaka is one of the most anticipated playable characters in "Genshin Impact"

Chinese gaming studio miHoYo has a lot of things prepared for "Genshin Impact" players, including the launch of new playable characters. Since December last year, fans have been talking about Ayaka, but miHoYo has not yet hinted on her arrival in the hit gacha game. Interestingly, a lot of leaks reveal exciting details about the character, including her potential release date and other banner details.

Ayaka Banner Release Date And Other Details

Ayaka first appeared in the closed beta of "Genshin Impact." So far, most of these characters in the game's build are eventually launched playable through updates. Many insiders tie Ayaka's arrival in the game with the launch of the Inazuma region. Based on this speculation, Ayaka could arrive in update 1.6, which could launch sometime in June.

This rumor is founded on the fact that the Princess of the Kamisato House is an important figure of the Electro Area in Inazuma. After appearing in the closed beta, fans learned that Ayaka is a five-star Cryo user that wields swords in battles. Other characters anticipated to launch alongside her are characters based on the Inazuma region.

This could include the Hydro Catalyst Mimi, the Anemo Claymore user Sayu and the Anemo sword user Kazuha. Of course, this is not official information about Ayaka, and until now, miHoYo is still tight-lipped about her arrival in "Genshin Impact."
