Raiden Shogun returns.

There are also two new characters up for grabs, making this an update fans won’t want to miss out on.

Here’s all the new characters coming in the Genshin Impact 3.3 update banners.

Genshin Impact 3.3: What characters are available in banners? 

There will be four sets of banners available during the 3.3 update with two being released at a time.

Each banner will contain a five-star character and three four-star characters which you can collect.

Not all of the four-star characters have been announced, but we do know one of them.

Faruzan is a new character coming to Genshin Impact, and is a bow-carrying Anemo fighter.

There is also a different five-star character in each banner, the new Anemo character, Wanderer, and three powerful returning characters; Arataki Itto, Raiden Shogun, and Kamisato Ayato.

Genshin Impact 3.3: When is each character available in banners?

The first set of banners will run from December 7 to December 19, giving you just under two weeks to collect the characters you want.

Here are the characters available in each banner:

  • Banner 1: Wanderer (five-star figure, Catalyst, Anemo), Faruzan (four-star figure, Bow, Anemo), and two other four-star figures.
  • Banner 2: Arataki Itto (five-star figure, Claymore, Geo), Faruzan (four-star figure, Bow, Anemo) and two more four-star figures.

Wanderer features completely new mechanics, such as the ability to levitate, and they have a separate stamina bar.

The second set of banners will run from December 20 to January 18, 2023, giving a bit longer to pick up these characters.

The second set of characters are:

  • Banner 3: Raiden Shogun (five-star figure, Polearm, Electro) and three four-star figures.
  • Banner 4: Kamisato Ayato (five-star figure, Sword, Hydro) and three four-star figures.

Update 3.3 also features Genshin Impact’s new permanent TCG mode, Genius Invokation.

This will feature a vast array of PvE content as well as opportunities to face other players.
