If you’re a League of Legends fan and like to show your love of the MOBA game with tie-in clothes and other wearable goodies, you’re in luck. Developer Riot Games has announced it’s got another League-themed collaboration on the way – an apparel collection created with the streetwear brand AAPE By A Bathing Ape. Oh, and there’s a brand-new Prestige Edition skin for one of the best League of Legends Champions inspired by the brand’s designs coming soon, too.
The AAPE By A Bathing Ape x League of Legends collection will feature several streetwear options – all unisex – designed with Riot’s flagship MOBA in mind. While full details, including a good peek, at the line won’t be revealed until September 18, we know that it’ll include “an outerwear jacket, t-shirt, pullover hoodie, cargo pant, pair of sneakers, and a hat”, as Riot explains in a press release. The collection will be available via the brand’s website, as well as a select number of stores in several countries.
As for that special in-game Champion skin, the upcoming collection brings a Prestige Edition of Yasuo’s True Damage skin, which you can check out the splash art for below. The original version – which you can see here – was introduced alongside the Worlds 2019 Championship, with Yasuo featuring in the virtual hip-hop group, True Damage.
Take a look at Yasuo’s skin below, which has just been pushed to the game’s PBE:
The Yasuo skin will be “available on September 25 to all players for the rest of 2020 for 100 in-game Prestige Points”, Riot says, while we can expect to find out more about that upcoming apparel collection in a few weeks’ time.
“We’re honored to have been able to work with Riot Games on an in-game partnership, encapsulating our designs and aesthetic permanently into the game in the form of True Damage Yasuo Prestige Edition,” an AAPE By A Bathing Ape representative says. “We hope we did players justice with an authentic and sleek design that feels good to play and see in-game.”
