Yelan and Kuki Shinobu will feature in 2.7’s banners - Yelan will be the first, and Kuki the second. There will be an Arartaki Itto (voiced by Persona 5's Ryuji) rerun, and a Xiao rerun as well. The Arataki rerun will be in the second half of the update.

On the weapon side, Yelan’s bow, the five-star Aqua Simulacra, will headline 2.7’s Epitome Invocation (weapon banner, in plainspeak). A new four-star bow called Fading Twilight will also show up, though it’s a free weapon tied to one of the patch’s new events.

Second is another Chasm-centric event: A Muddy Bizarre Adventure. A strange mud has taken over the chasm and has caused monsters to become even stronger. Travelers must clear it out!

Rumours of Itto's musical event were correct - there will be the Almighty Arataki's Great and Glorious Drum Along Festival, a rhythm game that will gift players with a drum and some cool rewards.

Lastly, there is an event called Core of the Apparatus, where you...make robots. These robots can provide assistance around the Serenitea Pot. You'll need to collect plans and materials to make them, and can have up to four at once.

Kuki Shinobu will star in her own Hangout Event, and there’s reportedly a music event with Itto, though details on that last one are a bit scant still. On the quest side, the first part of Yelan's story quest will be available to unlock.
