Yoimiya is one of the newest bow characters in Genshin Impact that was announced today.

Information about Genshin Impact version 1.6 has been spreading fast and lots of things are coming in official by miHoYo. Yoimiya is one of the four characters announced through miHoYo's official Twitter account along with Sayu, Kamisato Ayaka, and Kaedehara Kazuya.

Genshin Impact Yoimiya Announced

Detailed information of Yoimiya has yet to be announced. Here is what we know about her so far:

  • Weapon: Bow
  • Element: Pyro
  • Nation: Inazuma
  • Affiliation: Naganohara Fireworks
  • Constellation: Carassius Auratus

Yoimiya and Amber are both Pyro characters using a bow. Because of this, some fans have been concerned that Yoimiya will be the replacement of Amber. If you have been keeping up with Genshin Impact character tiers, the fact that Amber is one of the worst characters in game will not be surprising news. Others have been thrilled, because this may mean that a usable pyro-bow character has finally appeared.

A team went through the game file of Genshin Impact last April to find information about Yoimiya. These information may not be 100% accurate, but from here we know that she will be a five star character, as well as some guesses about her skillsets as well.

Yoimiya Release Date

The exact release date for Yoimiya has not been confirmed yet. She will probably not be released within this month, because Kaedehara Kazuha has been officially announced to be joining Teyvat June 30.

From her story, we know that Yoimiya is known as the "Queen of the Summer Festivals" by the current owner of Naganohara Fireworks. From this, we may guess that she will be released sometime during this summer- because what good will her title be if she wasn't released in summer?
