MiHoYo appears to have officially confirmed some details about the upcoming playable characters in the game on its official Twitter account. It recently shared some information about three upcoming characters – Baal or Raiden Shogun, Kokomi and Sara.

While miHoyo shared little details about these characters, it is generally nothing new from what fans have learned about their lore from earlier leaks.

"Genshin Impact" is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, iOS and Android devices.
