During the introduction of Arataki Itto and his gang in Genshin Impact In the later phase of version 2.3, rumors and speculation began to circulate about Arataki gang deputy Kuki Shinobu, with rumors of the leak starting to hint at a Genshin Impact 2.5 version. Information about upcoming updates in Genshin Impact is regularly leaked by insiders and discovered by dataminers, including details about Kuki Shinobu and Update 2.5 in general. Here’s everything the leaked rumors have revealed about Kuki Shinobu so far.
While the output of Genshin Impact Version 2.4 is imminent as version 2.3 nears its end, dataminers are already sharing features that may be added in Update 2.5, including details on upcoming characters such as Yae Miko and Kamisato Ayato. The most recent leaks claim that Kuki Shinobu, a member of the Arataki gang, will also appear in Update 2.5. While there are still several details regarding Shinobu that are unknown at this time, 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 introduced fans to the story of Arataki Itto as a demi-oni and gang leader. Although Kuki Shinobu did not make an appearance in Arataki Itto’s Story Quest, she has already been mentioned in several character lines, NPC dialogue, and Inazuma bulletin boards. Shinobu’s beginnings in Genshin Impact It might take a while as update 2.4 is expected to include 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 lot of mystery surrounding his character design, talents, and weapons.
Known Facts of Kuki Shinobu from Genshin Impact
Genshin Impact Arataki Itto described Kuki Shinobu in her vocal line as an exception among other gang members, as she often questions and challenges Itto’s leadership in a way other gang members never would. Nonetheless, Shinobu often helped Itto get out of prison and out of every mess he found himself in. Itto also mentioned that he didn’t want to be on Shinobu’s bad side as she has a terrifying presence when she is angry.
Aside from Arataki Itto, Kuki Shinobu was also mentioned in Sayu’s voice line. She thinks Shinobu is going to disturb his sleep in the same way as Itto since they are both members of the same gang, and as such, she calls them “birds of the same feather”. According to the Hanamizaka notice board by Genshin Impact In the Inazuma region, children who are bullied or have lost items from a red-horned oni should visit Kuki Shinobu, who will do everything possible to return them. From what current information in Genshin Impact revealed, it appears Kuki Shinobu is a more rational counterweight to Arataki Itto’s aggressive personality. Some fans can’t wait to see Shinobu and Itto interplay in a future story quest, as 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. Additionally, Shinobu’s rumored character design is dressed in Pyro-themed clothing that features red and brown accents. She is also depicted as having a single red horn, which is almost identical to that of Itto. While earlier speculation regarding Kuki Shinobu’s character design in Genshin Impact seemed plausible, recent leaks, as well as dataminers delving deeper into version 2.5, have provided statements contradicting these claims.
According to the Twitter user SaveYourPrimos, Kuki Shinobu is a 4 star character and is said to have worn a mask. This is implied in one of Doushin Uesugi’s dialogues where he states that Itto was dragged by a masked lady – which could be a reference to Shinobu. The rumor that Shinobu’s model child appearance is likely due to Sayu’s character voice line calling her a “little sidekick” of Itto. Meanwhile, unconfirmed leaks suggest Shinobu may have a teenage model character like Sucrose and Yanfei in Genshin Impact. Shinobu having a red horn in the initial speculation could be the result of confusion and the assumption that the Arataki gang is exclusively made up of demi-oni members like Itto since Shinobu’s speculated design came out before version 2.3.
Genshin Impact Leaks: Kuki Shinobu’s talents and weapon
Based on initial speculation, Kuki Shinobu was believed to be a Pyro or Dendro vision holder and could be a claymore wearer. However, several recent reports from data claim that Kuki Shinobu may be an Electrovision holder. As such, she could be a great support unit for Yae Miko, who is also said to be a 5 Star Electro Vision holder. In addition, the exit of Yae Miko and Shinobu 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, future versions might refrain from adding another polearm character to balance the types of weapons used among playable characters. As a result, Shinobu could be anything but a polearm wielder. Data miner Ubatcha has hinted that a new claymore character will be released as part of Update 2.5 and the character’s specs seem to indicate that it will be a support unit. Some fans speculated that Shinobu was the character considered the most recent claymore user, as she would also be a support unit for Yae Miko in 2.5.
It is difficult to determine Shinobu’s talents and attributes, as the leaks sometimes vary and sometimes turn out to be incorrect. While there is a lot of confusion about Shinobu, more information will be given as soon as Genshin Impact 2.5 beta is running in a few days. Genshin Impact Closed beta testing programs often allow dataminers to dig deeper into upcoming updates and share any possible content included in the final release.
Genshin Impact Usually makes unexpected announcements regarding future playable characters during an ongoing update – similar to how Arataki Itto was officially revealed while version 2.2 is still running. While Kuki Shinobu will be officially introduced in version 2.4, it could appear in the following update 2.5. Apart from that, the inclusion of Shinobu in Genshin Impact Version 2.5 can also be used to confirm that previous claims regarding his talents and weapon are correct.
