With version 4.0 right around the corner, Genshin Impact developer HoYoverse just revealed two more characters coming down the line.
The first new character revealed is Neuvilette, described as Ordainer of "Inexorable Judgment" and "Iudex of Fontaine."
He's a Hydro character and his constellation is unknown. Interestingly, the word "vision" in his description is replaced by question marks like the constellation.
HoYoverse also provided some interesting flavor text about him:
"Given that our previous behind-the-scenes editorial on the Hydro Archon earned us the honorable epithet of 'tabloid journalism' from our dear Monsieur Neuvillette, this time we'll be focusing on the mysterious Iudex himself. We know little indeed of his true character, and sadly our multiple requests for an interview were all turned down. Instead, we have decided to reach out and draw upon the wisdom of the masses. In the pursuit of the truth, all anonymous submissions and attestations of manifestly questionable veracity have been filtered out. We were rather intrigued, however, by the following letter written in a particularly adorable script:
"If the Darknight Hero really does exist, he's probably just someone in disguise. When he gets up in the morning to brush his teeth, it's the real him. Only in the dead of night does he become the Darknight Hero. But not (Monsieur) Neuvillette. The Chief Justice IS the real him. For us Melusines, our ideal of the perfect father — that's also the real him. The only person that isn't really him is the one that goes by the name of Neuvillette." From this, we can safely surmise... that Neuvillette must be the only male Melusine! Granted, the Melusines actually appeared much later than when Neuvillette took up his post. But in the face of such ironclad evidence, there's bound to be some way of explaining this!"
— Seven Nations Gazette, a notorious tabloid
The second new character revealed is Wriothesley, described as "Emissary of Solitary Iniquity" and "Lord of the Fortress of Meropide."
He'a s cryo character and his constellation is Cerberus. Below you can read more flavor text about him.
"Navia, do you remember when I refused the title of 'Baron' bestowed upon me by the Palais Mermonia a few years back? Well, that's beside the point. Today, I finally met the Administrator of the Fortress of Meropide. I had always assumed that 'Duke' was simply a hollow title too... But it turns out that Wriothesley is far more worldly than he looks."
— Callas, former President of the Spina di Rosula
"Administrator of the Fortress of Meropide" — If Wriothesley needed a namecard, this would suffice. No foreword, and no epilogue. Just like that place of exiled convicts he's in charge of, standing there silently at the bottom of the sea. Despite its discretion, as a resting place for criminals, the Fortress of Meropide harbors a network of conflicting interests that would have a corrupting influence on many. But even if someone was bent on infiltrating this place, they'd soon be swallowed up like breadcrumbs in a bowl of soup. Some have lauded His Grace's aptitude for taking care of thorny problems. Hearing such praise, Wriothesley would simply lower his teacup... and pick up his newspaper. "You've got the wrong end of the stick. They just wanted somewhere to lead well-ordered lives, and I gave them the 'tranquility' they required."
Genshin Impact is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, iOS, and Android.
A Nintendo Switch version has been announced a while ago, but HoYoverse hasn't provided any update about it as of late.
In just a few days, on August 16, the game will be updated to version 4.0 including a brand new realm named Fontaine alongside new characters Liney and Lynette, while Freminet will be added with the event wish that will come with the second phase of the update.
Just yesterday, we saw a teaser for the next Melodies of an Endless Journey concert.
