Which League of Legends champions will appear in Song of Nunu?

In case the title wasn’t clear, League of Legends’ beloved Nunu (and Willump) will be appearing in Song of Nunu.

However, that’s not to say more Freljord friends (or foes) will be met along the way. Only one other champion has been confirmed ⁠— Lissandra ⁠— but the likes of Udyr, Ashe, Braum, Sejuani, or Tryndamere could also make an appearance!

We’ll add to the list of League of Legends champions in Song of Nunu as they get made public.

Song of Nunu: A League of Legends story gameplay

Song of Nunu is a single-player narrative adventure focused on Nunu and his journey to find his mother, Layka. She was separated from Nunu when raiders attacked a Notai caravan in Freljord, and for years Nunu has tried to hunt her down with no luck.

As you traverse across Freljord, you’ll have to complete many puzzles. Nunu can play his flute to complete them ⁠— and Willump will even dance along if he likes the tune.

What Nunu lacks in brute power though, Willump brings in spades, climbing up mountain faces like it’s nothing to get to hard-to-reach areas.

From the trailer, it’s set to be a beautiful adventure through one of Runeterra’s harshest places, with a feel-good story to boot.
