League of Legends fans may have a new skin line that will battle it out on the top 40 charts as well as on the Summoner’s Rift. Four splash arts featuring Kai’sa, Evelynn, Ahri and Akali would leak from the Korean forum Ruliweb today. It looks like the theme for this skin line will be of a k-pop variety, considering that the upcoming World Championship will be in Korea.

In the four images above, Kai’sa, Ahri, Akali and Evelynn are posing for a possible album cover. Additionally, the color scheme and overall aesthetic of the skins resemble the Korean Pop group, BLACKPINK. This could possibly be hinting at BLACKPINK appearance at Worlds this year. They could even be singing a song as the theme for the tournament, like how Against the Current sang “Legends Never Die”.
As for the leak, it is only further confirming another leak that would drop earlier this morning. An image containing a possible in-game Kai’sa skin was shown on Reddit, and it only pushes the fact that this skin will release very soon. It would not surprise anyone if Riot confirms this news in the coming days.
For Ahri, this would be her second musically-themed skin. She would already receive a Popstar skin back in 2013, but now it looks like she is joining another group. Additionally, Kai’sa will finally be receiving a new skin since her release earlier this year. If these skins are at the same level as the original Popstar, they will have a 975 RP price point with new visual effects and a dancing recall animation. However, I would not be surprised if there was a 1350 RP skin amongst the four. In the chance that one of the skins is an epic tier, hopefully, either Kai’sa or Akali get the skin.
Also, this leak is only one of many skins that have been seen this week. Like we’ve said before, Bewitching Janna was leaked earlier today. Another skin, Dragon Tamer Heimerdinger, was revealed by Riot Games today as well. It looks like the team in charge of skins has been very busy over these past few months.

It looks like Heimerdinger will be sporting a tiny dragon upon his head at all times. Details about this skin have not been released yet, but we assume that it will be a Legendary Tier skin with an 1820 RP price tag. Possible changes to the skin could be dragons as turrets, the dragon on Heimerdinger’s head launching his W ability, Hextech Micro-Rockets. His E ability, CH-2 Electron Storm Grenade, could again be the dragon spitting up a fireball that bounces on the ground. Meanwhile, the other skins in the Dragon line, such as Dragon Master Swain, Dragon Sorceress Zyra and Dragon Trainer Lulu all have 1350 RP price tags. The only skin in the line with a 1820 RP price is Dragon Trainer Tristana.
We will need to wait and see if these will release before the League of Legends World Championships begin this coming October.
