League of Legends' patch cycle 11.7 has hit the PBE, and it reveals the introduction of a number of new cosmetics and visuals for seven champions.

League of Legends fans got a first glance at the new Space Groove skins for Nunu & Willump, Nasus, Rumble, Lux, Samira, Blitzcrank, and Lulu (with a Prestige Edition) in the PBE preview. Space Groove is a new kind of wacky, retro-futuristic League of Legends thematic where each of the seven champions can be seen in their unique costumes and attires.

Nunu, Rumble, and Lulu have adopted new alien-like appearances who are ready to hit the dance floor with groovy steps. Their costumes feature flashy neon colors and futuristic machine parts. Lulu will be the sole recipient of this event’s Prestige Edition skin, giving her some catchy golden shades.

But it’s not just aliens making their debut in this space-themed skin line. Blitzcrank is now a spaceship being controlled by cats, while Nasus is a robotic spacesuit being controlled by a dog. Lux and Samira look like inter-galactic pop idols, whose abilities have been completely transformed to showcase their cosmic dance powers.

According to [email protected]'s PBE preview, each of these champions will also possess their own set of chromas and summoner icons
