New Genshin Impact 2.4 leaks highlight more new information on Yun Jin and Shenhe’s rarity levels and release dates.
The official Genshin Impact Twitter page recently had some posts about Yun Jin and Shenhe. Naturally, this meant that the two characters were on the horizon, with many fans wondering when they would come out. Some old Yun Jin leaks suggested that she would come out in Genshin Impact 2.4, but there was no definitive date at the time.
Now, there is new information that shines more light on these two upcoming characters. Both text and video leaks suggest that Yun Jin will be a 4-star character, and Shenhe will be a 5-star character.
New Genshin Impact 2.4 leaks: Yun Jin and Shenhe’s rarity and release dates
Assuming the above leak is true, that would mean that Shenhe and Yun Jin have a release date of January 5, 2022. Players already know that Itto’s banner takes place in the second half of Genshin Impact 2.3, which lasts from December 14, 2021, to January 5, 2022.
Thus, it would be logical for the first Genshin Impact 2.4 banner’s release date to be January 5, 2022. Another interesting aspect about this leak is that the two characters will appear alongside one another in this banner.
If this leak is true, then Shenhe is the featured 5-star character, with Yun Jin being one of the three featured 4-star characters. Currently, the other two 4-star characters are unknown.

Genshin Impact players should know that 5-star characters get a brief cutscene animation whenever they activate their Elemental Burst. By comparison, 4-star characters don’t get that special intro. Based on what players can see from the gameplay leak, Yun Jin doesn’t have that intro.
It’s not a limitation of the leaks, either. Other leaks featuring 5-star characters still have that opening cutscene when they activate their Elemental Burst. Coincidentally enough, Shenhe’s video leak for Genshin Impact 2.4 proves that.

The above video is a Genshin Impact 2.4 leak featuring Shenhe’s general gameplay. As players can see around the 1:28 mark, Shenhe has that special cutscene when activating her Elemental Burst.
Other than that, Travelers can see what Shenhe’s moveset looks like in-game. Both this tweet and the Yun Jin tweet include a streamable link. Those links include a higher quality video and will still be around if the original tweets are taken down for copyright.
