Genshin Impact 2.9 Update
Genshin Impact 2.9 Update is set to be released in late August 2022, and new information has been leaked regarding Raiden Shogun becoming a weekly boss in the game.
It was originally leaked that Shogun would be returning to the game a couple of months ago, but now we have even more information relating to the character model of the boss.
Here's everything you need to know about the character model for the Raiden Shogun weekly boss that will be appearing as part of Genshin Impact 2.9 Update.
Raiden Shogun Character Model
The character model for Raiden Shogun was originally leaked by @dimbreath, but unfortunately, this account no longer exists on Twitter.
There are a few possibilities as to why the account that leaked Genshin Impact information early is no longer on social media, but I'm sure you can guess the main reason...
The leak showed how the returning boss looks in the game (just look at the article image for reference). Shogun now looks noticeably different than what players originally saw as part of Inazuma's Archon Quests.
Prior leaks for the new weekly boss also indicated that Raiden Shogun will be dropping Talent Level-Up materials for Yae Miko and Ayato, but these are not yet confirmed.
