Genshin Impact skins – how to unlock the new costumes

Kit yourself out with some stunning new threads, with these Genshin Impact skins for Ningguang, Keqing, Barbara, and more

A teaser of the new Genshin Impact skins

Wondering how to get Genshin Impact skins? Mihoyo has just revealed some fresh new outfits for some fan-favourite characters. This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, given that the developers’ earlier title, Honkai Impact 3rd, has received costumes for a while now.

Though there aren’t that many Genshin Impact skins yet, the catalogue is slowly growing. Recently, we’ve seen fresh outfits drop for both Ningguang and Keqing, joining the two gorgeous beachy costumes released for Barbara and Jean. Mihoyo has also revealed that some of the Mondstadt girls will be getting alternate outfit skins, so be sure to check back, as we’ll update this guide when we have more information.

The newest skins came out in the latest Genshin Impact update  to celebrate the Lantern Rite Festival, along with two brand new characters, Genshin Impact Shenhe, and Genshin Impact Yun Jin. Check out our Genshin Impact next banner and Genshin Impact tier list to get to grips with this ever-expanding cast of colourful characters.

The new costumes are out now!

Genshin Impact Ningguang skin

To celebrate the Genshin Impact 2.4 update‘s Lantern Rite Festival, Genshin Impact’s Ningguang received this beautiful skin, called the ‘Orchid’s Evening Gown’. You can get it for free during the limited time Genshin Impact event, ‘Fleeting Colours in Flight’, by meeting all of the conditions in the quest ‘the Moon’s Comely Glow’. But, if you miss the event, it will be available in the shop at a later date for 1,680 genesis crystals.

Genshin Impact Keqing in her new skin

Genshin Impact’s Keqing is already super popular with fans, so it’s a surprise that it’s taken so long for her to get a skin. Luckily, you don’t have to wait any longer – as the Genshin Impact 2.4 update has graced us with the stunning Opulent Splendor skin. From January 5 to February 14, you’ll be able to snag this lovely outfit for a discounted price of 1,350 genesis crystals. After that, it’ll cost you 1,680 genesis crystals.

Genshin Impact Barbara skin

Genshin Impact Barbara‘s costume is called Summertime Sparkle, and has her wearing a white-and-blue sailor-style swimsuit, complete with a little cap and a rubber-duck handbag. You can purchase it in the in-game store for 1,680 genesis crystals.

Jean standing on the beach

Genshin Impact Jean skin

Genshin Impact Jean‘s costume is named Sea Breeze Dandelion. Like her sister Barbara, Jean’s skin is also beach-themed, featuring white high-waisted shorts and a sky blue blouse. Far from the formal attire the Acting Grand Master typically wears, this skin looks like a fetching casual option for Jean’s vacation days. You can purchase it in the in-game store for 1,680 genesis crystals.

Genshin Impact alternate skins for Jean, Amber, Rosaria, and Mona

Genshin Impact Alternate skins

There have been rumours floating around about a set of alternate skins for quite some time now, but Mihoyo have now confirmed that they are in the works. So far, we’ve seen initial illustrations featuring minimalistic redesigns for four Mondstadt girls, but we don’t have a confirmed release date, or how to get them yet.

That’s everything we know about the upcoming Genshin Impact skins so far. While you’re here, be sure to check out our list of the best mobile RPGs for more fun on the go.
