Genshin Impact 2.5 Leaks Yae Miko Banner Release Estimate Leaked

We have a release date for Yae Miko in Genshin Impact

December 31, 2021

Yae Miko is one of the most anticipated future playable characters of Genshin Impact, and her banner release date estimate has been leaked then officially revealed a few minutes later.

Yae Miko plays a primordial part in the Archon Quest of Inazuma. While the kitsune shrine maiden isn’t playable yet, her 3D model is already included in-game, and players already met with Yae several times.

Moreover, Yae Miko is also a familiar face for Honkai Impact 3rd fans, as she is based on Yae Sakura, a character in Honkai. They have the same voice actress in Japanese as well: Ayane Sakura, one of the top seiyuu in Japan.

All of this makes Yae Miko a very popular character, and she finally has a release date in Genshin Impact now.

Genshin Impact leaks: Yae Miko 2.5 release date leaked

Yae Miko will either be released with the launch of Genshin Impact Version 2.5 on February 16, 2022 or three weeks later with the second banner of the version, around March 9.

As explained by Ubatcha on Twitter, a Genshin Impact leaker from the Russian community has shared the “drip marketing” artwork for Yae Miko, confirming Ei’s friend will be released in Version 2.5.

This artwork will be revealed by miHoYo in the next few days, probably on Monday, January 3. Note that the Shenhe artwork had leaked a few hours before its official release as well. Personally, I’d guess it’s possible someone in the Russian social team of Genshin Impact accidentally uploaded the artwork early.

This also means non-whale players will have to choose between Shenhe, all the reruns in 2.4, and Yae Miko. What do you guys plan to do? Tell us in the comments or reach out to me on Twitter @A_iyane07.

Genshin Impact 2.4 will be launching on January 5, 2022, on PS4, PS5, PC, iOS, and Android.

Yae Miko 2.5 release officially revealed (Update)

Soon after the leak, the Genshin Impact social accounts officially revealed Yae Miko is coming in 2.5 through Drip Marketing.

Yae Miko new official lore

Yae Miko ‧ Astute Amusement
Guuji of the Grand Narukami Shrine

The Grand Narukami Shrine’s head shrine maiden and a descendant of Kitsune lineage, Eternity’s servant and friend… and the intimidating editor-in-chief of Yae Publishing House, a publisher of light novels.
There’s no need to uncover her every facet, as they are all reflective of Yae Miko. Yet, all the same, they are not revealing of her true nature.
Like fragments of a mirror, each attitude reflects a different version of her. By being enveloped in many identities, she has become a brilliant diamond surrounded by countless mirrors.
There are hundreds of facets: solemn or cheerful, sympathetic or aloof.
No one knows the truth, just as how no one can easily spot a kitsune brushing past passers-by in the mystic woods.
But if the kitsune watches humans, where will her destiny lead?
