With the days approaching the end of the version, the community is now very anxious to see if Eternity can defeat Knowledge.
Genshin Impact’s newest character banner is eagerly awaited to break the game’s highest-grossing gacha banner record before ending next week. The hugely popular role-playing game from HoYoverse has seen a number of banners work extremely well recently with popular characters like the Tramp and Nahida being introduced. The long-awaited Thao Than even set a new record for gacha sales when it launched in early November. Now, with the version 3.4 update coming next week, Raiden Shogun and Kamisato Ayato are back. In the spotlight is the question of whether this duo can break Nahida’s record or not?
Raiden Shogun has been no stranger to setting sales records throughout Genshin Impact’s history with both her first banner and rerun banners almost topping the game’s sales. Lei Shen’s original banner overthrew Venti and became the best-selling banner at the time with sales of more than 33 million USD in the Chinese market alone. Her subsequent re-release alongside Sangonomiya Kokomi performed similarly well, just slightly above the record held by Raiden Shogun’s original banner. Now, the leader of Inazuma is expected to once again take the lead in terms of Genshin Impact banner sales.
GenshinLab’s updated chart shows a very close race with Raiden Shogun and Ayato being close to overtaking Nahida and Yoimiya before the end of their banner cycle. As of January 12th, Raiden Shogun and Ayato’s rerun banner boasts an impressive $33,791,706 with less than a week left. The banner’s current sales are $500,000 less than the final combined sales of Nahida and Yoimiya’s banners in November. Nahida and Yoimiya previously ended mid-November, raking in more than $34 million for the imported game. as HoYoverse.
While Raiden Shogun is consistently at the top of Genshin Impact’s sales per banner, the character is also running alongside the first rerun banner for Kamisato Ayato. Although Ayato’s initial banner didn’t garner huge numbers, his first banner with Phong Than Venti did well, earning over $20 million in China. The head owner of the Yashiro Association has also become a fan favorite both for his personality and for Ayato’s popularity among team compositions, especially for the Frost and Inductance teams. The Raiden Shogun and Ayato banner will end next week with the release of version 3.4.
