Upon starting up your League of Legends client today you’ll be welcomed with a brand new menu animation to replace that old Infernal Nasus one. This time we get a glimpse of Yasuo, and a brief explanation of his plight.

Yasuo’s already been pegged by the LoL community as a competent champion in either the mid-lane or the jungle. In mid he benefits from a solid escape and a brief knock-up, while in jungle he has the advantage of his high mobility and string damage.

He’s also got a champion spotlight of his very own, so watch that for more in-depth information and gameplay examples.
