Genshin Impact 2.8 Special Program gives fans a sneak preview of all the contents of the upcoming update, including the much-anticipated Kazuha Story Quest.
The wandering samurai of Inazuma, Kaedehara Kazuha, was first released as a playable character during the 1.6 update. Although Kazuha has been a part of several previous Archon quests, he has never had his own Story Quest. Since then, fans have been patiently waiting for the arrival of a story quest focusing on Kazuha.
Kazuha is confirmed to return in Genshin Impact 2.8 event wish banner. As such, it also has been reported that the upcoming update would also finally open Kazuha’s story quest, titled “Acer Palmatum Chapter: Act 1.” Take a look at the Version 2.8 “Summer Fantasia” Trailer, which includes previews of Kazuha’s Story Quest, courtesy of Genshin Impact’s official Youtube Channel:
From the trailer, it seems that Kazuha will have some kind of business with the Tenryou Commission since they have summoned him for an important discussion. Kazuha is known to be opposed to the Raiden Shogun, and so, it will be interesting to see another interaction between Kazuha and the Raiden Shogun now that the Vision Decree Hunt issue has been resolved.
In the following scene, Kazuha is revealed to have a peculiar encounter with a violet blade that floats in the air. He remarked that when he touched it for the first time, referring to the floating blade, it seemed like he was taken to a strange dimension. The scene gives a sense that some parts of Kazuha Story Quest might take place in some Quest Domain similar to the Plane of Euthymia.
In previous Genshin Impact quests, only little pieces of Kazuha’s background and story were revealed. The vast majority of them would center on him being a member of the armed fleet in Liyue or on some of his recollections with an old friend. As such, it will be great to discover more about Kazuha and his potential roles in the storyline now that he will have his own Story Quest.
