The Xiao banner rerun could soon be available in Genshin Impact, so find out when you can unlock the Anemo Polearm user and add him to your team comp. 

New Genshin Impact leaks have suggested the Xiao banner could return much sooner than expected, which is great news for Travelers that have yet to unlock him. Xiao is a 5-star Polearm character who uses Anemo abilities to sweep his foes off their feet, sending them hurtling into the sky and plunging them into the ground below. 

Xiao is one of the best characters in Genshin Impact, particularly for those looking for a great DPS unit with decent mobility. As an Adeptus and a member of the five foremost Yakshas, Xiao is familiar with Teyvat’s bloodthirsty enemies. 


Previously, Xiao was available in the game’s Version 2.4 update, which also saw Shenhe make her Genshin Impact debut. However, this godly character could be making his much-needed return, so here’s everything you need to know ahead of his rerelease.


Is there a Xiao banner release date in Genshin Impact?

While HoYoverse has yet to officially reveal the Xiao banner release date, that hasn’t stopped a number of leaks from appearing. In fact, renowned Genshin Impact leaker, UBatcha, has stated that Xiao could release in the 2.7 update.

This means that the 5-star Anemo user may release alongside Yelan and Kuki Shinobu – the two latest characters that will be joining Genshin Impact’s ever-growing roster.


The upcoming Xiao banner rerun will mark the third time the 5-star Anemo character has been available in the game, so if you have yet to unlock him, then you’ll want to begin saving Primogems for his return.
