A retro pixel art wallpaper for the League of Legends battleground Summoner’s Rift may contain clues pertaining to which Champions will next be fitted with arcade skins.


LoL players are speculating which character will be skinned, due to various clues located in the wallpaper.

The latest retro arcade skins to be released were Arcade Riven and Battle Boss Blitzcrank along with Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup endless runner web game.

Here’s what Riot had to say regarding the new wallpaper.

“When we think back to 80s and 90s gaming, we think secret levels, Easter eggs and fun hidden all over the place, so that’s what we wanted in an 8-bit Summoner’s Rift,” reads the post. “Scratch the surface and you’ll see adorable pixel minions traipse up and down the lanes among giant retro towers.

“Raptors, Krugs and Bramblebacks are all gloriously stylised. Even the dragon and Baron Nashor are getting in on the action. Keep an eye out for more secrets hidden around the map.”
