Genshin Impact: announced Shikanoin Heizou, new character Anemo, here are the first details

Genshin Impact

While Genshin Impact players are still waiting for news on the new date of Update 2.7, miHoYo surprisingly a few minutes ago officially presented Shikanoin Heizou, a new Anemo character. Below are the first details and the official artwork.

According to details shared by miHoYo, Shikanoin Heizou is a young detective from the Tenryou Commission, one of the three executive bodies that govern Inazuma, described as a "free spirit" and undisciplined "but also" cheerful and lively ".

"Doushin Shikanoin has admirable intelligence and intuition. Even if he has a wild demeanor, his talents should not be ignored. The Tenryou Commision is incredibly lucky to have such a man in her ranks", reads Kamisato Ayato's description.

At the moment miHoYo has not shared further details, but from the symbol next to the name and from the artwork, we can guess that Shikanoin is an Anemo character who uses swords (or catalyst, according to some leaks that emerged on the network of recent). We assume that he will debut on Genshin Impact with the launch of version 2.7, or 2.8 at the latest.

In the meantime we remind you that every week miHoYo will give a bonus that includes 400 Primogem to apologize for the delay in the publication of Update 2.7. Furthermore, just a few days ago, Zenless Zone Zero was announced, the new action RPG with an urban fantasy setting.

‘Genshin Impact’ Reveals New 2.7 Or 2.8 Character, Shikanoin Heizou



Genshin Impact’s next update is delayed indefinitely due to the COVID lockdown situation in China, an uncharacteristic break for the game which has produced non-stop updates every six weeks or so since launch.

But they are continuing to promote what’s coming eventually, including the reveal of a brand new character today, Shikanoin Heizou, a new Anemo hero.

If you ask me, he’s the most 4 star looking 4 star who has ever 4 starred, but who knows, he could be fun. Here’s what we know about him:

Shikanoin Heizou ‧ Analytical Harmony

Detective of the Tenryou Commission

A young detective from the Tenryou Commission. Free-spirited and unruly, but cheerful and lively.

'Doushin Shikanoin has admirable wit and insight. While he is unfettered and unrestrained in demeanor, one should not dismiss his talents. The Tenryou Commission is incredibly fortunate to have such a man in their ranks.' - Kamisato Ayato

At first glance, Heizou seems like an ordinary young man, but he is actually the undisputed number one detective in the Tenryou Commission.

Not only does he possess a wild imagination, but he also has a mind for meticulous logic and reasoning, as well as an extraordinary sense of intuition when it comes to solving cases.

Whenever a crime occurs, his colleagues rely on experience to help them with handling the case, but Heizou brings in an out-of-the-box perspective and gets straight to the crux of the case.

People are impressed by his razor-sharp intuition, thinking that his reasoning ability and efficiency are godlike. Here, Heizou would simply reply with his signature smile: 'I don't know, maybe this is something that even the gods can't do!'

He’s an Anemo sword-user, and I believe again, he’s going to be a new 4 star. It has not been stated whether he will appear in Update 2.7 alongside the already announced two new characters, Yelan and Kuki Shinobu, as he could be a 2.8 character instead. I would normally not expect three new characters in one patch very often, as it’s usually 1-2, but this is a unique circumstance because of the delay, so anything’s possible.

Heizou will join Kazuha as another Anemo sword-user, another reason I think he’s a 4 star because Kazuha is already a 5 star in that category. We do not know any details about his moveset or kit yet, and since 2.7/2.8 don’t have a release date, we don’t know when he’s coming yet either. Stay tuned for more information to come.
