Genshin Impact update 2.0: miHoYo laying groundwork for Nintendo Switch release?

Genshin Impact is getting its biggest update yet soon. On Wednesday July 21 miHoYo will release Genshin Impact update 2.0, which will add a whole new region to the hit game – Inazuma. This updated map isn’t the only change coming to Genshin Impact with version 2.0 – the inbound patch will also add gardening and changes to the Spiral Abyss.

Genshin Impact update 2.0 will also, of course, add new weapons and see the arrival of new character banners.

New characters heading to Genshin Impact with update 2.0 are Ayaka, Sayu, and Yoimiya.

This trio of new Genshin Impact characters are tied to the Inazuma region.

Besides this, miHoYo has quietly announced one other new feature for Genshin Impact, which could be a sign the release date for the long awaited Nintendo Switch version is on the horizon.

It had previously been rumoured that Genshin Impact was getting a cross save feature with update 2.0.

This feature would be important to the Switch version of the free-to-play game as it would allow existing players to easily transfer over their progress.

The news was revealed by the Genshin Report Twitter account towards the start of the month.

The @GenshinReport Twitter posted: “Cross-save between mobile, PC, and PlayStation will be introduced in version 2.0

“It will also be present when Genshin comes to Switch and allow for hoyolab on consoles”.

And now the official Genshin Impact Twitter account has confirmed that a cross save feature is launching with update 2.0.

The @GenshinImpact Twitter recently posted: “Greetings, dear Travelers,

“The cross-save function between account for #PlayStation and #miHoYo Account is coming to you in Version 2.0.”

While we still don’t know when exactly the Switch version of Genshin Impact will launch, the cross save feature will be an ideal tool for any existing players looking to use the Nintendo console as their main platform for playing the hugely popular free game going forward.

Explaining how the cross save feature works, miHoYo said: “The cross-save function between accounts allows you to link accounts from two different platforms (your account for PSN and your miHoYo Account) and share your progress as well as your in-game data between the two accounts. Once your account for PSN is linked to a valid email address, you will be able to log in on iOS/Android/PC using your miHoYo Account, or on PlayStation using the account for PSN linked to the email address associated with your miHoYo Account and resume your game progress.”

Genshin Impact update 2.0 has been dubbed ‘The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia’.

Here’s more details on the inbound patch: “A foreign thunderstorm tears the sky apart, splitting eternity. Flashes of lightning cut through the darkness, as a god’s will manifests.

“Overcome endless thunderstorms, set foot on the island of cherry blossoms, and witness the Eternity pursued by Her Excellency, the Almighty Narukami Ogosho.”

Genshin Impact update 1.6 leak: Character skins FINALLY coming in next miHoYo update

New leaks have revealed Genshin Impact could be getting one major thing it’s been missing since launch with update 1.6. As highlighted in a post on Reddit, leakers have discovered proof of two character skins that are set to debut with Genshin Impact update 1.6. These skins are for Barbara and Jean, with Barbara getting the Summertime Sparkle costume and Jean getting Sea Breeze Dandelion skin.
According to the Genshin Impact update 1.6 leak, Barbara’s Summertime Sparkle costume will be obtained as a reward from the Echoing Narration Event.

However, it’s unclear how Jean’s Sea Breeze Dandelion costume will get unlocked.

The leaked skins were revealed by Twitter user Project Celestia who also shared a 3D render of Barbara’s Summertime Sparkle costume.

The character skins were spotted in the 1.6 update beta and could be subject to change before getting released.

There is typically a six week gap in between releases so we could see Genshin Impact update 1.6 launch on June 9.

Leaks have already revealed other things fans can expect from Genshin Impact update 1.6, with Kazuha and Yoimiya expected to be among the new character banners.

These characters are expected to be four star characters, while the Klee banner is rumoured to be getting a rerun as well.

Genshin Impact 1.5 leaks: Mihoyo addresses early character list reveal

Genshin Impact 1.4 has only just been released but it won’t be long before new characters arrive during Genshin 1.5.

And from what has been shared so far, there will be at least one five-star character available to unlock.

According to the latest leaks, Geshin Impact 1.5 will be arriving in late April and will bring Eula to the roster.

These most recent leaks are not being taken lightly by developers MiHoYo who have gone as far as addressing the information being shared, telling gamers on Twitter:

“Recently, we discovered the dissemination of leaked version 1.5. content.

“Such behaviour not only disrupts our plans to develop and promote the new version, but also causes some Travelers to have misconceptions about the content of the new version.

“Here, we kindly ask for the support and help of all Travelers to resist leaks, and maintain a fair gaming environment. We will also increase our efforts to deal with such illegal disclosures.”

From what has been shared so far, the Genshin team is planning on cracking down on recent leaks but it’s unclear what new content will be available during Genshin 1.5

As referenced in the statement, certain content might have leaked and linked to different versions of the game.

But like with most development projects, some things might need to be delayed, and could cause headaches if they have been shared by unofficial sources.

And it’s probably going to be a full month before we hear more about the Genshin Impact 1.5 release date and what is being planned for it.

In the meantime, there is still plenty of Genshin Impact 1.4 content to look forward to and play.

The Invitation to Windblume event is scheduled to kick off on March 19, the latest in a series of new changes made to the game.

During the event, Travelers can complete challenges related to the Windblume Festival to obtain Festive Tour Tickets and Peculiar Collab Coupons.

Gamers on PS4, PC and Mobile will be able to exchange these in the Event Shop for the event-exclusive weapon Windblume Ode (Bow) and its exclusive refinement material “The Visible Winds,” as well as the Crown of Insight.

There’s no rush to jump in as the new Genshin event will be running until early April and requires Adventure Rank 20 or above.

A message from Mihoyo confirms: “Travelers can participate in three types of Festive Challenges during the event: Bullseye Balloons, Floral Freefall, and Ballads of Breeze. Complete the challenges to obtain Festive Tour Tickets.

“A new stage will be unlocked for each Festive Challenge during each act. In single-player mode, beat certain scores to win prizes off the corresponding characters.

“In Co-Op Mode, you can try to best your friends in Bullseye Balloons and Floral Freefall challenges.

“After the Windblume Festival begins, more activities will appear in the Peculiar Wonderland as the event progresses, including Peculiar Challenges, Peculiar Trials, and Peculiar Conqueror tasks. Travelers can complete the challenges to obtain Peculiar Collab Coupons.”

Due to the time differences, the next big event for Genshin Impact is expected to start late in the day on March 19, in the UK.
