Genshin Impact 4.4 drip marketing: Cloud Retainer and Lion-dance Boy’s reveal

First, let's address the most anticipated information: according to leaks, Genshin Impact 4.4 drip marketing will feature Cloud Retainer in her human form, alongside a new character codenamed "Lion Dance Boy." 

This info comes from a new image leak on Reddit of what appears to be offline promotional material from China, showing the "Lion Dance boy," Shenhe, Ganyu, and Cloud Retainer in their new outfits.

In the image, Cloud Retainer looks the same as we saw in the trailer and cutscene of version 3.4 Lantern Rite, "Echoes of the Heart," on the other hand, Lion Dance Boy appears to have the body model of a short male character, similar to Wanderer and Heizou.

If these leaks hold true, fans can anticipate the official reveal of Genshin Impact 4.4 drip marketing of both Cloud Retainer and the Lion-dance Boy a couple of days before the release of version 4.3. 

The following examples support the assertion, which is based on historical trends: Furina and Charlotte in version 4.2 were announced two days before version 4.1, and following a similar pattern, Navia and Chevreuse were revealed two days before the release of version 4.3.

Taking these things into account, it's reasonable to conclude that Cloud Retainer and Lion-dance Boy will be unveiled on December 18, 2023, two days ahead of the scheduled release of version 4.3.

Genshin Impact 4.4 Banner and Characters

As of right now, Genshin Impact 4.4 is expected to introduce only two new playable characters

The leaks suggest that Lion-dance Boy, who wears a Pyro Vision around his waist, could be a playable Pyro Catalyst character. In contrast, version 4.4 will introduce Cloud Retainer as a new playable 5-star Anemo character. Although it appears that she lacks a Vision, credible leaks indicate that she is most likely an Anemo unit.

Apart from these new characters, thanks to Uncle SH, here is a list of every character that will likely appear on Genshin Impact 4.4 banners:

  • Cloud Retainer
  • Xiao (5-star Anemo)
  • Ganyu (5-star Cryo)
  • Shenhe (5-star Cryo)

Cloud Retainer, which is probably the only new 5-star unit in this update, is believed to be an Anemo unit that uses a catalyst. In addition, a rerun of Ganyu, Shenhe, and Xiao is anticipated in version 4.4. It would seem fitting to release the lattermost as he always makes a comeback at Lantern Rite. Moreover, we have new skins for Ganyu and Shenhe in the 4.4 update, and there's also speculation about Xingqiu potentially getting a new outfit.

While all this may seem fascinating, the exact banner order remains unconfirmed and we are yet to get a word from HoYoverse on new skins, prompting players to wait for further details.
