It is barely 12 hours since the Genshin Impact developers shared the teaser for Arataki Itto on Twitter. However, the new Geo user of Teyvat has already been adored by many. The surprise announcement also marked the end of all the alleged Itto Genshin Impact leaks with only a little peek at who he is.

The gang leader is even outdoing the famous Raiden Shogun in the engagement rage and has every player altering every premade plan for gathering the precious Primogems.

Itto Genshin Impact release

The official Twitter account of Genshin Impact recently released Itto’s information on October 11. The devs always released the characters this way prior to the new version. This means it is highly possible that Gorou and Itto will be released in Genshin Impact version 2.3!

Itto's official announcement is making fans go insane.

The game devs noted alongside Itto Genshin Impact release post,

“Arataki Itto - Hanamizaka Heroics. The First and Greatest Head of the Arataki Gang Fast as the wind and mighty as thunder, he is an intrepid man with Oni blood running through his veins.”

The Geo Vision of Arataki Itto can be seen dangling from his choker, just beneath his chin. The character also holds a huge club, which means he is highly likely a Claymore wielder.

The hype for Itto is insane

The reveal of Itto is different from other Genshin Impact characters considering how no in-depth leaks regarding this hunk did not drop in months. miHoYo has referred to his existence through many aspects in the game like voice lines, lore dumps, and NPC mentions.

The announcement of Itto Genshin Impact release is already more popular than any of us expected. Players have some special thoughts about the Hanamizaka Heroics which are not safe to read out loud at work. Folks are so eager to toss their Primogems on Itto.

On Twitter, the English account for the game has made only 2 mentions of the Oni character. However, at the time of writing, the posts have gathered over 400,000 likes and 166,000 retweets.

Itto and Gorou are likely to see their banner run in Version 2.3.

Itto is already becoming a favorite character

The playable Electro Archon, Raiden Shogun, has arguably been the most popular in Genshin Impact. But currently, her fame on Twitter cannot hold up to Itto. It is likely because we had known too much about her even before her banner while Itto remained a big myth until the surprising release.

He is no doubt already a Genshin Impact star now, although the game has recently received a nasty period of review bombs due to the controversial anniversary rewards.

Itto even has subreddits of his own now, just like any long-time fave characters like Keqing. In the fandom’s thirsty corner, they are simping for Itto’s washboard abs and even comparing him to another desirable lord, Zhongli.

Is Itto replacing Zhongli to become the "Geo daddy"?

No matter what, a team party with both Itto and Zhongli will give players a dynamite Elemental resonance. That’s why you should pull away when the character’s banner is ongoing and make room for both of these hotties.
