Riot has officially revealed Crystal Rose Akali, a legendary skin exclusively for League of Legends: Wild Rift.
League of Legends: Wild Rift is the mobile adaptation of the ever-popular PC game League of Legends. Initially, it was supposed to be more inlined with the PC version. But as time went on, Wild Rift received many exclusive changes and additions, most noticeably the reworked Karma and many exclusive skins.
For patch 3.4, Riot announced many new contents coming to Wild Rift. One of the addition is a champion coming from League PC, Yone. For Yone’s launch skin, he will be receiving a Crystal Rose skin.
Crystal Rose skin line was released in 2021, initially only in the PC League of Legends. It’s a skin line where champions attend an annual festival called Crystal Rose. In this festival, champions attend to form an alliance and negotiate truces. Crystal Rose also has a spin-off skin line called Withered Rose, which was also released simultaneously and featured iconic skins such as Crystal Rose Swain, Crystal Rose Zyra, Withered Rose Talon, and Withered Rose Syndra.
Later the same year, Riot released an expansion for the Crystal Rose skin line exclusive to Wild Rift. Featuring Wild Rift exclusive skins such as Crystal Rose Ezreal, Crystal Rose Jarvan IV, Crystal Rose Lux, and Crystal Rose Sona.
With the release of Yone and his launch skin, Crystal Rose Yone, we will see the return of the Crystal Rose skin line; alongside a new legendary skin Crystal Rose Akali.
