Following the trend of previous updates, HoYoverse is adding more character customization options to the action RPG. Just ahead of Version 4.8’s launch, the developer has showcased the upcoming “Teyvat Style” skins titled “Simulanka’s Blessings.”

Nilou’s Royal Elegance

Nilou’s outfit, “Breeze of Sabaa,” offers a fresh take on her signature blue attire. This princess-inspired look features additional ruffles and embellishments, along with a stunning purple Sumeru Rose adorning her waist. She also trades her horns for a graceful golden laurel crown.

As a 5-star character, Nilou’s skin will likely be purchasable directly from the in-game store. During Version 4.8, players can obtain it at a discounted price of 1,350 Genesis Crystals. After the update concludes, the price will increase to 1,680 Genesis Crystals.

Kirara’s Feline Transformation

Kirara’s “Phantom in Boots” outfit ditches her schoolgirl look for a more adventurous, rogue-like aesthetic. This playful design features thigh-high leg wraps resembling boots, reminiscent of Puss in Boots. Two tails complete the picture, while a cool hat with a bow adds a touch of feline charm.

Unlike Nilou’s skin, Kirara’s outfit can be acquired for free during Version 4.8’s “Summertime Scales and Tales” event. Participating in the event and exploring the new area will grant players both Kirara and her skin. If you miss the event, the skin will become available for purchase in the store for 1,680 Genesis Crystals after Version 4.8 ends.

New character skins are just a part of the exciting content coming in Version 4.8. With the launch of Natlan on the horizon, the next update promises to be a jam-packed update for Genshin Impact fans, offering a wealth of content to explore before the next big adventure begins.
