Genshin Impact Costumes Guide – Leaked Skins for Jean & Barbara

Let's add costumes to the mix.

Thus far in its life, Genshin Impact has been updated with new characters, new weapons, and new artifact sets. Outside of limited time events, and other cool features like the new housing system, the game has strayed away from the typical microtransactions you’d expect. We’re, of course, talking about costumes, skins, outfits, or whatever you want to call them. We may finally be seeing the end of that, however, as Project Celestia has leaked what are allegedly upcoming skins for Jean and Barbara.

Genshin Impact Costumes & Skins

As we said, these are leaks so we can’t vouch for their accuracy in any way, shape, or form. They could just be files left in the game from before release when MiHoYo was toying around with the idea. Project Celestia claims the skins were datamined from “the latest available clients.” We’re not sure whether that means the client we all use to play the game or a beta client which is frequently where leaks of this sort come from.

Genshin Impact Costumes Release Date

According to these screenshots, summer themed costumes are coming during Patch 1.6. The current patch, 1.5, is on its first half with the Yanfei banner. Once the Eula banner goes live, we should know when Patch 1.5 comes to an end. That will give us an idea as to when we can potentially expect the costumes to be released.

How to Get Genshin Impact Costumes

There will likely be a variety of ways to get costumes in Genshin Impact. The Barbara one above is allegedly a reward from an upcoming event called Echoing Narration. It should be available for everyone. The Jean costume, however, doesn’t have a listed way to obtain it just yet. It could be coming in a different event, through the battle pass, or a straight up Genesis Crystals purchase. MiHoYo may make it available for Primogems so you don’t have to spend real world money, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it had to be purchased.

We’ll be sure to update this guide if any more leaks emerge or if an official Genshin Impact source confirms their existance. In the meantime, feel free to check out our guides on other current leaks. The next upcoming character is an Anemo Sword user named Kazuha. Our guide talks about his abilities, ascension information, and more. There’s also reportedly a character named Yae Sakura being added and many believe it to be a crossover with Honkai Impact 3rd, another MiHoYo game. And finally, here’s everything we know about Inazuma, the Electro region coming to Genshin sometime in the next few months.

As you can see, the developers have had quite a problem with leaks. Nearly everything has details emerge before the content is actually slated to be revealed to the public. It’s an ongoing war MiHoYo has had with the community, but ultimately is due to unsecured assets in beta clients which are meant to help the developers test upcoming content.
