The Apex Legends Gaiden event takes heavy anime influences. Fans will notice inspiration from One Piece and Naruto. Even the official trailer has the famous Japanese animation style. Of course, all the new skins draw the same inspiration.
For instance, we’ve got Octane and Wattson getting a One Piece and Naruto skin, respectively. Revenant’s skin is obviously inspired by the classic Neon Genesis Evangelion. And, Mirage’s skin comes from My Hero Academia.
We can see the Legends with their skins in the event trailer. The trailer really makes you wish for an Apex Legends anime series.
Following the Japanese style, we’re also getting VTuber avatars. Right now, they’re only releasing three. Users can set up Bangalore, Mirage, and Octane. Naturally, the avatars have their event skins.
