Genshin Impact 2.1: Kujou Sara and Raiden Shogun will be sharing the first banner and will come out when version 2.1 update will go live. There are several NPCs that have been introduced in the version 2.0 update but they are not playable yet. Raiden Shogun, also known as Baal plays an important role in the Archon quest and was the most highly anticipated playable character in the version 2.1 update as she has already been introduced earlier in the game.
I’m SO EXCITED to announce I voice a few NPC’s in @GenshinImpact 2.0! I play Hiiragi Chisato (left), Matsuzaka (top right), Mahiru (bottom right), and a few others. Thanks to MiHoYo, @FormosaInteract and @ChrisFaiella for bringing me on! #GenshinImpact #inazuma pic.twitter.com/hCkErsYhxD

Genshin Impact also revealed the voice actors behind Raiden Shogun. Anne Yatco, one of the most popular voice actors in the industry, voiced Raiden Shogun for the English version. She has already been the voice actor for three NPCs in Genshin Impact, which includes Mahiru, Hiiragi Chisato and Matsuzaka. Miyuki Sawashiro debuted in Genshin Impact as the Japanese voice actor for Raiden Shogun.
Raiden Shogun is also one of the strongest upcoming characters in Genshin Impact. Her Elemental Skill is known as Transcendence: Baleful Light and it causes Electro damage to surrounding enemies as Raiden Shogun reveals her Euthymia. She performs the Eye of Stormy Judgment and tracks several group members for executing a coordinated assault. Her Element Burst is known as Secret Art: Musou Shinsetsu in which she summons the Musou Isshin sword which is charged by the Electro power. The Mosou Isshin increases Raiden Shogun’s resistance to disruption, hence making her invulnerable to any kind of Electro damage. Players will only be able to use this sword for a limited amount of time.Raiden Shogun’s banner which also features Kujou Sara is expected to release on September 01, 2021, as per previous launch dates.
