If you are a Genshin Impact gamer who has a habit of going to bed early, you must have missed the most surprising announcement in the past few weeks from miHoYo. Specifically, yesterday – December 31, just a few hours before the switch to 2022, miHoYo announced the next character that will appear in version 2.5 is Yae Miko.
All gamers were surprised when Yae Miko was announced right before entering 2022
Immediately after this information was announced, it became an extremely hot topic on the Genshin Impact forums. Even a series of gamers from Asia to Europe have simultaneously “turned the car” and completely ignored the upcoming 2.4 version, even though it has not been officially released. So why did the appearance of Yae Miko become so hot? Let’s find out together.
First we need to know that since Genshin Impact updated to version 2.0 and opened the story of the land of Inazuma, Yae Miko appeared in the main plot. Therefore, gamers have been exposed and known about this character from a very early age. Through a series of events, missions, interesting storylines with Yae Miko, players want to own this character even more. The appearance of Yae Miko in version 2.5 promises to open up even more interesting stories about Inazuma.

Moreover, the appearance factor of Yae Miko is also the key to making this character extremely hot. Basically, Yae Miko is inspired by the extremely attractive fox girls in Eastern culture and is very familiar to gamers. Therefore, Yae Miko appears as a beautiful “waifu” that every gamer wants to own. In addition, the close connection between this character and Thunder God – Raiden Shogun also helps Yae Miko become very interested.

Another factor that we need to mention is that version 2.4 itself is not exactly an update with banners that are really attractive to “oldbie” players. We need to remember that up to 3/4 of the 5-star characters in version 2.4 have appeared in previous versions. The Xiao, Ganyu or Zhongli are all very strong in the par 0 and 1, so the player’s need to get more destiny for these characters is not too great.
In addition to Shenhe who is a new character, the remaining 3 names including Xiao, Ganyu, and Zhongli are all characters that have appeared.
Meanwhile, the appearance of Yae Miko promises to open up a new gameplay, new strength for the Lightning system when this is a character who uses 5-star magic and has a high rate of DPS. Obviously, when choosing between old characters, familiar gameplay and a new Yae Miko, most gamers are aiming for the latter. Therefore, it is understandable that players simultaneously “turn the car” when seeing Yae Miko appear.
