Today, miHoYo, the studio behind Genshin Impact, is releasing a new trailer for the newest 5-star character, Hu Tao. After previously appearing in a teaser video a few days ago, Hu Tao’s new trailer this time features a 3D model of Hu Tao in the game, and his animation in battle.
In the official fanpage of Genshin Impact, the character Hu Tao is described as “the 77th master of Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, a young girl who runs a funeral business”. The character Hu Tao was first discovered by the dataminer and is predicted to appear in the 1.3 update. However, in the 1.3 update content stream, the character Hu Tao doesn’t appear at all, so players are starting to worry that Hu Tao won’t come in this update.
Many players estimate that Hu Tao’s absence from stream update 1.3 is due to the Lantern Rite event, which has the theme of Chinese New Year. In Chinese culture, death is a taboo subject to talk about when celebrating Chinese New Year. Therefore, Hu Tao’s announcement was pushed back to February 27, 2021 yesterday, after the Lantern Rite ended.
The special Hu Tao banner will appear at 5 pm today, March 2, 2021, along with the 4 star characters Xiangling, Chongyun, and Xingqiu.
