Genshin Impact skins – how to unlock the new costumes

Everything we know about the new Genshin Impact skins

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.

So far, we know about two Genshin Impact skins. These skins give both Barbara and Jean adorable new summer outfits that are fit for a trip down to the beach. You can pick up Jean’s outfit from the in-game shop right now, while you must complete tasks in the Echoing Tales event to claim Barbara’s.

This information came from the Genshin Impact update 1.6 livestream. If you want to learn more about upcoming features, head over to our Genshin Impact next banner and Genshin Impact Kazuha guides.

The new costumes are out now!

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.

Wondering how to unlock the Barbara skin? It will be available as a reward from an event called Echoing Tales. This means the Barbara skin is free, as long as you complete the event in question. You can find every Genshin Impact conch location with our help.

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.

So, how do you unlock the Jean skin? This one is a little more simple, head over to the in-game shop to pick the outfit for 1,350 genesis crystals.

That’s everything we know about the upcoming Genshin Impact skins, but we’re pretty sure this is just the beginning of a mechanic that’s here to stay. While you’re waiting for the update to drop, check out the best Genshin Impact Barbara build and Genshin Impact Jean build in preparation.
