CASIO has announced the latest addition to its family of G-SHOCK shock-resistant watches, teaming up with Riot Games. Riot Games is a world leader in e-sports and developer and publisher of the hit global online game, League of Legends. The two new watches are the GM-B2100LL-1A Hextech Edition and GA-110LL-1A Jinx Edition.
League of Legends is a five-on-five competitive multiplayer game from the U.S. Players control characters called “champions” as they fight to push through to their opponent’s base. The appeal of a diverse range of characters, images, music, and other content has made the game a worldwide smash hit
Launched in the U.S. in October 2009, this popular online game had attracted more than 100 million active players a month by September 2016, and today teams compete in large-scale tournaments held around the world. In this five-on-five computer game, players control characters called “champions” and compete to conquer their opponent’s base. League of Legends combines fast-paced and intense real-time strategy RTS gameplay with RPG elements, creating a heightened sense of speed. Its competitive quality has made it a name in e-sports, with professional leagues formed around the world.
The new shock-resistant GM-B2100LL-1A and GA-110LL-1A, which are based, respectively, on the full-metal GM-B2100 with octagonal bezel and the GA-110 with its distinctive three-dimensional dial, evoke the realistic game world with League of Legends details throughout, including the dial, case, and band.
GM-B2100LL-1A Inspired by Game World Technology
The design features the Hextech fusion of magic and technology from the League of Legends world. The bezel and parts of the band are treated with an aged finish for a time-worn look and feel. Blue touches on the LCD and minute hand represent the colour of the Hextech technology.
GA-110LL-1A Features Popular Jinx Character
The popular and charismatic champion, Jinx, is represented on the bezel and band with a vivid colour scheme. The band and the indicator hand on the inset dial at the 9 o’clock position recall the rocket that is Jinx’s signature weapon.
The League of Legends game logo appears liberally on these special watches, including on the case back and band.
The Australian launch of the G-SHOCK GM-B2100LL-1A and GA-110LL-1A will be this month and will be available at selected G-SHOCK local retailers and gshock.com.au. Make sure you sign up to our newsletter for all the latest features. For more CASIO and G-SHOCK features, click HERE.
