Genshin Impact Ganyu Gacha Banner Starts January 12 - Characters Featured Are Noelle Xingqiu And Xiangling

Adrift in the Harbor is the new time-limited gacha banner featuring Cryo + Bow character Ganyu in Genshin Impact on PS4, PS5, PC and Mobile.

January 10, 2021

On January 10, miHoYo revealed the full details for the Ganyu gacha banner, Adrift in the Harbor, in Genshin Impact (PC, PS5, PS4, Mobile, soon on Switch). The new Ganyu limited gacha banner has Xiangling, Xingqiu, and Noelle as its four star characters.

The Ganyu gacha banner in Genshin Impact, Adrift in the Harbor, will go from January 12 to February 2, 2021.

As usual, a new weapon gacha banner will be coming as well.

Lastly, the first part of Ganyu’s Story Quest, Sinae Unicornis, will be added January 12:

This banner will follow the Albedo banner. Personally, as usual, I don’t recommend pulling on the weapon banners. Except if you’re the biggest, tastiest whale there is, sought by the best Japanese chiefs and fishermen violating international fishing laws.

The ongoing banner with Albedo is ending on January 12. While the Dragonspine event introduced new character Rosaria,voiced by Ai Kakuma (Edelgard in Fire Emblem Three Houses), it looks like Rosaria won’t be playable anytime soon.

Genshin Impact (PS4, PS5, Switch, PC, Mobile) Ganyu Teaser Trailer

Ganyu is a Cryo character using Bows. Moreover, she’s super cute and those who understand 2D culture will definitly feel like marrying her regardless of their gender or orientation. Higurashi afficionados in particular might wonder if anyone can * Ganyu’s horns like Hanyu’s. Last but not least, Reina Ueda, (the seiyuu of Ajimi in PriPara) voices Ganyu. If you don’t look down on kids anime, this should pique your interest. The Ganyu gacha banner is a nice banner to pull for if you need a Cryo character in Genshin Impact.

In conclusion, personally speaking, I believe the Ganyu banner has surprising characters choices, but these aren’t bad. Firstly, it’s true past gacha banners already featured multiple times Noelle, Xingqiu and Xiangling. Secondly, Xiangling and Noelle are two characters the game gives you for free. However, this means many players will be able to bring them to Constellation 1 at the very least. With that said, while Xingqiu and Xiangling are from Liyue, and are two of the Genshin Impact characters whose names most Caucasian people have trouble pronouncing, I was definitely expecting the banner to be full Liyue. Furthermore, Ningguang’s absence is particularly surprising. Seeing Ganyu works for Ningguang. Then again, there is no correlation between the game’s story and the gacha banners, and Ganyu is the latest example.

With the Closed Beta Test of Version 1.3, miHoYo is changing Zhongli and Geo characters. February 2021 will mark the official launch of Ver1.3. While we don’t know yet when it’s coming, Inazuma will be the next of the seven regions of Teyvat to be added.
