Riot Gives Their New Champion Jinx, a Music Video

A few weeks ago Riot games revealed their next champion to be an off the wall criminal wanted by the authorities of Piltover by the name of Jinx. Rumored among the fans to be Vi's sister (though that is becoming more and more unlikely), this quirky master of mischief quickly became something of a crowd favorite for her style, jokes, and the fact that her laugh is longer and even more maniacal than that of Demacia's lady Lux.

Now I don't quite remember when Riot started giving each new champion a log in screen theme, but I have loved it ever since. My personal favorites have been Vi and Diana. Where as Diana's log in music was somber and more of a poem with music behind it, Jinx's theme goes along the lines of Vi's with a rock song belted out by a female vocalist. Jinx;s song is all about blowing up the city of Piltover, mowing down security robots and just causing havoc. But rather than just let it belt out every time you log in, Riot has seen fit to up the ante once again and give Jinx her own music video.

The video mixes cg and cartoons pretty well, where all the explosions are in a cartoon/anime style, and the smoke effect coming off of Jinx's bombs and guns follow the same style. Overall I think the video fits the character very well and am exited to see Riot maybe do this again with more of their upcoming champions bringing them to life outside the Summoner's Rift.
