The recent announcement about 2.7's delay has made a lot of fans dissatisfied, with some even threatening to quit the game. MiHoYo has decided to fix this issue by giving the fans some more hints about future updates, with the reveal of the new character 'Shikanoin Heizou'. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything you need to know about Heizou, alongside other leaks for the 3.0 banner.

1. About the new character Shikanoin Heizou


Based on a reveal from credible leaker Lumie, Heizou is going to be the first Male Catalyst user. His element is clearly Anemo, as the character has an Anemo gem tied to his belt.

The previous fan design has finally been debunked.

Leaks have also revealed that Shikanoin Heizou also has the ability to jump in mid-air, just like his Anemo brother Kazuha. With Heizou being a Catalyst user, the ability to fly would give his gameplay pretty unique. The same leak also mentions that Heizou has a punching animation. This could be related to his plunging attack or something else entirely.

Other than Xiao, the rest of the Anemo characters have been supports and crowd control. Therefore, fans are expecting something different from Heizou - some even theorized that he would be a Physical Catalyst user.


He's an Inazuman detective who works for the Tenryou Commission. He was first mentioned in Kamisato Ayaka's voice-overs and by his distant elder cousin Kano Nana, and is later mentioned by other characters and on Inazuma's bulletin boards.

Not only does Heizou possess a wild imagination, but he also has a mind for meticulous logic and reasoning, as well as an extraordinary sense of intuition when it comes to solving cases. Whenever a crime occurs, Heizou brings in an out-of-the-box perspective and gets straight to the crux of the case, surpassing his peers.

2. Possible Rerun of Golden Archipelago

Ubatcha1 has revealed that the Golden Archipelago event will rerun in the upcoming July. This is going to be similar to the 1.6 run, however, a few of the islands would be different.

This is probably to spice it up for players who already experienced the first run.
