K’Sante, League’s newest champion, is now available to play

Top laners, your time has come.

KSante, the Pride of Nazumah, is now available to play on League of Legends’ servers. KSante is the 162nd champion to be released in League and the fifth of 2022.

KSante is a frontline-focused, bruiser champion that is mainly meant to be played in the top lane. As a fighter with the potential to be a damage-soaking tank, KSante is an intimidating and versatile pick in any team composition. His ultimate ability, All Out, makes for a strong displacement tool that teams looking for a bit of extra engagement power should most definitely take advantage of.

KSante hails from the Runeterran nation of Shurima. Specifically, he is from a previously unexplored city called Nazumah, and as an esteemed monster hunter, KSante is the most well-regarded defender of the city. KSante is the first Shuriman champion to be released since Akshan in 2021 and is only the second new champion from the region in the last five years.

A key component of KSantes lore is the fact that he is the first Black and openly gay champion to be released in League. Riots diversity and inclusion team went to great lengths to ensure the champion represented the lived experiences of real, marginalized groups, and KSante could resonate with people who dont often see themselves represented in League champions. 

As is tradition for new League champions, KSante has launched with one skin, Empyrean KSante. A prestige version of the skin, which was designed by rapper and pop star Lil Nas X, is also available to earn.
