League of Legends adds a new champion to its roster every couple of months, and the latest was revealed just a few days ago. Before she's even been released, though, Zoe's non-default skin is already earning her legions of fans.
It hardly puts us one step closer to an official Persona 5 PC release, her 'Cyber Pop' skin really does resemble a certain Futaba Sakura who made a splash in Atlus' latest Persona RPG.
By default, Zoe is a highly mobile 'Aspect of Twilight' who looks a little like something we'd expect to see in one of those recent My Little Pony spin-offs, or a sugar-coated Disney Channel cartoon. Not that there's anything wrong with that, at least; she's an adorable fighter with a bit of an attitude and long-flowing strands of rainbow hair.
But swap over to her secondary skin, which will incur a cost, mind you, and she takes on a more modernised look. Sporting square glasses, a more natural (yet still rainbow-dyed) hairstyle, hoodie, headphones, tiered skirt with knee-high 'skull' socks and rollerblades to emphasis that top-tier mobility. She's even chewing gum and suspending her music player from her neck like the main character of Persona 3 - something I'm honestly surprised we don't see in the real world.
Achieving that nerdy girl look Futaba Sakura managed while hacking day and night in her room, the icing on the cake comes from the news that Erica Lindbeck voices this new character after, you guessed it, voicing Futaba Sakura in Persona 5. It speaks nothing of Atlus' plan (or lack of) to bring Persona 5 to PC, but it's cool to see Riot Games take such a liking to her.
