Japanese Content on PBE

With the Japanese server being opened in the near future, looks like the Japanese localization of the game has hit the PBE, including client & text translations, champion select quotes, and more! This will be worked on over the next several weeks on the PBE and the is currently no release date for the Japanese server.

Here's omgscuttlecrab with context on the Japanese Content on the PBE:
"Hey everyone, 
In the most recent PBE update, you probably have spotted some of the content that we’re working on for the upcoming launch of our Japan server. While we don’t have a specific date for the launch of the server just yet, we're still on track and we’re all working really hard to get everything in order to provide the best experience for Japanese players. 
A couple of notes to mention:
  • Champion VO Files for Kindred and Illaoi are not loaded yet so there are no voices for these champions.
  • New VO lines for Demon Vi have also not been loaded.
  • Various tooltips for abilities, masteries, runes and items are still being worked on and are not in their final state.
  • Text input on Mac is not supported
  • Search functionality on Mac is still being worked on so players should expect to see errors 
We’ll be adding and editing content throughout the next couple of weeks here on PBE as well so stay tuned for more information. 
Furthermore, you can check out the League of Legends Japan Facebook page HERE. 
Please note that PBE content is still a work in progress! "

Here's a few screenshots of the translated client and in-game:

  This includes champion select quotes! Here's a few examples:

New 2016 ESPORTS Summoner icons

Over 90 esports summoner icons from teams across the globe have been added at as the 2016 competitive season is right around the corner! No details on availability or pricing yet! 

!NOTE!: As you may have noticed, a few icons are missing or outdated! Riot Katana noted on reddit that:
"We had a lot of last minute changes (last minute relative to patching content into the game) to teams, particularly in LCK - any outdated icons will not be going live and will be replaced in 6.2!"
"Hey there! Since we wanted to give teams as much time as possible to lock branding, names, etc, those that are recently changed like in LCK will be getting updated icons in 6.2. These older ones won't be hitting the store :)"
She also mentioned each region should also have access to each icon:
"This time around, you'll have access to all the icons!"
