MiHoYo Shows Off the Thunderous Might of the Electro Archon, Raiden Shogun, In Their Newest Demo Trailer
Greetings, Travelers. MiHoYo has just released a demo trailer showing off the upcoming five-star character, Raiden Shogun, coming to Genshin Impact in the 2.1 patch alongside Kujou Sara in the first banner. If you watch this trailer, do be warned, there are a lot of flashing lights, so if you’re photosensitive, maybe sit this one out and read along instead.
Raiden Shogun will be an Electro Polearm user with a unique twist of being able to switch to a sword during her Elemental Burst. Like Kujou Sara, she’ll be focused on support DPS. The trailer shows off her motives, role as the Electro Archon, and her abilities. Her Elemental Skill, Transcendence: Baleful Omen, deals Electro damage to nearby enemies and gives other characters a buff to their Elemental Burst’s attack based on the Burst’s cost. Her Elemental Burst, Secret Art: Musou Shinsetsu, allows her to unsheath her Musou no Hitotachi, switching her to a sword mode that regenerates Energy for other characters on the team for every sword strike. You can also view her voice lines here on miHoYo’s website.
With the Electro Archon dropping soon for the 2.1 patches, the upcoming banner is shaping up to be a real return to form for Genshin Impact. Let us know in the comments below if you’re excited for the new banner. It’ll be bringing Raiden Shogun, two new islands, and plenty of events. All of this is detailed in our 2.1 livestream coverage piece you can view here.
