Genshin Impact's upcoming Version 2.2 update, "Into the Perilous Labyrinth of Fog," is set to release in just a few short days on October 13th, and ahead of that, developer miHoYo has lifted the curtain somewhat on upcoming characters set to join the video game's playable roster. More specifically, miHoYo has shared new information about Gorou, Canine Warrior, and Arataki Itto, the First and Greatest Head of the Arataki Gang.
Notably, it is known that the Version 2.2 update will include at least one new playable character in the form of Thoma, but every update for Genshin Impact is often followed by major leaks of upcoming characters set to join in the near future. While it is possible that Arataki Itto and Gorou are both attached to the Version 2.2 update, it is even more likely that they will instead join in the inevitable Version 2.3 update.
You can check out the details about Arataki Itto below, straight from miHoYo:
