With Wild Rifts' America-special events well on their way, Riot Games revealed three new skins, adding on to some of the game's existing thematics.

As per the latest announcement, Wild Rift will feature a skin each for Blitzcrank, Olaf, and Ahri. The cosmetics might be familiar to League of Legends PC players, but it would be an all-new visual experience for those who have started their MOBA journey with the game's mobile version, Wild Rift.

With the addition of these skins, the featured champions will now hit the Wild Rift lanes and jungles with freshly designed costumes, weapons, and chromas. iBlitzcrank, Marauder Olaf, and Academy Ahri are going to be these champions' new tags.

Here's a first look at the new skins.
