Thankfully, we need never ponder that question, as to accompany the arrival of the new patch, a new animated trailer has arrived. But while 2016’s Burning Bright and 2017’s A New Horizon both leaned towards the anime-intro style of trailer, this year’s video, Light and Shadow, is a very different offering.
It’s a very in medias res video, beginning with Neeko scurrying around a mysterious, ruined temple. The cause of her scurrying is Xayah, who unleashes a whole load of feathers in an attempt to bring the Curious Chameleon to bear. It’s a beautifully-animated sequence, even by Riot’s recent high standards. Sadly for Neeko, there’s not much time to enjoy the scenery, as her attempts to fight back are somewhat thwarted by the arrival of Xayah’s overly amorous companion, Rakan.
