According to information released during today's September 16 Special Program live, three new banners are planned for Phase One of 3.1. This features Candace, a four-star figure whose drop rate in the Twilight Arbiter and Ballad In Goblet event desires will be significantly increased. \n \nTwo five-star characters have also been revealed for Phase One: Cyno and Venti, both of whom will "enjoy increased drop rates." Meanwhile, Phase 2 will feature Nilou and Albedo, two additional five-star characters. \n \nUpdate 3.1 for Genshin Impact launches on September 28 and will transport gamers to the Sumeru desert. Regarding the update's plot, the trailer's description revealed the following: \n \nThe king who commanded the sand is now interred in it. Once robust against the sand, the walls are now being eroded by it. So now, the secret uins are prepared to receive new guests. And disclose hidden secrets from antiquity. \n \nFurthermore, to patch 3.1, HoYoverse has announced that an anime adaptation of Genshin Impact will be produced in conjunction with the Japanese animation company ufotable. Following is a concept trailer for the anime. \n \nIn the stream, they showed a plethora of character banners and unexpectedly announced a Ufotable anime series for the future. Of course, I understand why you've come. Discount vouchers! The exact three gift tickets that may be used across all streams are available here, suitable for 300x Primogems and other goodies. \n \nAnother significant development is adding a permanent collectible card game to Genshin Impact, a game similar to Hearthstone in which heroes are transformed into cards and battle against one another. All cards are supposedly obtainable through in-game play, and there will be no PvP-related gaming prizes, although who knows how this will be marketed. \n \nAn additional long-term project from Ufotable's animation studio has been announced. Currently, Ufotable is most known for its contributions to Demon Slayer, the critically acclaimed anime featuring some of the industry's most OK animation.
