The popular streamer and musician LilyPichu has expanded her talents in recent years to include voice acting, and as a result, she has now become part of Legends of Runeterra. She’s not the only one, as streamers jumping into voice acting are becoming more common as names like Valkyrae, Corpse Husband, Sykkuno and DisguisedToast find themselves caught between games and anime. However, judging by Lily’s post announcing her latest role, it looks like this might be her most exciting given her outspoken love of Riot Games.
Lily shared Legends of Runeterra on her official Twitter account, posting a post dedicated to her role as Doran’s student in the digital collectible card game Riot Games. Doran’s Novice is a two—mana card from the sixth set of additions to the game, Worldwalker, which focuses on the title region of the game and its local champions. Doran’s Apprentice, however, is not one of these new champions, but rather a regular card that can be pulled from any of the many sets of cards in the game.
The aforementioned Twitter post also hints at Lily’s excitement about the role, which is perhaps unsurprising to her audience given her history with various Riot Games. In addition to creating music, Lily’s growing popularity was supplemented by her love and time spent playing League of Legends in the mid-late 2010s. She continues to play League of Legends quite regularly with OfflineTV members and a circle of friends, and also devotes a lot of time to the popular competitive shooter Riot Valorant.
Given Lily’s upward trajectory over the past few years, many in her audience claim it was only a matter of time before she found her way into Riot Games. By this point, she had already had the opportunity to show her voice acting talents in several games and anime, and her role as Sayu in Genshin Impact may have been her biggest gaming role overall, given that Sayu is one of the many playable characters in the game.
It’s also the latest milestone for Lilypichu in what has already been a very successful year for the longtime musician and content creator. As for the first one, last summer Lily performed live at her debut concert “Comfi Beats”, which could be seen on the Internet thanks to co-founder and OfflineTV participant William “Scarra” Lee. She also moved to YouTube, joining other streamers Valkyrae and Sykkuno on a platform that continues to invade the streaming space.
Legends of Runeterra is currently available on Android, iOS and PC.
