While Wild Rift's Season 2021 is busy stacking up massive tweaks and changes, players are getting ready to step into the Lunar Parade.

According to League of Legends lore, the mortal realm draws a mischievous Lunar Beast every year in the New Year's celebrations. And each year, the corresponding Lunar God selects a squad of chosen champions to lead the beast on a merry chase and protect the city from the creature's playful rampage.

The Lunar Parade is a beloved part of the Chinese New Year's festivities. The Beast itself brings good luck once it has been lulled to rest by the squad's efforts. When a Lunar Beast is well-entertained and well-rested, it always signals a prosperous New Year.

As per the latest announcement, Wild Rift will feature six exclusive Luner Beast skins for Miss Fortune, Alistar, Annie, Darius, Jarvan Iv, and Fiora.

League of Legends lore:

"Miss Fortune is the newest member of the Lunar Beast Ox squad. Like most who rise to notoriety in the twisting, salt-encrusted labyrinth of Bilgewater, Miss Fortune has no shortage of blood on her hands. Yet, it was not always this way, for she was once known as Sarah, the beloved daughter of a renowned gun-dame who lived peacefully at her isolated island workshop."

"The leader of Ox Clan, Alistar keeps his stubborn squad in line with his reliability and gruff approval. A bit quick to anger with some squad members' bull-headedness, he's determined that nothing and no one will derail this Lunar New Year festival, or Ox Clan's plan to make it a flawless celebration."

"Darius' imposing presence and determination to lead by example cause occasional tension between him and Alistar, the actual leader of the squad. Despite how overbearing he can be, Darius is a strong and steadfast friend to his teammates and a rock for the whole Clan."

League of Legends lore:

"Fiora keeps mostly to herself, determined to reclaim her family's honor from her father's failure as a member of the last Ox Squad. She thinks the rest of the squad doesn't take their duties seriously enough, and her determination to avoid another disastrous New Year makes her seem standoffish and cold to her teammates."

#6 - Lunar Beast Jarvan Iv

League of Legends lore:

"Jarvan IV's stubborn refusal to join Ox Clan only relented to his father's stubborn insistence. Though he tries his best to shirk the celebrity status that comes with the role, Jarvan comes from a long line of philanthropists, and has found himself caught up in the thrill of bringing businesslike efficiency to the biggest community event of the year."
