Yelan Genshin Impact: What We Know So Far

There have been many rumors and leaks allegedly tied to Yelan being an upcoming character for the game, but unfortunately, it doesn't appear that there is anything set in stone just yet.

One such is the case of Yelan's appearance, which many believe was sneakily revealed briefly in Genshin Impact's Moonchase Festival cutscene released months ago. At the time, the video did show two characters that fans had not recognized just yet, the latter of which has turned out to be Yun Jin.

However, in the video, the other character unaccounted for that could be assumed to be Yelan is seen wielding a Polearm, something that conflicts with other supposed leaks on the rumored character.

According to Project Celestia and Dimbreath, the weapon for Yelan is expected to be a bow of some sort.

While there remains no indication of when the character Yelan would be launching, it can be assumed that might be sooner rather than later since there's reportedly data for the character already in the game.
