We are now heading into Phase II of Genshin Impact 2.7. In the next phase, we’ll be introduced to a new character as well as new events. Read on to find out more about Genshin Impact 2.7 Phase II featuring Itto’s re-run.

When is Genshin Impact 2.7 Phase II launching?

Phase II will release on June 21. From June 21, the banners will be available until July 12. So when we enter this phase for Version 2.7, Travelers can finally pull for Arataki Itto. The 4-star characters joining Itto in his banner are Gorou, Chongyun, and Kuki Shinobu.

Moreover, this phase marks Kuki Shinobu’s debut in Genshin Impact. She is a 4-star Electro character which many Travelers want to pull for after it was revealed that she is also a healer. This makes her the first Electro healer character in Genshin Impact.

For Travelers undecided on who to pull for in this update, the test run event allows you to get a hands-on experience for the featured characters in the Wish banner.
