There’s a new girl group in town, at least if you’re living in the world of League of Legends.
On Saturday, during the 2018 League of Legends World Championship Opening Ceremony in Incheon, South Korea, video game developer Riot Games unveiled a new virtual K-pop quartet called K/DA in what's being called a "mixed reality" performance that blended live staging and augmented reality [AR] technology.
During the opening ceremony show, Soyeon and Miyeon of K-pop girl group (G)I-dle and American singers Madison Beer and Jaira Burns performed the K/DA song “POP/STARS” alongside their League of Legends -- or LoL, as it's often called -- in-game alter egos: Kai’Sa (Burns), Akali (Soyeon), Ahri (Miyeon) and Evelynn (Beer). Via AR, K/DA's foursome were visible on jumbotrons in the stadium and on live streams as if they were actually there onstage.
