Genshin Impact has given us such memorable gameplay ever since it began. From the first Version (1.0) to the upcoming Version 2.7, there have many additions to the character roster, each one outperforming the last. But even so, some characters leave a stronger ripple in the tide than others. Raiden Shogun is one such character. She was first seen in Version 2.0 as part of Chapter 2, Act 2 of the Archon Quest. She was eventually released as a playable character in the next Version 2.1 Update of Genshin Impact. Ayaka had a rerun banner during the 2.5 Update, which had quite a good response back then. However, Ayaka rerun banner in the Genshin Impact 2.6 Update has finally overtaken the old rerun banner, bringing the most revenue.
Genshin Impact: Ayaka rerun overtakes the popular Raiden Shogun banner in terms of the most revenue
Raiden Shogun was subsequently rerun in a later Version banner which then went on to become one of the highest-selling Genshin banners, with players around the entire community, who are vying to get her in the gacha rolls. She is a character that would increase the attack numbers, once she’s on the team. For this very reason, players wanted multiple constellations of her.
Even though the Raiden banner whizzed past all other sales, with its immense amount of marketing and popularity, with a new region being released and with it, an Archon. There proved to be one, who could still take her on in terms of popularity. That was the fan-favorite snow crane, Ayaka.
The above Genshin Impact subreddit shows the overall sales of each banner. Ayaka is in the first position with sales amounting to $33,698,155 and Raiden Shogun comes in a close second with $33,560,155 revenue generated.
The banner, maybe, wouldn’t have done so well, if the Version 2.7 Update wasn’t delayed so much. It certainly had an advantage over other banners but Ayaka is a really useful character to have with some strong constellations as well. If we see a repeat of the Raiden banner though, the results may flip back to what they were.
