Riot has introduced that it is bringing the Star Guardian theme again to League of Legends, which a colleague defined to me thus: “a line of skins that’s basically ‘What if LoL characters were in a Sailor Moon-style magical girl anime?’” Clearly this appeals enormously to components of LoL’s playerbase, as a result of the response to this pores and skin assortment is considerably over-the-top euphoria.

But what do I do know: specific pleasure coalesces across the concept of Star Guardian Seraphine. The information was introduced with a fetching trailer, which you’ll see above.

One has to confess, that is a hell of a fairly trailer: It was produced by Sun Creature Studio. A standard request for the Star Guardian universe is, naturally sufficient, Riot spends a few of its megabucks on making it into an precise show. Which given the wild success of Arcane (and the actual fact Riot subsequently purchased a stake within the studio), is not out of the query.

“I’m literally so excited for y’all to see what we’ve been workin on,” writes Riot idea artist Vlad Bacescu. “You have no idea.”

The finish of the trailer reveals logos for League of Legends, Wild Rift, and Legends of Runeterra. So apologies to all of the Valorant-loving weebs: not this time. The Star Guardian occasion will kick off on July 14.

Elsewhere in LoL-land, Riot’s mentioned it is seeking to “slow the pace of combat” within the game, and likewise lately introduced that each one League champions and Valorant brokers can be included with a Game Pass subscription.
