Genshin Impact Arataki Itto - Everything We Know

Looking for details about Genshin Impact Arataki Itto? This club-wielding horned leader of the Arataki gang has been a rumoured character for some time now, due to the various references made to him on bulletin boards throughout Inazuma, and even the odd furnishing description. But what do we really know about Arataki?

Well, he's got a big club, and he's also part-oni—a race of yokai who have bigger and stronger builds than regular humans. In some ways, it makes him a little like Ganyu or Yanfei, who are both part Adepti. As Arataki is also a geo-user, it's safe to say that he's likely going to be quite tanky as a character, too.

Itto is arriving as part of the Oni's Royale banner in the second part of version 2.3, after Albedo and Eula's rerun. That said, here's what we know about Arataki Itto.
