Popular Twitch streamer Lily "LilyPichu" Ki is joining the cast of Genshin Impact as the English voice actor for the upcoming character Sayu.

On July 9, miHoYo released the Genshin Impact 2.0 livestream and provided previews of the new region to come, Inazuma. Viewers got to meet several new playable Inazuman characters, including Sayu, a pint-sized ninja who wields a weapon bigger than herself. Fans were surprised to find out that her English voice actor is none other than Twitch streamer LilyPichu.

LilyPichu is known for her streams, but she's recently begun to take steps in the field of voice acting. A role in Genshin Impact is a promising opportunity for her career, and exciting for her fans that have seen her stream the popular action RPG game.

Players who are a fan of LilyPichu may want to consider adding Sayu to their collection. Sayu is a 4-star anemo claymore character described as "a pint-sized ninja attached to the Shiyuumatsu-Ban, who always seems sleep-deprived." Although miHoYo has not yet officially announced her abilities, some of them have been leaked by data miners.

According to the 2.0 livestream, Sayu will appear as a rate-up character alongside Yoimiya in the patch's second character banner. Before Sayu's banner begins, players can hope to see LilyPichu's performance in the Inazuma main story, which will arrive soon on July 21.
