The new visual updates for Ahri are expected to go along with the 2023 Lunar New Year skins line slated to launch early next year.
Ahri is still one of the best mid lane champions to play since Riot included them in their mid-range upgrade. With the practical tweaks of Riot Games, Nine Tails Ho Li with the ability to accumulate up to 8 uses of Phi Ho made a storm at MSI 2022.
As expected, Riot decided to give more favors to the fox when deciding to upgrade her overall image, including animations as well as Ahri’s skins.
Recently, a famous leaker about LoL content, Big Bad Bear, has determined that Ahri’s new skin will be released around version 13.1, equivalent to early 2023. Along with this skin, Big Bad Bear confirmed to include additional animation changes for the Nine-Tailed Fox that Riot previously teased.
In addition, version 13.1 will also include a line of Lunar New Year costumes to welcome the new year as always. Of course, this topic will include a lot of skins, so in the near future there will be more information about the champions who will own skins for the new year 2023.
The new ASU update for Ahri will also be the first content in Riot’s champion development roadmap in 2023. Following that will be a brand new Aurelion Sol and the next two generals who will join the Summoner’s Rift arena. Therefore, not only Big Bad Bear but also we have a basis to affirm that Ahri will participate in the upcoming 2023 Lunar New Year costume line.
Currently, League of Legends has 2 main skin themes to celebrate the Chinese New Year 2022 before that is Fireworks and Tsinghua Porcelain. Maybe Ahri will reappear in one of these two skin themes, or will be released. eyes with a completely new line of costumes. One thing that is more certain about Ahri getting a Lunar New Year skin is that 2023 will be the year of the Rabbit, according to some fan designs, they hope that Ahri will wear a rabbit mask and Wear traditional Chinese clothes to welcome the new year.
On December 6, the PBE test server will likely include Ahri’s new visual update as well as a skin for the Nine-Tailed Fox if Riot plans to release her in patch 13.1. For players who love the fox girl, you should save up to prepare to bring back Ahri’s 2023 Lunar New Year skin, which will be released early next year.
