While we approach the arrival of Sumeru, the new nation in Genshin Impact, we've received more details about the land, enemies, and new characters from new leaks courtesy of data miners.

While there is no official information yet, data miners have begun sharing details about the inhabitants of the Dendro Nation, and while nothing is confirmed just yet, it paints an exciting picture.

With that, we have listed all the new Sumeru characters that we know of so far - and what leaks suggest about them ahead of their arrivals.

Sumeru Release Date

Sumeru is Genshin Impact's next new region, arriving with the Genshin Impact 3.0 update that will go live on August 24, 2022.

Some of these Sumeru characters will not become playable until later patches beyond the launch of the region, but we'll update with all the latest information on this as it arrives.

For now, let's jump right into all the Genshin Impact characters from Sumeru that leaks have revealed so far.

  • Raiden Shogun - Raiden Mei
  • Fischl (presence in both games)
