Tighnari’s new ENG voice will debut together with Genshin Impact‘s upcoming version 3.6. But who will be the new voice actor for Sumeru’s Genius Botanist? Now, here’s who will be voicing Tighnari once Genshin Impact’s version 3.6 debuts.

Genshin Impact: Who is the New Tighnari Voice Actor?

Tighnari will be voiced by actor and voice actor Zachary Gordon after Genshin Impact version 3.6. Gordon is known for his work as the lead character in all of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies.

This will not be his first time voicing video-game characters either, as Gordon is also the voice of Hayner in Kingdom Hearts III. You can check out one of Tighnari’s voice lines performed by Gordon below, courtesy of Reddit user ReT-Donutman07. You can also currently check out Tighnari’s new voice in the Sumeru characters section featured on the official Genshin Impact site.

Why Was The Old VA Fired?

The decision to remove Elliot Gindi from the role of Tighnari in Genshin Impact was made by HoYoverse earlier in the year, shortly after many allegations surfaced accusing the actor of both sexual harassment and misconduct.

The allegations were revealed together with a fairly comprehensive amount of evidence. Many of the victims also revealed that they were underage at the time in which they were contacted by the voice actor.

Later, after the scandal broke, Gindi confirmed the veracity of some of the allegations through a post on TwitLonger. You can check out the post in which HoYoverse revealed the removal of the voice actor from the game below:
