Today Riot was finally revealed the newest champion coming to the League of Legends, its called Neeko, after a short video for her released yesterday.
She’s another Vastayan, because apparently Riot loves Vastayans a lot, and she can shapeshift into other champions and use outlandish trickery to evade and outplay opponents. Personality-wise, she’s a lot like Zoe, and she have more trickery, even stopping to talk to a frog in her reveal trailer posted today.
Alongside her trailer reveal, Neeko already has her own set of lore on Universe, League’s official platform for storytelling and world building. Apparently, she’s from a tribe of people that all Vastayan’s hail from in Runeterra now, which would make her, or at least her people, incredibly ancient. To her people, shapeshifting was a form of communication, but in-game, it appears that it’s all trickery all the time. From the looks of things, she might be a difficult champion to learn how to play against, but she also looks very fun to play as.
The new champion Neeko will be available to play with the last patch of the year Patch 8.24 in two weeks from now.
