The launch of the next Genshin Impact major region, Fontaine, is fully underway! Anticipation is mounting within the Genshin community, as not only will Neuvillette and Wriothesley receive their first banners in Version 4.1, but credible leaks have revealed the next characters who will occupy the banners in Versions 4.2 and 4.3.

It comes as no surprise that the highly anticipated Fontaine update has propelled Genshin Impact to new heights. With its newly-introduced diving mechanic and underwater exploration, as well as expanding the lore of Teyvat, players have been in a treat! However, perhaps what excites players the most is the intriguing and diverse cast of characters that hail from Fontaine. Most of these characters made their debut in the bombshell Fontaine teaser, "Overture Teaser: The Final Feast".

To shed some light on the upcoming playable Fontaine characters, we have compiled a banner schedule for your reference, based on previous patterns and credible leaks.

Genshin Impact 4.2 banners leaked

Recently, Uncle YC unveiled a series of emojis that depict the characters slated to appear in the upcoming Genshin Impact 4.2 banners. It appears that players will have the opportunity to welcome Fontaine's infamous Archon, Furina, to their roster in the 4.2 update!

Based on Uncle YC's tweet, the Version 4.2 banners will feature Furina (5-star Hydro Sword), along with the rerun banners of the formidable Hydro DPS Ayato, reliable Dendro support Baizhu, and powerful Electro DPS Cyno.

According to recent leaks, Charlotte will finally be a playable character in Version 4.2 as a new 4-star unit!

The exact sequence of these banners has been revealed by leaker HXG. Phase one of Version 4.2 will feature Furina, Baizhu, and Charlotte. In Phase 2, Cyno and Ayato will receive their banner reruns.

Genshin Impact 4.3 banners leaked

It is highly likely that Navia (5-star Geo Claymore) will make her banner debut in Version 4.3. Genshin players can't wait to roll for Navia, not only because they fell in love with her character in the opening Acts of the Fontaine Archon Quest, but also because she will be the first Geo character to appear in the game in over 500 days.

The other 5-star characters on the Version 4.3 banners remain unknown, but Navia will most likely be the only new 5-star character, paving the way for exciting reruns.

Another new character from Fontaine, known as Chevreuse, will be introduced as a 4-star unit in Version 4.3. Among the 18 Fontaine characters slated for release, Chevreuse has yet to make an appearance in the game. She is expected to play a big role in the Version 4.3 main event.
