Genshin Impact 2.7 Livestream: What to Expect? Banners?
As usual, the Genshin Impact 2.7 Livestream will feature voice actors explaining to the players about upcoming character banners, events, and the new content. Chasm, Kamisato Ayato, and the Irodori Festival took the main spot last time.
This time, Yelan, a mysterious five-star Hydro bow user, and Kuki Shinobu, an Electro sword ser and another member of Arataki Itto’s gang are expected to take the main spot, alongside the reportedly leaked events coming in the next version.
Both of these characters were announced as playable characters shortly before the current update.
Yelan will likely be the featured 5-star on the first Genshin Impact 2.7 banner, and Kuki Shinobu could be one of the supporting 4-star characters for the next banner. However, Uncle Y, a reliable Genshin leaker, reports that Arataki Itto will be the second featured 5-star.
That could actually make sense as he is the leader of Shinobu’s gang. Uncle Y also claims that Xiao would rerun alongside Yelan with Noelle, Barbara, and Yanfeir as the three accompanying 4-stars. The leaked Official Art for the upcoming live stream hints in the same direction.

Kazuha, which is another much-awaited character won’t be available in the next update. He is still scheduled for Genshin Impact version 2.8, according to the latest reports.
Potential Events Coming in the Next Update
Multiple events coming in Genshin Impact version 2.7 have already leaked. The most prominent one is called The Almighty Arataki Great and Glorious Drumalong Festival, which will allegedly be bigger than the ongoing Irodori Festival and the Lantern Rite celebrations.
A new chapter in the Archon Quest where Yelan will be the main character will also take place. In addition, a new story quest which will be a hangout event with Kuki Shinobu is also coming.
Heart of the Machine is another leaked event that will be a new quest for travelers to collect materials for creating toy robots after meeting a merchant from the hydro nation Fontaine.
