Genshin Impact Fu Hua – is this Honkai character coming to Genshin?

Is that mysterious lady in the Moonchase Festival trailer really Honkai Impact 3rd's Fu Hua? And is she coming to Genshin Impact? Here's what we know

A cutscene from the Genshin Impact Moonlight Merriment event came out a while back, and eagle-eyed fans spotted a new face – one that looks suspiciously similar to Honkai Impact 3rd‘s Fu Hua. But who exactly is she?

If she were to come to Genshin Impact, Fu Hua wouldn’t be the first Honkai Impact character to grace Mihoyo’s hit RPG. Yae Sakura from Honkai appeared as Genshin Impact’s Yae Miko, and Raiden Mei from Honkai transformed into Genshin Impact’s Raiden Shogun, just to name a few. It’s no surprise, then, that Genshin Impact’s Fu Hua, a big fan favourite from Honkai, could burst into Genshin in the future. But will this dream ever become a reality?

Is Fu Hua coming to Genshin Impact?

For quite some time, many of us thought that the mysterious lady in the Moonchase Festival trailer was actually Honkai Impact 3rd’s Fu Hua. Leakers also attached the name ‘Yelan’ to her, and skeleton code suggested that she’d be a crossbow wielder. However, we’ve since seen leaks revealing Genshin Impact Yelan to be a completely different character.

We still don’t know who the lady in the Moonchase Festival trailer is – with some fans still believing she is Genshin’s version of Fu Hua, while others think she is a young version of Madam Ping. At the moment, we’re yet to have any real answers as to whether Fu Hua is coming to Genshin, and whether she really is the one from that clip.

Who is Fu Hua in Honkai Impact?

In Honkai Impact 3rd, Fu Hua is a previous member of the Fire Moth organization in the last civilization. She’s one of the few survivors who faced off against the Final Herrscher. She later became the guardian of Shenzhou, earning the title of The Sage and devoting her life to eliminating the Houki. Fu Hua’s age is classified, but she is said to be over 50,000 years old, despite looking 17 in appearance.

And that’s all we know about Genshin Impact’s Fu Hua at the moment. We’ll be sure to update you if any further information surfaces. In the meantime, why not check out our list of the best mobile RPGs to find something new to play?
