Genshin Impact 1.6 Releases in June, but Inazuma is Still a Ways Off
miHoYo announced the Genshin Impact 1.6 release date and some new details, including the first playable Inazuma character and a new mini-region to explore.
Genshin Impact 1.6 releases June 9 and adds Kaedehara Kazuha as the new five-star character. He's an Anemo sword wielder specializing in plunge attacks and creating Swirl reactions, and as always he'll bring his own Archon Quest.
There's also a new set of outfits you can buy for Jean and Barbara, though these cost real-world money.
The Kazuha Archon Quest revolves around figuring out a way to sneak into the Inazuma region with Beidou and her pirate fleet, which means we'll have to wait until Genshin 1.7 to finally see the new region.
The other new story quest is about Klee, coinciding with the Klee banner rerun. A strange being called the Dodo-King confronts Klee and plans on stealing her precious Dodoco. Off you go to Dodoland, a new archipelago region, to try and save Klee's friend.
A new enemy called the Maguu Kenki lives in the region, and you'll use its parts for Kazuha's Ascension materials.
Finally is a set of updates to the Serenitea Pot, letting you invite other characters to the Realm Within so you can raise friendship levels with them.
