Genshin Impact Concept Swaps Yelan's Outfit With Kafka from Honkai: Star Rail

A Genshin Impact fan has created an interesting concept in which they Yelan’s outfit with Kafka from Honkai: Star Rail. It’s no secret that the designs for a lot of characters from the world of Teyvat have been inspired by the playable units from Honkai, HoYoverse’s second most popular franchise.

Popular characters like Venti, Raiden Shogun, and Yae Miko all have their respective counterparts in the Honkai world. Genshin Impact‘s known for creating various types of concepts that take some of the playable characters and implement them in different environments, from anime series to other popular franchises like Pokemon or Mario.

A Reddit user named blackenedskeleton has created an interesting fan-art in which they swap the outfits between Genshin Impact’s Yelan and Honkai’s Kafka. Fans seem to like the concept as the post reached over 900 upvotes on the game’s official subreddit with many fans claiming that both outfits perfectly resemble the personality and overall design of both characters. Kafka is an upcoming playable unit introduced in Honkai: Star Rail version 1.0 as a trial character. Similar to Yelan, this member of the Stellaron Hunters is known for always being calm, even when in combat.

Some fans have pointed out that Kafka’s outfit would also look great on another five-star character named Eula who has not made an appearance on the limited character banner in over a year. Unlike Eula, Yelan was recently part of Genshin Impact version 3.4 where she was placed alongside the troublesome Pyro user Hu Tao.

Their banner managed to break Genshin Impact’s overall revenue record, even though it featured two re-runs. Yelan is known as one of, if not the strongest Hydro user in the game who can deal tons of damage even when she’s on the field. Her sub-DPS and support potential make her a valuable asset in every team composition that needs a strong Hydro character. At the time of her release, Yelan was considered to be just a slightly stronger five-star version of Xingqiu.

However, since then she’s proven to be one of the best characters in the game with a unique kit that allows players to experiment with their playstyle and team composition. While Kafka is rumored to be released in June or July, Genshin Impact players will have to wait a couple of months for their chance to acquire Yelan, and she probably won’t be featured on a banner before Fontaine’s arrival.

Genshin Impact is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices. A Switch version is in development with no confirmed release date.
