Star Guardian Zoe, Xayah, Rakan, and Neeko hit League of Legends

Zoe, Xayah, Rakan, and Neeko get new skins

It’s that time of year again — we’re getting a new set of anime inspired Star Guardian skins. The Star Guardians are magical girls (and a few boys) who balance school and making friends, with fighting cosmic monsters. This year, the new additions to the Star Guardian roster are Zoe, Xayah, Rakan, and Neeko.

While some of the characters look closer to Dark Star characters, that seems to be an affect applied when they use certain abilities. A high res screenshot shows what Xayah and Rakan look like when that effect isn’t active (which should be 90% of the time.)

Just because Star Guardian skins are available for testing doesn’t mean there are no surprises left in store. On Aug. 24, the official League of Legends account posted a Star Guardian teaser that shows some interesting hints.
