Today HoYoverse revealed a new character that will come to its ultra-popular free-to-play RPG Genshin Impact down the line.
The new character is named Kirara and she's a nekomata. Her tagline is "Cat Upon the Eaves" and she's defined as "Gold Level Courier of the Komaniya Express." She has a Dendro vision and her constellation is Arcella.
She's described as follows.
She's an adorable little nekomata. Just whisper 'the parcel delivery is going to be late.' in her ear while she's asleep, and she'll spring right up and start dashing faster than General Gorou does on the battlefield.
The timing of the reveal indicates that she'll be added via the game's gacha with version 3.7. One interesting element is that HoYoverse's modus operandi normally has them reveal not one, but two characters at this point. The reason behind this change remains unknown, but perhaps we'll get another character reveal soon.
In the meanwhile, we already have all the info about version 3.6, which will be released on April 12.
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.
