miHoYo officially revealed on Twitter new artwork and profiles for Raiden Shogun, Kujou Sara, and Sangonomiya Kokomi, confirming the three characters will be released through the gacha banners of Genshin Impact Version 2.1.

In the past, via Twitter, miHoYo introduced Kamisato Ayaka, Yoimiya and Sayu ahead of the 2.0 sneak peek Livestream. And all three characters were later confirmed on the livestream. Kamisato Ayaka’s banner is ongoing, while Yoimiya will be the second banner of 2.0.
This is part of miHoYo’s new and commendable strategy to officially reveal characters before they leak. Now that all three characters showed up on Twitter, this officially confirms the Raiden Shogun, Kujou Sara, and Sangonomiya Kokomi will be playable in 2.1.
Genshin Impact 2.1 – Release date estimates for the Raiden Shogun, Kujou Sara, Sangonomiya Kokomi
We’re talking about a release date “estimate” as we don’t know yet whether the Sangonomiya Kokomi banner or the Raiden Shogun banner will come first. Kujou Sara should be a four-star character featured in one of the two banners.
If the six-week time span between each update stays in place, Genshin Impact 2.1 will launch on September 1, 2021. Either Sangonomiya Kokomi or the Raiden Shogun will launch on September 1, and the other character will be launching three weeks later on September 25-26.

The Raiden Shogun and her weapon type
Note that no weapon type was listed on Twitter for the Raiden Shogun, and it’s still up to speculation. Personally speaking, I believe the fact that she’s seen whipping out a sword out of her own body, both in her artwork and in trailers, is bait. My bet is that this sword is linked to one of her abilities, reflected through her Elemental Skill or Burst, but is different from her Normal Weapon.
Furthermore, I’m pleased to see miHoYo now realizes the importance of showing and advertising characters ahead of release. Instead of letting leakers do the job, this is the best way to prevent the player base from relying on leaks. Looks like we’ll keep getting official character confirmations like these for each update now.
In any case, we’ll know more about the Raiden Shogun’s kit soon with the usual data mined leaks. What do you think of Inazuma so far? You can always hit me up on Twitter @A_iyane07 to share your impressions.
