Klee could be getting a rerun in the Genshin Impact 3.8 update.

According to SYP, the Genshin Impact 3.8 update could see the Klee banner return. They also note that the pint-sized Pyro character may also get her very own 5-star skin. Additionally, Tao has stated that Eula could be getting a long-awaited rerun in 3.8. This is obviously exciting news for any Travelers who have yet to unlock both characters.

Additionally, another Genshin Impact leaker noted that Soutine – a new character will be added to the game. According to ZiaoBi, Soutine is a Hydro Claymore character that hails from the Fontaine region. 

Not much is currently known about any of the game’s Fontaine characters, but a leak did reveal some early concept art. Whether Soutine is among them remains to be seen, but for now, that’s everything we know about the 3.8 banners.

New Genshin Impact 3.8 character

According to reliable leaker, Tao, a new 4-star character will be added in the Genshin Impact 3.8 update. While no official images have been revealed, that hasn’t stopped fan images like the above from appearing online.

Tao notes that the character likely wields an Electro Vision and hails from the Inazuma region, as she shares a similar design to Kujou Sara and Raiden Shogun. When describing how this upcoming unit looks, Tao gave the following description: “Right side ponytail up to shoulders — not short hair. Hair color is dark chocolate not purple.”

Of course, like all leaks, this design and information could change before the official release. We’ll be sure to update this section as soon as more details are revealed.

Genshin Impact 3.8 event leaks

Not much is currently known about the Genshin Impact 3.8 events, but BLANK has noted that there is a Rollercoaster minigame. During this event, players can supposedly attack opponents on either their left or right side. There’s not a huge amount to go off, but it certainly sounds very different from past Genshin Impact events. 

Genshin Impact 3.8 location leaks

Current Genshin Impact 3.8 leaks have found a new region, which goes by the codename of Penumbra. According to BLANK, Penumbra is related to “water-formed Mirages/Delusions” and is possibly related to the Land of Oceanids and Lochfolk. 

It’s also said that this aquatic region shares similarities to Enkanomiya, The Chasm, and The Golden Apple Archipelago. Quite how big Penumbra will be when compared to other POIs is unknown, but we’ll likely hear more about this location as we get closer to the 3.8 release date.
