Mihoyo has officially revealed more information about the upcoming and highly coveted Genshin Impact character Kaedehara Kazuha!
When Kaedehara Kazuha was first revealed to the public, I, along with many others, became smitten by his dazzling maple leaf motifs and carefree disposition. Mihoyo has now officially released his highly anticipated character teaser along with more information regarding his background.
Kazuha was officially confirmed to be arriving to Genshin Impact’s eclectic cast of characters at the Version 1.6 Special Program livestream on May 28, 2021. He will be the very first playable character to come to Genshin Impact who hails from the upcoming city-state of Inazuma. Inazuma will be the third explorable nation after Monstadt and Liyue and is expected to open to players in the game’s 1.7 update.
Kazuha is a wandering samurai and wanted fugitive of the city-state of Inazuma. He currently resides with the Liyue Crux Fleet, granted refuge by its captain, Beidou. It is revealed that the Kaedehara Clan was once a famous and noble clan of samurai; however, its status dwindled to just a simple title by the time Kazuha’s generation came to be. A calm individual who is highly in tune with nature, Kazuha’s gentle demeanor masks the scars he bears within from his tumultuous past.
Combatwise, Kazuha is a five-star, sword-wielding support character who possesses an Anemo vision. He has the ability to augment party damage and additionally buff fellow party members via Swirl reaction, which will boost Elemental Damage bonuses for their respective Elements. He can also perform the Midare Ranzan move, which creates a centripetal force pulling enemies together and simultaneously allows him to execute a Plunging Attack to inflict damage. His constellation is called Acer Palmatum.
Kazuha will be voiced by Mark Whitten in English and Nobunaga Shimazaki in Japanese. As the Sparkling Steps Event Wish Banner for Pyro character Klee nears the end of its run, more footage of Kazuha and information on his upcoming banner is expected to be revealed.
