The first official details for Genshin’s 2.3 update have now come to light thanks to miHoYo, who, as they have done prior to the release of a new update, have announced in advance the characters that will arrive in the game, after the debut of Thoma.

Since we already took our first look at one of these, being the long-awaited "Canine Warrior", Gorou, now it’s time to show you everything we know about Arataki Itto, a powerful adventurer who’s also known for being the First and Greatest Head of the Arataki Gang from Hanamizaka.

First details about Arataki Itto in Genshin Impact

Differing from many of the adventurers prior to their release, Arataki Itto is one of the few who hasn’t been seen inside the game, however, his name has popped up many times around Inazuma being mentioned by other characters, NPCs and on bulletin boards.

That said, his story has brought a lot of attention from the nation of Eternity, as he is largely known for his one-sided rivalry with Kujou Sara, one of the only people who have defeated him, taking his Vision along the way due to the Shogun’s Vision Hunt Decree.

As miHoYo stated, Itto is “fast as the wind and mighty as thunder, being an intrepid man with Oni blood running through his veins,” something you can learn just looking at him due to the horns on his head and marks on his body, and also for his skills around martial arts.
