If there’s one thing Genshin Impact fans love, it’s a new character. Mihoyo teased Hu Tao on YouTube and the video swiftly racked up one million views in a few hours. Throw in a bit more mystery, though, and things really go up a level. Genshin Impact is no stranger to leaks, which means we often catch glimpses of upcoming characters before they’re completed – as you can likely guess, that leads to a lot of excitement and speculation in the fandom when Mihoyo actually teases something.
Genshin Impact fans are currently rather excited about a potential new pal called Kamisato Ayato. We don’t have too much to go on – nor do we know what he actually looks like – though it looks like we now know what he sounds like, and that’s enough for fans.
Mihoyo has released a character teaser (below) for an upcoming big Oni lad called Arataki Itto. He’s the head of the Araktaki gang that’s been causing some mischief for the Tenryou Commission. Once the video fades to black, though, we hear a short clip of a boy speaking to his lord who says that it’s “a pity the Tenryou Commission has arrived”.
While it’s just a tease, fans are convinced it’s Ayato, including one prominent dataminer. Needless to say, though, everyone has now forgotten about poor Itto.

If you’d like to learn more about the potential addition to Genshin Impact’s cast, you can check out our Genshin Impact Ayato guide. He’s the brother of another character called Ayaka and is pals with Thoma, who we see in Itto’s teaser video.
Through in-game voice lines from Ayaka, Thoma, and Sayu, we learn that Ayato is the head of the Kamisato Clan and is kept rather busy with governmental affairs.

Guilty Gear Strive’s Baiken Render Potentially Leaked by Californian Bakery – GamingBolt
Over a month ago, Arc System Works revealed one of the upcoming characters for their fighting game Guilty Gear Strive with Baiken. Revealed in December, Baiken was announced to be joining the roster this month. Apart from the original character trailer, not much has yet been revealed. Well, it seems that is changing, courtesy of a leak by a bakery shop’s online website, of all places.
Pointed out by the Guilty Gear subreddit, it seems Californian bakery Honey & Butter will be doing a collaboration with Guilty Gear Strive soon, and apparently, they have leaked the render for the upcoming one-handed female samurai the game is getting this month. The render shows Baiken all glammed up in the new render engine of Guilty Gear Strive, getting subtle yet very welcome changes to her character design. Check it out below.
The character render has since been taken down by Honey & Butter, so maybe the leak does seem to be accurate. For now, all we can do is wait for the official trailer from Arc System Works to drop.
Global Redmi Note 11 will have a 90 Hz AMOLED screen and dual speakers – GSMArena.com news – GSMArena.com
Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi is launching its latest mid-range family in Europe on January 26, as already officially revealed, but it looks like some members might spread out even further.
Earlier today, Xiaomi’s official account for Nepal tweeted what you can see below.

So now we have official confirmation that the Redmi Note 11 will come with a 90 Hz FHD+ AMOLED screen with a centered hole-punch for the selfie camera, and dual speakers, and it’s launching in Nepal on January 27 – the fact that it’s just one mere day after the European event can’t be a coincidence.
So we’re assuming the European Redmi Note 11 might have the same specs. The Chinese Redmi Note 11 opts for an LCD screen, not AMOLED, and since that difference exists, there may be even more that’s changed in the international model. Of course, there won’t just be one device unveiled this week, but an entire range – with at least a Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11S joining the ‘vanilla’ Note 11.
Thanks for the tip!
A Troll Bot Is Ruining Wordle By Forcing Innocent Players To See The Next Day's Answer – Kotaku
One of the simple joys of Wordle, in which you get six guesses to identify a five-letter word, correctly placed letters and incorrectly guessed letters highlighted Mastermind-style, is you can so simply share your results with friends without spoiling the game for them. Using emojis, it creates a version of the grid with green and yellow rectangles, showing your guesses and how many turns you took to finish. So of course a lot of people have been posting those results to Twitter.
As you can see above, I did this for the very first time today, because I was extra proud of getting a tough word after two big misses. Usually, my friends and I share our results in a little WhatsApp group. Sometimes we’re nerdy enough to try to discern each other’s first guessed words based on the pattern of results. We’re all having fun, and harming no one.
But apparently this shared enthusiasm was more than one dickwad could cope with, explaining his spoilerbot account—The Wordlinator—with, “I was sent from the future to terminate wordle bragging.” Except, because it’s a bot, it looks for no such thing. Looking through the victims, one posts his results saying, “I cheated bc I knew it was something I’d never guess.” To which the bot automatically responds, “God, stop bragging. Here, take tomorrow’s word and get on with your life: XXXXX.” (I have censored the word, having spoilt the game for myself tomorrow to write this article.)
Another person said, “Agree, hardest one yet. I had no idea the word even existed,” posting his full six turns to solve it. And again, “Guess what, tomorrow’s word is XXXXX. Keep bragging, and I’ll be back every day.”
Which is just a crappy thing to do! Sure, it’s not enormously important in the grand scheme of things, but it’s taking away five minutes of pleasure from people’s days at a point when we could do with all the fives minutes we can get.
The bot seems a bit intermittent—there appear to be blasts of replies every few hours. It was temporarily suspended after it launched five days ago, but was quickly back and is still going now, while the account’s creator brags about coverage (sorry). We’ve contacted the figure behind The Wordlinator to find out their motivations, and will let you know if they get back to us.
Obviously the Curse Of Wordle will take care of them eventually. But in the short term, you might want to block the account if you’re in the habit of posting your scores to Twitter.
