A Genshin Impact chart shows how well the ongoing Neuvillette and Hu Tao double banner performed when it comes to revenue. This Limited Character Banner arrived a couple of days ago, and it features only one new character, the five-star Hydro catalyst user Neuvillette.
Genshin Impact players who want to add Hu Tao and Neuvillette to their roster have approximately two more weeks to do so since their banner is scheduled to expire around October 17. The recent introduction of the Fontaine nation has brought many notable characters whose storylines can be explored in the new Archon and Story Quests.

A chart on the popular GenshinLab website has revealed more information about how many sales the current double banner accumulated on its first day. According to the chart, the Neuvillette and Hu Tao double banner has attracted over $3 million on its first day and it should be noted that the overall numbers could be much higher since this data only represents iOS devices on the Chinese server. Neuvillette has been one of the most anticipated characters in the game since he was featured in many of Fontaine’s promotional videos. He was even mentioned back in Sumeru’s story arc by the Dendro Archon Nahida who referred to him as the Chief Justice of Fontaine. Even before he joined the playable roster, Neuvillette demonstrated his power in one of the cutscenes in which he managed to beat the 11th Harbinger Tartaglia with a single blow.
The most recent storyline has confirmed that Neuvillette is the human form of the Dragon of Water, one of the Seven Sovereigns. These creatures are known as the seven most powerful elemental dragons in the world of Teyvat who ruled the old world before the Primordial One arrived. This could mean that Neuvillette is even stronger than the Hydro Archon Furina who is yet to reveal his true power in the game
When it comes to Neuvillette’s strengths on the field, he is considered one of the most fun characters to use thanks to his unique Charged Attack which allows players to fire an extremely powerful Hydro beam. Neuvillette also benefits from having multiple different elements in his team composition since one of his Passive Talents grants buffs depending on how many elemental reactions he can trigger.
Hu Tao is another five-star DPS unit who’s still considered an S-tier character in Genshin Impact despite being released back in early 2021. The two characters have a similar playstyle as players need to constantly keep track of their HP.
Genshin Impact is now available on Mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
