Like every year, Riot is celebrating the Lunar New year by releasing new skins. Sejuani, Tahm Kench, and Vayne will be getting the new skins.

The three champions will join the long list of champions such as Corki, Azir, Nasus, and Jinx etc.

Get the latest Video Game News at Sportskeeda.

Sejuani last received skin back in 2016. According to Zodiac, this year is the year of Pig which perfectly fits as she can be seen riding the Boar(male pig) in her splash art.

Fans have been crying out for a new Tahm kench skin for a long time since he has only 3. His last skin came back in 2016 in the form of URF Kench. He will be finally getting a new skin as Coin Emperor Tahm Kench rolls in. He seems to represent the greed or maybe fortune as he is diving into coins.

Vayne is the third champion who will be getting the Lunar themed skin. Vayne received a legendary skin back in 2017 in the form of Project Vayne. Firecracker Vayne(new skin) will also have a prestige edition which will be obtainable through prestige points. The method to earn prestige points is not clear yet but you can expect several Lunar missions which will grant you prestige points.

There have been several negative feedbacks recently regarding the prestige skins. Prestige Akali and Kai'Sa seemed fine but by constantly releasing Prestige editions skins it reduces the overall value. Whatever case may be either version of skin looks fantastic.

The skins overall definitely have a strong flavour to it. It perfectly depicts the Lunar New year theme. If you are a fan of collecting skins definitely get these as its gonna turn into legacy skins sooner or later. Each skin will cost you 1350 RP and as mentioned earlier Prestige version will cost you Prestige points.
