The new cosmetics will fall under the same line as Battle Academia Ezreal, Jayce, Katarina, and Lux which have all been very popular skins for those four champions. Now they will be joined by five other champions, who are all picks that pop up in solo queue fairly often.
The skins will all present each champion in a completely new way, with new effects added to all abilities as well as new recall animations. In the best futuristic scholastic style, the skins will likely be mesmerizing to look at with all of their bright colors and fun new ways of presenting each champion’s ability. The recall animations will also be worth keeping an eye on, as each champion will fight small robot lasers until the recall is complete.
Here’s a look at the splash art for each new skin, showcasing each champion in their finest academic suits.
