Genshin Impact developer miHoYo has released a new trailer for its latest character, the Hydro-attuned, Catalyst-wielding Divine Priestess of Watatsumi Island. Sangonomiya Kokomi. The latest and greatest playable character for Genshin Impact is set to join the roster as part of a new character banner tomorrow, September 21st, and the character demo trailer offers the best look yet at her in action.
As expected from a Hydro-attuned playable character, Sangonomiya Kokomi's "talents" or abilities are a mix of dealing Hydro damage and healing allies. Her strongest ability, Nereid's Ascension, dealing Hydro damage to the enemies surrounding her and then boosts her damage across her various abilities and attacks based on her max HP with a "Ceremonial Garment." Her normal and charged attacks in this form will also heal nearby party members based on her max HP as well, and he resistant to interruption is increased for the duration.

The new character banner featuring Sangonomiya Kokomi as the event-exclusive 5-star character will also include the 4-star characters Rosaria, Beidou, and Xingqiu as those with boosted drop rates.
