Genshin Impact Leaks Tease Kazuha, Klee, Yoimiya Banner Rerun in 2.8

Kazuha is coming back in 2.8

April 3, 2022

Bad News for Kazuha Wanters (April 5 Update)

As pointed out by SYP, The Genshin Impact 2.8 Kazuha leaks below are now considered untrustworthy as the translator clarified the original Chinese message was too ambiguous to tell. WFP removed the leaks from its list after reexamination. Find our original story below.

Kazuha fans rejoice, new Genshin Impact leaks have finally confirmed a rerun not only for him but for Klee and Yoimiya as well, we have the details below.

Kaedehara Kazuha is one of the most popular male characters from Inazuma, and the first Inazuma character released before the region’s release in 2.0. However, Kazuha never got a banner rerun, so players who started Genshin Impact in 2.0 and beyond missed their sole chance to get him.


Kazuha and his deceased friend, nicknamed “Tomo” (friend in Japanese) by English fans, also played a big role in the Inazuma story chapters, so a considerable amount of players would like him to join their party. And it’ll finally happen in 2.8.

Genshin Impact Leaks – Kazuha, Klee and Yoimiya Banner Rerun in 2.8 leaked

New leaks from NGA have mentioned that Kaedehara Kazuha, Klee, and Yoimiya will all get banner reruns in Genshin Impact 2.8. While the leak was first shared by someone with no track record, another leaker, Uncle Y, confirmed it. The discussion on NGA was later translated by the dedicated community on WFP and shared by several aggregators on Twitter most notably the Save Your Primos team.

Klee already got several reruns but this will be the first time Kazuha and Yoimiya are coming back.


What are NGA leaks?

Genshin Impact leaks have two major sources. First, you have data mined content. Talented data miners get their hands on beta builds and pre-download builds to leak character kits, 4-star characters featured on banners, voiced lines, etc. These are the most common leaks.

Next, you have leaks shared on the Chinese gaming forum NGA. These leaks are shared by insiders and those with sources close to Genshin Impact developer HoYoverse. Usually, these are much more sus and unreliable than data mined leaks, unless they’re shared and confirmed by leakers with past track records. And this is exactly what happened with this new Kazuha, Klee, and Yoimiya banner rerun leak.

2.8 is a full rerun patch, release date

With the six weeks time span between each update, Genshin Impact Version 2.8 is scheduled to release on June 22, 2022. Several leakers have already mentioned that Version 2.8 does not feature new characters and instead only has rerun banners of past characters. Moreover, 2.8 was also leaked as the final 2.0 update, with 2.9 being actually 3.0, with the release of the Sumeru region, the land of the Dendro Archon. Do you plan to pull either Kazuha, Klee, or Yoimiya? Tell us in the comments!
