Presentation is everything, and when it comes to the new League of Legends Mecha Aatrox and Malphite splash art, Riot has successfully blown our minds. First spotted on the PBE, they'll be going live alongside their respective skins in the near future.
The artists have really embraced the whole mecha theme with the new splash, with a clear influence from Guillermo Del Toro's 2013 kaiju/giant robots movie Pacific Rim, both in style and composition. The deeply saturated colors give a more graphic, comic-book feel, and they seem to be in mid-scene, waiting in their hangars for the blast doors to open. You can even see yordles like Rumble, Heimer and a mystery silhouette tending to the controls, watching the Mecha Aatrox and Malphite roll out. Seriously, Pacific Rim.
Movie references aside, the skins (and artwork) were added to the PBE just yesterday, so we're thinking they'll go live pretty soon. Better save up that RP.
