With the upcoming Genshin Impact 2.7 update, many players are keen to know who they could expect to see in the upcoming Character Event Banners. It’s almost certain that the upcoming 5-star Yelan will be getting her banner during 2.7, and the new 4-star Kuki Shinobu will also surely appear. But what other 5-star – or 5-stars – could we see appear in 2.7’s banners?

Genshin Version 2.7 Leaks

The above image was leaked, which depicts the key artwork for Version 2.7; ‘Hidden Dreams in the Depths.’ Alongside the newest characters Yelan and Shinobu, we can also see the 5-star characters Arataki Itto and Xiao. The 4-star character Yanfei is also featured. Usually, characters who appear in key artwork appear not only in that version’s events, but are also featured on the Character Event Banner. Bearing this in mind, there are a couple potential scenarios for the banners: Yelan’s banner runs in one half of 2.7, and the boys both have reruns during the other half. Or one of the boys reruns alongside Yelan during one half, and the other gets a stand-alone banner during the other half. The first situation seems more likely, but neither is confirmed.

As for which banners Shinobu and Yanfei will feature on, that’s also up for speculation. Shinobu is a member of the Arataki Gang, which Arataki Itto leads. So considering their link, if Itto does get a rerun during 2.7, it’s likely Shinobu will feature on it alongside him. As with Yanfei, there’s a chance she’ll feature on either Yelan or Xiao’s banners. This is because they all hail from Liyue, so they share that connection.

When is the 2.7 update?

Since 2.7 has been delayed, players will have to wait a little while longer before the upcoming banners are officially revealed. When they are, we’ll be the first to let you know.
