Upon the introduction of Arataki Itto and his gang in Genshin Impact Version 2.3\’s later phase, rumors and speculation started to circulate about the Arataki gang\’s deputy, Kuki Shinobu, with rumored leaks beginning to hint at a Genshin Impact 2.5 release. Information concerning upcoming updates in Genshin Impact is regularly leaked by insiders and discovered by dataminers, including specifics about Kuki Shinobu and the 2.5 update in general. Here\’s everything the rumored leaks have revealed about Kuki Shinobu thus far.
While the release of Genshin Impact Version 2.4 is imminent as version 2.3 approaches its end, dataminers are already sharing features that might be added in the 2.5 update, including details about upcoming characters such as Yae Miko and Kamisato Ayato. Most recent leaks claim that Kuki Shinobu, a member of the Arataki gang, will also appear in the 2.5 update. Although there are still several details regarding Shinobu that are unknown as of now, some fans have already expressed their thoughts and guesses about the character based on Arataki Itto\’s story quest and the current 2.5 leaks.
Genshin Impact version 2.3 has introduced fans to Arataki Itto\’s story as a half-oni and a gang leader. While Kuki Shinobu did not make an appearance in Arataki Itto\’s story quest, she was already mentioned in several character voice lines, NPCs\’ dialogue, and bulletin boards in Inazuma. Shinobu\’s debut in Genshin Impact might take a while since the 2.4 update is set to feature new characters from Liyue and the latest explorable region, Enkanomiya. While the 2.5 character Banners are still a long way off, some fans have already set their sights on Shinobu, who, like Kamisato Ayato, has a great deal of mystery surrounding her character design, Talents, and weapons.
Genshin Impact\’s Kuki Shinobu Known Facts
Genshin Impact\’s Arataki Itto described Kuki Shinobu in his voice line as an exception among other gang members since she often questions and challenges Itto\’s leadership in a way that other gang members would never do. Nonetheless, Shinobu would often help Itto get out of jail and out of every mess he would find himself in. Itto has also mentioned that he does not want to get on Shinobu\’s bad side since she has a terrifying presence when she is angry.
Aside from Arataki Itto, Kuki Shinobu was also mentioned in Sayu\’s voice line. She believes that Shinobu will disturb her sleep in the same way as Itto did since they are both members of the same gang, and as such, she refers to them as \”Birds of the Same Feather.\” According to the Hanamizaka bulletin board in Genshin Impact\’s Inazuma region, children who have been bullied or have lost items from a red-horned oni should visit Kuki Shinobu, who will do her utmost to return them. From what the current information in Genshin Impact has revealed, it seems that Kuki Shinobu is a more rational counterbalance to Arataki Itto\’s aggressive personality. Some fans are looking forward to seeing the interaction between Shinobu and Itto in a future story quest since the two characters share an interesting dynamic.
Genshin Impact Leaks: Kuki Shinobu\’s Character Design
Kuki Shinobu\’s initial speculated character design often depicts her with a child-model appearance similar to Genshin Impact characters Klee, Sayu, Diona, and Qiqi. Furthermore, Shinobu\’s rumored character design is dressed in Pyro-themed clothing that features red and maroon-colored accents. She is also depicted as having a single red horn, which is almost identical to Itto\’s. While earlier speculations concerning Kuki Shinobu\’s character design in Genshin Impact seemed to be plausible, recent leaks, as well as dataminers looking further into the 2.5 version, have provided statements contradicting these claims.
According to Twitter user SaveYourPrimos, Kuki Shinobu is 4-star character and reported to be wearing a mask. This is implied in one of Doushin Uesugi\’s dialogues where he states that Itto was dragged by a masked lady – which might be a reference to Shinobu. Shinobu\’s rumored child-model appearance is most likely due to Sayu\’s character voice line referring to her as Itto\’s \”little sidekick.\” Meanwhile, unconfirmed leaks suggest that Shinobu may have a teen-model character design like Sucrose and Yanfei in Genshin Impact. Shinobu having a red-horn in the initial speculation might be a result of confusion and assumption that the Arataki gang is exclusively composed of half-oni members like Itto since the speculated Shinobu design came out before the 2.3 Version.
Genshin Impact Leaks: Kuki Shinobu\’s Talents And Weapon
From the initial speculations, Kuki Shinobu was said to be either a Pyro or Dendro vision holder and could be a claymore wielder. However, several recent datamined information claims that Kuki Shinobu might be an Electro vision holder. As such, she could be a great support unit for Yae Miko, which was also reported to be a 5-star Electro vision holder. Also, Yae Miko and Shinobu releasing at the same time is possible since Genshin Impact also features new playable characters with the same element under the same banner, like those of Arataki Itto and Gorou.
With the addition of so many new polearm users in Genshin Impact, upcoming versions might refrain from adding another polearm character to balance the weapon types used among the playable characters. As a result, Shinobu might be anything except a polearm wielder. Dataminer Ubatcha hinted that a new claymore character would be released sometime in the 2.5 update and the character\’s features seem to indicate that it would be a support unit. Some fans assumed that Shinobu was the character thought to be the newest claymore user since she is also rumored to be a support unit for Yae Miko in 2.5.
It\’s hard to determine Shinobu\’s Talents and Attributes since leaks occasionally vary and are sometimes revealed to be incorrect. Although there is a great deal of confusion about Shinobu, additional information will be given as soon as Genshin Impact 2.5 beta runs in a few days. Genshin Impact closed beta test programs often enable dataminers to delve further into upcoming updates and share any possible content included in the final release.
Genshin Impact usually makes unexpected announcements regarding future playable characters within the course of a current update – similar to how Arataki Itto was officially revealed while the 2.2 Version is still running. If Kuki Shinobu will be formally introduced in the 2.4 Version, she might appear in the subsequent 2.5 update. Aside from that, Shinobu\’s inclusion in Genshin Impact Version 2.5 may also serve to confirm that prior claims concerning her Talents and weapon are accurate.
