With such a huge and established roster to work with, could there be more new characters coming soon? We'd love to see other quirky champions make the jump like Caitlyn, Gangplank or Miss Fortune.

Why is the collaboration happening?

With League of Legends having been such a huge game for so long now, why is now the perfect time for this collab to happen? Well, according to @ShiinaBR who originated the leak, the skin is coming to Fortnite as a celebration of Riot Games' new show "Arcane".

The Netflix show will explore the balance between the rich and poor within the city of Piltover. Champions like Jinx, Caitlyn, Vi and Jayce will feature. It's believed that there will be three weekly episodes starting on Saturday, 6 November.

Riot are keen on taking their League of Legends property to new spaces moving forward. We can expect to see more crossovers and unique projects like this pop up over the coming years. It's great to see after years of the League of Legends community believing that the game could do so much more to expand its horizons.
