Genshin Impact Shenhe Trailer Teases the Latest New Character

Genshin Impact Shenhe Trailer

MiHoYo have released a new Genshin Impact Shenhe trailer, introducing the gacha RPG’s next 5-star character.

Shenhe is the new 5-star character being added in the 2.4 “Fleeting Colors in Flight” update. She is one of Cloud Retainer’s most beloved disciples, and one of the few mortals lucky enough to train under an Adeptus. Shenhe comes from a family of renowned exorcists but found her way to Cloud Retainer at a young age.

She has spent much of her life in the distant mountains of Liyue, learning not just from Cloud Retainer, but many of the other Adepti and Divine Beasts that safeguard Rex Lapis’ kingdom. Her time training in the secluded wilderness of Liyue has made her cool and distant to other mortals.

You can find the Genshin Impact Shenhe trailer below:

In gameplay terms, Shenhe is a Cryo Polearm support character. Her main gimmicks involve increasing the party’s Cryo damage and reducing the Cryo and Physical resistance of enemies. This will make her a great party member to pair with Cloud Retainer’s other 5-star Cryo disciple, Ganyu. Luckily for fans who missed her the first time, Ganyu will be getting a rerun banner later this update.

Players will be able to obtain Shenhe in 2.4’s first limited time character wish banner. She will be joined by Yun Jin, a brand-new 4-star Geo Polearm character, and a rerun banner for Xiao.

Genshin Impact is available and free-to-play on Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store and official website), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, AndroidiOS, and coming soon to Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
