Today, Riot finally revealed the newest additions to their skin collection. Coming soon, players will be able to purchase Star Guardian Jinx (1820 RP), Star Guardian Janna (1350 RP), Star Guardian Lulu (1350 RP), and Star Guardian Poppy (1350 RP). These four skins are thematically tied to the Star Guardian Lux skin that was released last May, and people are wondering if there will be a rival group that coincides with this theme.
After reading the lore of these skins, you’ll notice quotes like “It often signals a cataclysmic battle elsewhere in the universe when multiple Star Guardians are chosen to serve at once.” So it seems to set up a story where these five “guardians” will go to battle against someone. How fitting would it be marketing-wise if these five female characters went up against five male characters who have their own theme?
This would bring on a classic trope of male vs. female, which Riot can easily market for profit. With Anime and League of Legends having a lot of crossover fans, this storyline would sell amazingly.
What are some other new skins you would like to see and do you agree that they should make rival skins for this theme? Let us know in the comments below or by tweeting us @GAMURScom.
