Genshin Impact Reveals Arataki Itto Character Abilities In New Teaser

miHoYo, developer of Geshin Impact, has unveiled the abilities of the upcoming character Arataki Itto, along with a new teaser trailer. Arataki Itto is the latest playable 5-star character scheduled to arrive in the game during the ongoing 2.3 update. The leader of the Arataki Gang, Genshin Impact\’s Itto got a surprise character reveal on social media in October, supposedly in response to leaks that were coming out at the time.

Genshin Impact’s current 2.3 update is being well-received by players of the popular free-to-play game. The update is the first of the game’s patches to feature its new banner system. Rather than one banner featuring the new 5-star and 4-star characters for the respective update as well as another for reruns of previously released characters, the new system will add a second rerun banner that will be available alongside the first one. This means that during the 2.3 update, a total of three Genshin Impact character banners will be available. The two rerun banners will be released first while the new banner will be released later on.

Developer miHoYo revealed Arataki Itto’s abilities in a new blog post, alongside a character teaser trailer on the Genshin Impact YouTube channel. According to the post, Arataki Itto is a Geo claymore user whose damage primarily comes from his charged attacks due to his unique mechanic. He gains stacks of Superlative Superstrength from his normal attacks, elemental skill, and elemental burst. He can then perform a unique multi-hit charged attack by consuming the said stacks instead of stamina. His normal attack also has the unique trait of not immediately resetting its chain after the player sprints or uses Itto’s elemental skill, called Masatsu Zetsugi: Akaushi Burst.

Itto’s elemental skill sees him throw Ushi, described as the young akaushi bull and auxiliary member of the Genshin Impact Arataki Gang, at an opponent. The impact not only deals Geo damage but also gives Itto a stack of his Superlative Superstrength. Additionally, Ushi also remains on the field and draws the attention of enemies as well as gives Itto even more stacks whenever Ushi takes damage. Lastly, Itto’s elemental burst is called Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil and not only puts Itto into an enraged state but also summons the Oni King’s Kanabou club. While Itto is in this state, all of his attacks deal Geo damage, his attack speed is increased, he gains Superlative Superstrength stacks during the first and third strike of his combo. On the flip side, Itto also takes more damage while he’s enraged.

As for the character teaser trailer, the animated video shows Itto and the other members of the Arataki Gang pulling off a mischievous stunt by taking over the performance of a stage play, even going as far as changing the script of the narration. Unfortunately, both their enjoyment and the audience’s is cut short when the Tenryou Commission, the organization led by Genshin Impact\’s Kujou Sara, arrives to arrest Itto and his crew. The trailer gives players a glimpse into the personality of Itto and the antics he and rest of the Arataki Gang may get up to.

Arataki Itto has been a character of interest since the original leaks, and the official trailer reveal and details from miHoYo have certainly cemented him as one of the most exciting characters to look into when his banner is released. Players will just have to wait until he’s available and hope they’re able to unlock him before they run out of Primogems or Wishes, but when it comes to dealing damage, the character has the potential to end up being one of the best Geo characters in Genshin Impact.
