A sales chart of Genshin Impact has revealed the first-day banners' revenue of Kamisato Ayaka and Shenhe. They are re-introduced in the ongoing second half of version 3.5 which also introduces a new 4-star character named Mika.

The first half marks the release of Dehya - a new 5-star unit wielding Pyro vision. While Dehya is expected to join the Standard Banner alongside Diluc, Keqing, Qiqi, etc; Ayaka and Shenhe banner will end on April 11, 2023.

While Ayaka and Shenhe banner revenue is performing quite well, we also have a surprising revelation from this chart.

Ayaka and Shenhe banner already surpasses that of Cyno and Dehya

According to the chart shared by Reddit user TimocaSamja, Shenhe and Ayaka have proven their popularity on the very first day of their rerun. They have made it to top 10 highest-selling banners. Just above them are Yelan & Xiao, Raiden Shogun & Kokomi, etc.

This achievement is foreseeable as both of these characters are S-tier units to many Genshin Impact fans. Besides, fans have noticed that Shenhe and Ayaka have surpassed the revenue of Dehya & Cyno until their third week of rerun. In comparison, the current double banner has outdone the full-time sales of its predecessor.

The reason behind this might be that many players chose to skip Cyno and Dehya in the first patch to save up for the long-awaited Shenhe. Before that, the second part of update 3.4 also featured Hu Tao and Yelan. They are indeed among the strongest and most popular characters that urged fans to spend as many Primogems to get them.

What to expect in update 3.6

In the meantime, some users commented that although update 3.5 offers some of the strongest characters in the game, they would still put aside some pocket Primogems for Genshin Impact version 3.6.

Also, leaks suggested that we may see the release of new skins for Klee, Kaeya; a new character from Inazuma, and the blonde architect who lives with Alhaitham - Kaveh.
