The visuals for the upcoming Ioninan Inkamage Hwei have been leaked.

League of Legends has over 160 champions to choose from, and every year, Riot adds even more. For 2023, Riot has announced that they will be introducing four new champions to the game.

Out of the four champions, three have already been released. These champions are the Ixtali enchanter, Milio: The Gentle Flame, the Darkin assassin, Naafiri: The Hound of a Hundred Bites, and the most recent vampire champion, Briar: The Restrained Hunger. Finally, before the closure of Season 13, Riot plans to release the upcoming champion, Hwei.

Hwei was announced earlier in the year with the moniker “Ink Mage.” Hailing from the region of Ionia, Hwei is an artist who can bring his paintings to life. He will be a Mid-Laner similar to our previous champion, Naafiri, and will be the second Mid-laner to be released this year. Other than that, Riot has not released any information about the upcoming champion.
