Though we don’t have a lot of info on other Chiori voice actors, we do have some info on voicelines about Chiori.
Lyney About Chiori: Flattery won’t get you anywhere with her. She’ll only give those who can truly appreciate her art a second look. How does she see me, you ask? Come on now, that hurts! Not only am I a connoisseur of the arts, but honest about it too, as I am in all my dealings!
Lynette About Chiori: The costumes Lyney and I wear for performances were specially tailored by Chiori. Once, Lyney was using a small knife for a magic trick, and accidentally cut the cuff of his sleeve a bit. She scolded us nonstop… it was scary. Luckily, I can hide behind Lyney whenever we go to her shop.
Kirara About Chiori: She’s really nice to me. I often ran into her in the past when she was out researching ways to make fabrics and develop color palettes. She was always worried that I’d leave claw marks all over her beautiful textiles, but come on, why would I do that to her? She’s running a store in Fontaine now and sometimes asks me to deliver stuff to her. Hehe, she even helped me tailor the clothes I’m wearing now.
What do we know about Chiori and her release date?
Chiori’s initial tease in Kirara’s speech lines back in version 3.7 led to high anticipation, finally resulting in her appearance in version 4.3.
Chiori will be available to players in Version 4.3 as part of a flagship event alongside Ayato and Kamisato Ayaka, however her actual release date is yet unknown. Version 4.3 will also bring in Chevreuse, the captain of Fontaine’s special security and surveillance patrol, in addition to the addition of Chiori.
Speculations suggest she might wield a Geo Vision and debut as a 5-star unit in version 4.5. Also, as the owner of Chioriya Boutique, she’s predicted to play a crucial role as a potential support unit for Navia, another Geo character scheduled to debut in the same patch.
While Chiori’s official release date remains unknown, leaks hint at a potential launch in March 2024 with version 4.5.
As the beta version 4.4 draws near, players should be on the lookout for any leaks that disclose Chiori’s role in Genshin Impact.
