Riot Games confirms upcoming Prestige editions for fan-favorite League of Legends skins

Ramping up to the 2018 League of Legends World Championship, Riot Games have released an official ‘K/DA’ line of skins for popular femme fatales of the game – and now, it seems like the entire lineup will don a prestigious look.

League of Legends rocked its fan base when it announced the K/DA skins while releasing an original song and video to match. The following months saw Kai’sa and Akali getting Prestigious Editions of their pop sensation looks, and it seems like the rest of the group will, too.

In a Twitter reply, Riot Games Stephen ‘Mortdog’ Mortimer confirmed that the company is working on Prestige skins for Ahri and Evelynn, rounding out the remainder of the K/DA band.

Fans were incredibly receptive to the Prestige Edition for Kai’sa, which gave the character’s model an enticing alternative to one of the more popular K-Pop skins.

Akali’s Prestige Edition came soon after – although wasn’t as diverse as the original K/DA skin. However, fans still applauded the remake, as it did enough to distinguish itself from her base edition.

Riot has since released a Prestige skin for Aatrox, which was heavily criticized for being nothing more than a “gold chroma” for the Darkin Blade’s Blood Moon skin it took after. Matters were not quelled when Vayne’s Firecracker Prestige Edition was announced, as it looked to follow the trend that Aatrox started.

With the added fuel to the fire that Prestige Points garnered for the company, the announcement of completing the successful line of skins’ Prestige Editions could be a welcomed change of pace for all parties.

No release date or window came with the announcement, but Riot might look to oblige soon to reel back some of their outspoken audience.
