Genshin Impact v2.5: “When the Sakura Bloom” brings forth Yae Miko; Raiden Shogun and Kokomi banner reruns


“The ancient Sacred Sakura stands on the peak of Mt. Yougou, its roots running long and deep into the earth, stretching endlessly. Underneath its shadow, there are people who wholeheartedly wish for blessings, a kitsune who is amused at the floating world, and a god who yearns for transient eternity. Everything in this world changes, people come and go, but the Sacred Sakura blooms brilliantly every year, its petals going where the wind leads.”

After the awesome Lantern Rite patch, featuring the latest 5-star polearm user, Shenhe and all of our favorite Liyue characters, Genshin Impact is not pulling any punches with the preview of the new upcoming patch, “When the Sakura Bloom” releasing this February 16.

Featuring the Lady Guuji of the Grand Narukami Shrine, Yae Miko, an Electro catalyst user. And a new 5-star catalyst, Kagura’s Verity. This patch will also feature another double rerun banner for Raiden Shogun and Sangonomiya Kokomi for the second half of the patch.


The introduction of Enkanomiya brought a new area to explore. This is to be featured more on the upcoming event, “Three Realms Gateway Offering”. As well as new enemies that sure looks menacing and intriguing at the same time9e42c44407b8e7951f74caf4caf83a76_1535634861583824624

New story quests for Sangonomiya Kokomi and Raiden Shogun will also be featured as well as a new boss, that is weirdly looked like the Almighty Ogosho.


Aside from the new domain Trounce, a free 4-star catalyst weapon from the “Three Realms Gateway Offering” event and primogems, we will also be able to create our own domain, special drinks in Angel’s Share, a Hyakunnin Ikki Rerun and the Overflowing Mastery event which will let you get double the amount of Talent books for your respective characters.

With the promise of  the soon release of The Chasm on the version 2.5 preview stream, Genshin Impact is steam rolling the hype of the game as we explore this new types of area all around Teyvat.
