Everything We Know about Genshin Impact Sayu

Genshin Impact Sayu is one of many Inazuma characters leaked ahead of their release dates.

She's an Anemo wielder with a mischievous streak and a penchant for not doing what she's supposed to.

Yoimiya and Ayaka try looking after her, but Sayu essentially does what Sayu wants.

It's possible we could see these three characters added in the same update, though the exact Sayu release date is still a bit uncertain.

Whatever the case, she's the first Anemo claymore wielder and seems as if she'll be a useful character for attack and healer builds.

Here's everything we know so far about Genshin Impact Sayu, thanks to Honey Hunter's datamining.
