The next big update version 2.3 for Genshin Impact is coming out later in November. Like in previous major releases, this month’s rollout of the miHoYo role-playing game will introduce several additions to refresh the gameplay with new content.
The seasonal big event, named Shadows Amidst Snowstorms, takes players back to the snowy peaks of the Dragonspine Mountain region. Here, interesting unique challenges await gamers. To add fun, you can now even create a snowman.
Also making a return are two frosty characters Eula and Albedo. Fans of the RPG can unlock them both through a couple of wishes in the new character event.
That said, as with any new Genshin Impact update, people eagerly await the arrival of brand new characters. Thankfully, we have not one but two stars making their entry into the worldwide hit game. First, we have the 5-star Arataki Itto who is a demon possessing a mega earth-powered claymore. The second is the 4-star Gorou with a tail and fox ear, whose appearance should appeal to a certain demographic.
For more details, check out the preview of Genshin Impact 2.3 in the official trailer, below.

Arataki Itto seems to have a strong will to win, no matter if it’s a ramen eating contest with a fox-eared lady, playing games with children, or his rematch challenge to Kujou Sara. We heard he even established his own crew, the Arataki Gang. In battle, Arataki Itto also possesses powerful attacks, wielding a huge Claymore and the power of Geo. Both his Normal Attacks and Elemental power can be very compelling. Itto may gain stacks of Superlative Superstrength with his Normal Attacks and Elemental Skill. Each stack of Superlative Superstrength allows him to slash an empowered Charged Attack, the Arataki Kesagiri, and once the last stack is consumed, an especially powerful attack will be unleashed.
With his Elemental Burst, Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil, Itto lets his inner Raging Oni King emerge, using his Oni King’s Kanabou in battle. When Itto transforms into the Raging Oni King, his Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will be converted to Geo Damage. In addition, Itto’s Elemental and Physical RES drops, while his ATK increases based on his DEF, and his Normal Attack Speed will also increase.
Gorou will join as a new four-star character in the same wish event with Itto. The great general of Watasumi Island’s force is in fact younger than many of his subordinates, but he gained the trust of his comrades and the Traveler in the Inazuma storyline. Gorou also wields a Geo Visio, but he favors the bow and can buff his teammates in combat. Both his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst deals AoE Geo Damage and buffs characters on the field. Besides, the more Geo characters there are in your party, the more bonuses Gorou may provide.
