Genshin Impact Banner: Kokomi abilities, Genshin 2.2 launch date

© MIHOYO Genshin Impact Kokomi Banner news

We’re just hours away from the new Genshin Impact Banner from starting across PS4, PS5, PC and Mobile platforms. Plenty of new content is being planned, along with a tie-in to the game’s first-anniversary event.

Genshin Impact has proven very popular with gamers since it first launched last year, and a lot of its continuing success is down to its regular content updates.

The next of these is arriving this week, providing a new Genshin Impact event Banner and character to unlock.

The good news is that this week’s Kokomi Banner – Drifting Luminescence event – comes complete with a new unlockable five-star teammate, meaning there will be a lot of interest in when it starts and how long it lasts.

This will also coincide with the game’s first anniversary, with plenty of tie-in rewards being planned.

Many of these are being planned for after the next Banner is released, some of which will be kicking off close to the end of the current month.

However, most fans will be focused on the upcoming Kokomi Banner and how best to unlock the new character.

Kokomi brings new abilities to the game with her usual attack offering multiple strikes dealing hydro damage and taking the form of a fish.

Meanwhile, her charged attack consumes stamina to deal hydro damage and offers a short casting period.

Kokomi’s plunging attack will damage all enemies in her patch and area of effect hydro damage.


Developers Mihoyo has confirmed that the Genshin Impact Kokomi Banner has a scheduled release date for Tuesday, September 21.

This is expected to be one of the last banners before the release of Genshin 2.2 and includes a new five-star character, Kokomi.

PS4, PC and Mobile gamers should get access to the event at the same time, alongside the next-gen PlayStation 5 console.

For those wanting to drop in straight away, the Genshin Impact Kokomi Banner release time has been scheduled for 5pm BST in the UK, and 3pm PDT in North America, on September 21.

A message from developers Mihoyo explains: “During this event wish, the event-exclusive 5-star character Pearl of Wisdom Sangonomiya Kokomi (Hydro) will receive a huge drop-rate boost!

“During this event wish, the 4-star characters Thorny Benevolence Rosaria (Cryo), Uncrowned Lord of the Ocean Beidou (Electro), and Juvenile Galant Xingqiu (Hydro) will receive a huge drop-rate boost.

“Of the above characters, the event-exclusive character will not be available in the standard wish Wanderlust Invocation.

“The Test Run trial event will be open during this event wish. Travelers may use fixed lineups containing the selected trial characters to enter specific stages and test them out. Travelers that complete the challenges will receive the corresponding rewards.”

There will also be a new story quest to play through and fresh five-star weapons to unlock as part of the ongoing event.

As mentioned above, this will be one of the last major events held before Genshin Impact 2.2 is released.

Developers Mihoyo has not provided an exact date for when they will be launching the next update, but it appears it will be happening around October 12, 2021.

Gamers are expecting a flurry of leaks and new information before that happens, including what new banner will be hosted after Kokomi.
