Genshin Impact New Character Rosaria’s Release Date, Banner, and More
Rosaria is a four-star Cryo user whose weapon of choice is a polearm. She is also a “Nun” at Mondstadt cathedral who also seems to be one of the rumored characters that were in-line to get released.
Genshin Impact Version 1.2 comes with a new seasonal event – The Chalk Prince and the Dragon that will feature Rosaria as an NPC. This was confirmed during an official Livestream event from miHoYo that was aired right after the Genshin Impact‘s version 1.2 trailer release.
Now, let us be direct – Rosaria is without a doubt a playable character in Genshin Impact. The main question that players with big brains have is – what is the role of Rosaria in “The Chalk Prince and the Dragon” event. Though for simple players like us, the main question that we have in our mind is – When can we get our Waifu Rosaria?.
Looking into the past Genshin Impact’s banners and their release pattern, we think that Rosaria will release within the life cycle of Genshin Impact’s 1.2 updates. Moreover, Rosaria will be the four-star feature character in Ganyu’s Banner.
There is also a probability that Rosaria may come with Albedo’s banner – because we did get Childe and Diona in the update 1.1 banners, later followed by Zhongli and Xinyan. We should not ignore the fact that Albedo plays a huge role in The Chalk Prince and the Dragon event and still he’s banner is the first one to release.
While we were trying to figure out Rosaria’s banner release date, we were convinced that if she comes with update 1.2 then it would definitely be Ganyu’s banner. Though both Ganyu and Rosaria being Cryo users – it seemed weird.
Still, we will be sticking with our speculated release dates for Rosaria’s banner. And, that is January 13, 2021. Also, it will be no surprise if the devs brought her in the game earlier with Albedo’s banner.
Rosaria’s release date – TBA
We will update the article if there is any official news regarding Rosaria’s banner launch date.
