'Genshin Impact' Announces Arataki Itto

 "Genshin Impact" has announced that a new hero named Arataki Itto will be part of the game's 2.3 patch update that is expected to roll out in two months. The announcement was made on the Genshin Impact Twitter page by the game's developer and publisher, miHoYo.

A report by Forbes describes Arataki Itto as a "gang leader who had his vision stripped by Kujou Sara after the two fought, but now that the Vision Hunt Decree is over, wants it back." Arataki Itto is seen wielding a Geo Claymore, though his signature weapon is actually a large mace.

Per the Forbes report, Arataki Itto became an instant fan-favorite upon the announcement of his addition to the game. According to the report, "he was trending with over 100,000 tweets just a few hours after his reveal, and past that, he also single-handedly managed to get the word "Daddy" trending as well, to give you an indication of what kind of attention he is receiving."

Gorou to be Added to 'Genshin Impact'

A second character is set to be added to "Genshin Impact" once the 2.3 patch update rolls out.

That second character is Gorou, who is a general in the army of Sangonomiya Kokomi, per a report by Sportskeeda. Like Arataki Itto, Gorou is set to be a Geo user as well. Specifically, he is a Geo bow user.

The Sportskeeda report describes Gorou as someone who is trustworthy. He is also a good friend of Kaedehara Kazuha.
