Genshin Impact Teaser Trailer Introduces Gorou, the Adorable Pointy-Ear General

Developer miHoYo has released a new Genshin Impact teaser trailer introducing us to yet another new character coming soon in Version 2.3. This time, the teaser trailer gives us a look at the adorable yet dependable Gorou, one of Watatsumi Island’s Resistance squad leaders. The trailer emphasizes how Gorou is meant to support your party, rather than showing him defeating enemies alone. Furthermore, the trailer also narrates some of the key teachings he has learned throughout the years in combat against the Raiden Shogun.

“Have you heard? Rumor has it that if you rub the back of Gorou’s ears before battle, you will be guaranteed victory. It’s hard to tell if this is true, but it can’t be denied that Gorou’s pointed ears are really nice to touch.”

Genshin Impact Gorou 2


Gorou is a Bow wielding character with a Geo vision. This is a first, as there haven’t been any Bow characters with Geo Visions in the past, making Gorou our first. He will be available for players to wish for starting December 14th alongside Arataki Itto. The banner will also include a rate-up for Barbara and Xiangling. However, unlike Arataki Itto, even if you aren’t lucky enough to obtain Gorou from the aforementioned Wish, he’ll be added to the permanent “Wanderlust Invocation” pool from Version 2.4 and onwards.
