Riot Games has given an inside look at League of Legends’ next new champion, Naafiri. The champion was teased earlier this year and is on track to release at some point in 2023. Today, Riot detailed Naafiri’s playstyle in a Champion Roadmap written by lead champion producer Alexia Gao.
Traditionally, assassins are very micro-focused in League; the ability to find windows of opportunity to take down enemy champions and execute perfect kills is integral to the assassin gameplay experience. But with Naafiri, Riot is making it a goal to “lower the burden of that execution and allow much more concentration on the macro plays,” according to today’s Champion Roadmap.
