KEY POINTS

  • A massive "Genshin Impact" character leak surfaced in November
  • It reveals potential playable characters launching in the game
  • One of these leaked characters is Tohama, rumored Ayaka's boyfriend

Last year, miHoYo assured fans that it would roll out new updates to "Genshin Impact" every six weeks. So far, the game developer stays true to its promise, and with the scheduled content launching on time, many fans believe one of them could be Tohama. While miHoYo has not yet revealed anything about the characters, leaks about him are rife online.

Who Is Tohama,  Ayaka's Lore In "Genshin Impact"?

Tohama caught fans' attention when he was included in a massive character leak last November alongside Rosaria and Hu Tao. Rumors have it that he has ties with the Inazuma region and may have a romantic link with another Inazuma character Ayaka. He may be a four-star or five-star Pyro character that uses a Polearm.

Tohama Release Date

Tohama is shown wearing Japanese-inspired clothing, which suggests that he could be from Inazuma. So far, Inazuma is not accessible in "Genshin Impact," but rumors have it that it could unlock in update 1.5. While there is no official confirmation on the launch of the said region and Tohama's launch, many fans speculate that the earliest date possible could be April 28.

Design And Other Details

While miHoYo has not yet released Tohama's official design, fans and industry insiders have been sharing their own concept of the Pyro character. Reliable industry insider Lumie shared on Twitter a 3D model showing Tohama's design. The character wears a red outfit with intermingling hues of red and brown.

The concept aligns with the photo shared by industry insider Nep Nep last December. The photo comes from a leak, which revealed eight characters anticipated to launch in the game and uncovered through a data mining activity. The insider believes that miHoYo would introduce Tohama as a five-star character, most likely to have a unique kit.

It is worth noting that these leaks about Tohama are not official. Fans should temper their expectations and take this with a pinch of salt. If the rumored Pyro character will be playable in "Genshin Impact," more leaks about him would surface online very soon.

"Genshin Impact" is available on PC, PlayStation 4, iOS and Android devices.
