New Star Guardian skins for Ezreal, Syndra, Soraka, Ahri, and Miss Fortune announced

Riot Games will expand one of League of Legends’ most popular skin lines, the Star Guardian set, with five new champion skins for Ezreal, Syndra, Soraka, Ahri, and Miss Fortune.

The announcement came Tuesday via the official League of Legends Facebook page. It contained artwork with the original five Star Guardians — Lux, Janna, Lulu, Poppy, and Jinx — along with the five new members. With the upcoming expansion, the Star Guardian line of skins will be the largest skin group in the game.

The Star Guardian skins have been some of the game’s most celebrated and elaborate concepts. Along with new particle effects, custom recalls, and sound effects, the previous Star Guardian expansion also had a fully animated 3D music video in both English and Japanese. There was also an online quiz that players could take, which unlocked a summoner icon upon completion. The skins are heavily influenced by the designs of Japan’s magical girl genre of anime and was originally just a skin for the champion Lux.

It’s unclear when the skins will be live, or even hit the Public Beta Environment, though one can reasonably assume that the announcement indicates that the skins are nearly ready for testing. The cost for each skin is also most likely at least 1,350 Riot Points — or $10 — to match the pricing of other available skins.
