3 minutes is all you need to be charmed by League of Legends' latest champions Xayah & Rakan

"Restoring the wild magic of Ionia won’t be easy when a deadly enemy lurks in the shadows." League of Legends just released a new champion teaser for their upcoming champions, Xayah and Rakan in a form of a cinematic trailer called Xayah and Rakan: Wild Magic. The video is 3 minutes long (or short), and that amount of time is more than enough to make you fall in love with the power couple.

Riot Games has been producing bad-ass cinematics for many years now, but this is the first time in a long time that a cinematic champion teaser was done for champion, or in this case, champions release. In the video, Xayah and Rakan faced off against the Master of Shadows, Zed and his army of ninjas as Zed seems to be draining the life out of the forest to generate power for the giant crystal above his head. The duo did not talk much at all in the teaser but i can assure you that they are certainly not mutes.

Xayah and Rakan were introduced in the League of Legends' PBE slightly more than one week ago and the League of Legends community love it (if you don't love it, I suggest you watch the teaser now!). This is the first time that Riot made a decision to release more than one champion simultaneously, if we exclude those that were added during the game's beta days. Another fun fact about them is that they are also the first canonical couple of League of Legends, and they can unleash their full potential in game if they are alongside each other.

Xayah and Rakan are expected to arrive several days later after patch 7.8 hits live servers. For now, just sit back, relax, read up on their story or watch some gameplay of Xayah and Rakan to get yourself prepared.
