The next Genshin Impact banner will see a new character make their debut in the game, so find out when the new banner will release, when the current one will end, and what reruns will return.

Like most gacha games, Genshin Impact has a rotating banner that players need to use to recruit the game’s powerful five-star characters. Not only do these new release banners enable Travelers to experiment with different team comps and playstyles, but they can also have a huge effect on the best Genshin Impact characters tier list and pick rates.

With the release of Genshin Impact 2.7,  many players will be wondering what the next banner will be. Whether you’re aiming to spend your Primogems on newly released characters or wish to try your luck at Genshin Impact’s banner reruns, there is always something for everyone.



What is the current Genshin Impact banner?

Oni’s Royal is the current Genshin Impact banner.

The current Genshin Impact banner was released on June 21, 2022, and features Arataki Itto, a descendant of the crimson oni, and leader and founder of the Arataki Gang. As a Geo character who wields a Claymore, Arataki specializes in dealing powerful AoE damage on the battlefield. 

Apart from Arataki Itto, the Oni’s Royal also features three different 4-star characters for you to draw. These characters are:

  • Kuki Shinobu (Electro)
  • Gorou (Ge0)
  • Chongyun (Cryo)

When does the current Genshin Impact banner end?

The Arataki Itto banner will end on July 12, 2022. This gives Travelers plenty of time to save up Primogems and spend them on his banner. Having said that, we’ll update this section should HoYoverse extend this date further. 


Current Genshin Impact weapon banner

The Epitome Invocation banner has been updated.

The current Genshin Impact weapon banner is Epitome Invocation. This banner includes the following weapon rate-ups: 

5-star weapons

  • Redhorn Stonethresher (Claymore)
  • Memory of Dust (Catalyst)

4-star weapons

  • Lithic Blade (Claymore)
  • Lion’s Roar (Sword)
  • Dragon’s Bane (Polearm)
  • Sacrificial Fragments (Catalyst)
  • The Stringless (Bow)

The current weapon banner will end on July 12, 2022 — the same date Arataki Itto’s banner will be removed from the game. 

Next Genshin Impact banner release date

The next Genshin Impact banner is scheduled to release alongside the 2.8 version update on July 13, 2022.

Kazuha banner rerun

Kazuha could be making his first banner appearance since 1.6.

A number of Genshin Impact leaks point towards a Kazuha banner rerun in 2.8, where he will be appearing in the “Acer Palmatum Chapter: Act I” story quest.

Genshin leaker Lumie has reported that Klee will feature alongside Kazaha’s rerun banner.

Additionally, images from the Phantom Realm event have also appeared online, giving Travelers an early look into what appears to be the wandering samurai’s old home.


While these leaks should be taken with a grain of salt, it certainly looks promising for those who have yet to unlock the Anemo Sword user.
