Apex Legends has no shortage of new and exciting events for us. The Apex Legends Anime Event is the newest one and we will discuss its release date and leaks in this article.
I. Apex Legends Anime Event | Release date, Reward Leaks, and more
Data miners and leakers have discovered information about this season’s thematic event, which is allegedly anime-themed and will offer cosmetics and another Prestige Skin.
This anime event is named “Gaiden” or “Hero Anime” thematic event.
1. Apex Legends Anime Event Release Date:
Although Respawn hasn’t yet provided us with an official release date, data miners and leakers claim that the Apex Legends Gaiden Thematic Event could start on July 19 and last until August 1 (i.e after the Awakened Collection Event is over)
Full Apex Legends Gaiden Thematic Event store was leaked by AG420 in the ApexUncovered subreddit, which is a popular forum among apex players.
2. Leaked Legends Skins and Weapons Skins:
Of Course, the new leaked skins seem to draw inspiration from well-known Anime. Here are some of the Legends who got the new Hero Anime skins according to leaks
- Octane – One Piece skin
- Wattson – Naruto skin
- Mirage – My Hero Academia skin
- Revenant – Evangelion
- Crypto – Dragon Ball Z
- Bloodhound – Tokyo Ghoul
- Bangalore – Sailor Moon
- Seer – Heart Stopper
Octane’s clothing is a unique and unorthodox take on the One Piece style. Fans of the show and the game have so far responded with the most positive feedback to it.
Crypto is going to be Super Saiyan from Dragon Ball Z, another very popular one. Wattson also receives a brand-new legendary skin that is reminiscent of a variety of Naruto designs
Also, some weapon skins spotted in the leaks are Legendary skins for Flatline, Wingman, Charge Rifle, and EVA-8.
3. Prestige Skin:
Along with new anime skins for Legends and weapons, the Gaiden Thematic Event will also feature a new Prestige Skin.
In Season 13, Bangalore will receive the Apex Commander Prestige Skin. The skin looks inspired by the pilot costume of the original Titanfall video game. Further, the Bangalore skin will be in Mythic Tier and will come in three variations that players can develop by completing challenges.
However, to unlock this skin, players must obtain all the cosmetic items for the event and complete the Gaiden-themed event collection. This is similar to how players get heirlooms from collection events.
II. Conclusion and the Cost of Buying the Anime Event Packs:
The event will bring awesome-looking cosmetics to the game which are worth grinding missions for, but if you have no time to complete those and want to get all of the items as quickly as possible then you would be able to buy them. Based on prior thematic event packs, each event pack will cost about 400 Apex coins, or about $4.
So, that was it about the Apex Legends Anime Event.
