Genshin Impact 3.5 may be a while off but that hasn’t stopped a number of leaks from appearing online, giving Travelers a sneak peek at the upcoming content. So, here’s everything we currently know about the 3.5 banners and more. 

While the Genshin Impact 3.5 update won’t release for a while yet, a number of renowned leakers have already discovered some exciting details. The main addition in this update is rumored to be Dehya, an upcoming 5-star Pyro Claymore character

If that wasn’t enough, Mika could also be playable in the 3.5 Version update. This is obviously great news for Travelers looking for another Cryo character to add to their roster.

Aside from these additions, the update is rumored to see the release of a new Archon quest added and a specialized Claymore for Dehya. So, if you wish to know everything that’s coming to the game in Version 3.5, then we’ve compiled all the details in one place for you here.


Is there a Genshin Impact 3.5 release date?

HoYoverse has yet to reveal the official release date for the Genshin Impact 3.5 update. However, with the 3.4 releasing on January 18, 2023, we can expect the 3.5 update to launch on March 1, 2023. 

Just like all leaks and rumors, this is just speculation based on the game’s current release schedule and could change in the future. As always, we’ll be sure to update this section once more details have been revealed.

Dehya is rumored to release in the 3.5 update.

Genshin Impact news account, SaveYourPrimos, has rounded up all the current details we have on the 3.5 banners. According to SYP, the two characters who will be made available in 3.5 are Dehya and Mika

While official information surrounding Dehya and Mika has been scarce, we do have a few details about each character. First up is Dehya, who is confirmed to be a Pyro character that belongs to the faction of Eremites — a band of mercenaries who carry out tasks for the highest bidder.

According to recent leaks, Dehya’s abilities are tailored around raising her allies’ resistance to interruption, and can even unleash coordinated attacks when she’s not on the battlefield. Her Elemental Burst is also said to deal significant AoE Pyro damage.

Next up is Mika, the Cryo Front-Line Land Surveyor of the Knights of Favonius. As a member of the Knights of Favonius, his role is to help protect the region from threats and report any potential dangers. Of course, like all leaks, these character releases could change before the 3.5 release date comes to Genshin Impact. 

Genshin Impact 3.5 events

Aside from a new Archon quest being added in 3.5, Genshin Impact leaker UBatcha notes that there is an event named “PacMan” in the game’s files. While gameplay has yet to be revealed, a screenshot of the leaked event has appeared on the Genshin Impact leaks Reddit page.

The image appears to show balloons that are dotted around various mazes, while teleport pads enable Travelers to reposition and avoid Anemo Slimes. While it’s still early days, it certainly seems like HoYoverse has taken inspiration from Bandai Namco’s iconic game.

Meanwhile, the Anemo character, Faruzan, is also rumored to be getting her own Hangout event that Travelers will be able to delve into. News is rather light on the ground regarding the 3.5 events, but UBatcha also notes that Travelers can expect to see another Archon quest added in 3.5. 

Lastly, one leaker also recently revealed that the Pokemon-style creature collection event, Fabulous Fungus Frenzy, will also be making its return in 3.5. This event made its debut in 3.2 and has proven incredibly popular amongst Genshin fans.
