Mihoyo has announced the banner that will accompany update 1.6 includes both Klee and Kazuha.

What are the Genshin Impact 1.6 events?

Midsummer Island Adventure

You can now set sail on a cute little boat called Waverider and explore an archipelago in a remote area to search for Dodoland. During the event, you must engage in battle with the mysterious and powerful Maguu Kenki. This new opponent can summon phantoms to deal anemo and cryo damage, and can only be defeated in close-range combat.

When you complete these challenges, you will obtain event currency to purchase items such as the brand-new four-star catalyst Dodoco Tales.

Echoing Tales

We don’t know too much about the Echoing Tales event just yet, but we do know you can pick a brand new Genshin Impact skin for Barbara by taking part.

Will we get access to Inazuma?

During the Genshin Impact 1.6 special programme, Mihoyo showed off more about the brand new area, Inazuma. The concept art provides a glimpse of Inazuma City and even some stunning landmarks in the surrounding area.

Unfortunately, it looks like Inazuma will still be closed off during update 1.6.
