Genshin Impact new characters Dehya and Mika

While Genshin Impact fans are still waiting for version 3.4 and its new characters, HoYoverse already revealed the new heroes who'll become playable in 3.5.

The reveal, made via the developer's social media and showcases Dehya and Mika. 

Dheya, nicknamed "Flame-Mane" and defined as an "Unfettered Desert Mercenary" is a pyro character associated with the Mantichora constellation. Players have already met her during the latest chapters of the story in Sumeru.

Mika Schmidt is a cryo character nicknamed "Coordinates of Clear Frost" and defined as "Front-Line Land Surveyor of the Knights of Favonius," associated with the Palumbus constellation. He belongs to Eula's Reconnaissance Company.

More information about the two characters will likely be shared in a few weeks when HoYoverse is ready for its traditional reveal live stream for the upcoming update. 

At the moment, we don't yet know when update 3.5 will be released, but version 3.4 will launch on January 18 with the title "The Exquisite Night Chimes." It will include two new characters, the handsome scribe Alhaitham and the diminutive martial artist Yaoyao, on top of new outfits for Lisa & Kamisato Ayaka. If you want to see more about it, you can check out the announcement trailer.

If you're unfamiliar with Genshin Impact, it's currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, iOS, and Android. A Nintendo Switch version has been announced a long time ago, but HoYoverse has gone under the radar with it and has not said anything since despite confirming multiple times that it hasn't been canceled. We'll have to wait and see if 2023 will finally be the year of Genshin on Nintendo's console.
