Mihoyo’s latest character announcement for its online RPG Genshin Impact is certainly making waves on Twitter.
Announced ahead of time and way before he appears in story mode, we now get a first look at Genshin Impact’s latest upcoming character: Arataki Itto, the first and greatest head of the Arataki Gang.
He’s a Geo user who fights with a claymore, and now competes with Zhongli for the title of “Geo Daddy”. Naturally, the internet reacts to this handsome fellow with the six-pack, comparing him to strong characters from other anime and gaming mediums.
Given his elemental and weapon of choice, he may be the 5-star equivalent of current 4-star Knight of Favonius Noelle, though he might have an emphasis on higher DPS since that’s the current meta. Itto has no release date as of yet, but the internet is clearly clamouring for his impending arrival.
