We have some new Genshin Impact leaks from 2.2, seeing pre-installation is here and has been data mined, most notably revealing new “About” voice lines referencing Shenhe and Yun Jin for the first time, confirming once and for all the two waifus will be playable in the future.
In Genshin Impact, the already playable characters often have voiced lines on their profile page regarding unreleased or unrevealed characters. This is one of the major official hints showing who will be released next. It’s how we know about characters such as Varka for example. Or how we knew about Arataki Itto before the leaks and his official reveal.
Shenhe and Yun Jin were among the first characters data mined in Genshin Impact before release one year ago, but they were never officially confirmed until now. We only spotted Yun Jin for the first time ever a few days ago, during the Moonchase Festival Story Cutscene.
Genshin Impact | Story Teaser: Flavors of the World
New voice lines about Shenhe and Yun Jin revealed
The new profile voice lines to be added in Version 2.2 for Xingqiu, Ganyu, and Hu tao includes new “About Shenhe” lines. Meanwhile, “About Yun Jin” voice lines will be added for Ningguang, Keqing, and again Xingqiu. This was data mined and reported by Project Celestia on Twitter:
Note that Xiao, Ningguang, and Chongyun also have voiced lines about Shenhe, but we’ll only get to see them once Version 2.2 releases as they’re locked behind a special requirement.
These new voice lines also officially debunk the theory that Shenhe could be Cloud Retainer. They’re different people.
When is Genshin Impact 2.2 releasing with these new voice ines?
Genshin Impact Version 2.2 Into the Perilous Labyrinth of Fog lanches on October 13, and this is when these voice lines will be added to the game. The update will feature a rerun of Childe, and later on a rerun of Hu Tao, with new character Toma on her banner.
As a side note, remember that Shenhe never appeared in a story cutscene yet, and the sole screenshot of her model we have was data mined over a year ago. The featured image above is a fan-made MMD (Miku Miku Dance) screenshot using her data mined model. When Shenhe is officially revealed, it’s very likely her model will look slightly diferent.
Lastly, keep in mind this is not necessarily a sign that Shenhe and Yun Jin will release soon. Voice lines about characters like Varka, Alice, Baizhu, or Yao Yao are in the game pretty much since release and they’re still not playable.
Genshin Impact is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, iOS, and Android. A Nintendo Switch version is currently in development too. You can always ask me anything about the game on Twitter @A_iyane07.
