Well, it’s official – Seraphine is the latest Champion headed to League of Legends. Following oodles of recent teases, developer Riot Games has now announced the virtual pop star is joining the MOBA game’s lineup very soon, and we’ve got a whole bunch of Seraphine abilities, splash art, and other new details to delve into.
“Seraphine’s a one-of-a-kind champ,” Riot says in a Champion Insights dev post. “She’s got social media accounts, takes selfies with her cat, and is collaborating with global pop group K/DA. Except… that’s not the Seraphine we’re here to talk about.” The studio says that pop star persona you’ve seen so far isn’t the same one that’ll head to the Rift to battle it out. She’s actually a pop star from Piltover who “wants to connect with everyone around her”. She’s “sensitive, tenacious, and supportive”, the studio reveals – “and she wants you to be her biggest fan”.
This backstory will make sense to League fans aware that the multiplayer game’s region of Piltover is League’s “City of Progress” – a place where technology, and pop stars catapulting to fame thanks to their use of it, can thrive.
