The newest champion that’s arriving to LoL is Yone, the brother to the infamous master of wind and sword, Yasuo.
A jaw-dropping animated trailer
Riot Games need to produce an animated movie or a series with the team that did this trailer. Vibrant and wavy colors, fluid animations, stunning sound design. It was like I was watching a topnotch anime trailer and not a trailer for a MOBA champion. It’s all centered around the latest addition to LoL, and that is Yune, who’s the brother of Yasuo. He is obviously dead, and his soul is being guided through the afterlife which is full of jaw-dropping scenery.
A visual snack that I have already watched 5 or 6 times already. And that’s before we even get to a brief, but an insanely intense fight between Yone and a demon. I don’t know if it’s a manifestation of his rage, but for some reason, I think it’s a Darkin. Darkin are a race of bloodthirsty warriors that are impossibly strong. Aatrox is one of them, and another one is contained within Kayn’s weapon.
The trailer tells a short, but powerful story
A 3-minute animated trailer. You wouldn’t expect much from it, but it actually tells us a lot about Yone. His soul was being guided by a spirit fox of some kind to heaven or something similar. However, then Yone got pulled back by his past, where his guilt lies. This place showed him all the souls that his brother, Yasuo, killed. These souls were represented by stones, and the final one was him. Yone then gives in to his rage, and then the demon emerges. I won’t spoil the fight, so if you haven’t seen it, you can check it out below:
I’m just curious if Yone is going to be as cancerous to play against as his brother. If the trailer is anything to go by, then the answer is probably yes. Riot has a habit of releasing unbalanced champions that are extremely unfun to play against.
Being the latest LoL champion, Yone is shaping up to be a powerful new addition, and he’s also a capable swordsman, like Yasuo. What do you think of him? Let me know in the comments section!
