What is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice?
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, released at the end of March, and has frustrated players across the world with its difficult to beat levels and bosses – in the same vein as developer FromSoftware’s previous releases, Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series.
Now, a creative League of Legends fan has created an innovative concept that would marry the two titles in the form of a new look for Yasuo.
Posted to the League of Legends subreddit by user ‘halfzzy’, the concept shows Yasuo getting a huge makeover, looking just like Sekiro’s main character Wolf.
In the concept, Yasuo’s new look would consist of a similar colored pull-over to Wolf, while he would also mimic Wolf’s ponytail hairstyle, but keep his own long lengthy and bushy hair. The hero would also get a recolor of his Katana, adding a red and black tint and some extra detail to the handle.
While some fans appreciated the unique idea, others couldn’t help themselves when it came to making jokes about the irony of Yasuo and dying twice.
“Die twice is an understatement,” quipped one user, referring to how weak a hero Yasou currently is. Another joked: “Sekiro dies 10 times before 5 minutes.”
Does Riot Games add fan concepts to League of Legends?
Riot Games aren’t ones to waste any time when it comes to giving their classic champions a facelift and a lick of paint to show them off in a new light.
However, they usually release skin styles of their own ideas, rather than taking inspiration elsewhere. While fans are passionate about creating their own iterations of designs that look worthy enough to spend some cold har Riot Points on, adding fan-created designs can be difficult for a number of reasons.
Having a crossover would also require permission and an agreement between Riot and FromSoftware, which is pretty unlikely.
