Out with the old, in with the new. Riot’s released a champion spotlight for Poppy 2.0, the long-awaited rework of one of League of Legends’ oldest and most outdated playable characters. She looks really neat! This probably means she’s coming into the main game in the next week or two, too.

Now who’s afraid of the big bad wolf? I am. Riot published a short story on its website last night to fill out the backstory for the new League of Legends champion Kindred, and it confirms my earlier suspicions that they’re extremely creepy. Read it here; it’s a tad long, but well worth it.

The next League of Legends champion is...a catfish? Riot just put out a CGI trailer about a hoarse-voiced monster named “The River King,” following an apparent leak on the game’s Chinese website. Neat! Also: great music.

Calling all League of Legends players: what do you think of Ekko? Cool? OP? Too many similarities to Transistor, or just enough? The time-traveling champ came out this week, and players seem divided on him. So let me know what you think! You can leave a comment, or send me an email at yannick.lejacq@kotaku.com.

Riot just put out a neat and surprisingly moving short comic that details the backstory of League of Legends’ new champion Ekko. You can read the whole thing here. Also: is anyone else getting a strong Transistor vibe from this guy?
