Genshin Impact Huge Update 3.7 Out Today on All Platforms Adding New Character

Kirara is now available to pull!

HoYoVerse has recently released the large Genshin Impact update 3.7 today on all platforms featuring its new star.

Genshin Impact update 3.7 is over 50 GB which includes tons of new content, a new character, new events, the last new area to be added before the upcoming launch of the new region Fontaine, and more. The major addition included in this new update is the game’s trading card game, Genius Invokation TCG, which finally adds several new character cards that can be unlocked later on and a big event focused on it.

The major 4-star character Kirara will be introduced with update 3.7, which is a nekomata that transforms into a cat with a box on its head. Even though she is only a 4-star character, many fans are looking forward to “pulling” for her banner with this latest update.
