Sayu is an upcoming character to be added in Genshin Impact's 2.0 version update. As a cute, cuddly ninja who wields a claymore bigger than herself, she's already captured many players' attention.

Sayu has caused quite a stir in the Genshin Impact community lately due to the reveal of her English voice actor: popular Twitch streamer LilyPichu. LilyPichu has streamed Genshin Impact before, so many of her fans are eager to see her in action voicing the pint-sized ninja.

According to the Version 2.0 livestream broadcasted on Friday, Sayu will be released in the second banner of 2.0 alongside 5-star Yoimiya. This means you'll be able to pull for Sayu on Aug. 11.
