Mobile Legends’ Miss Hikari Layla skin reimagines the marksman hero with a futuristic concept. Layla wears a fusion of a black frilly dress and dons a white robotic right arm and leg, similar to mecha girls in anime. Her energy cannon is now an extension of her arm, giving her even more style points as she saves the Land of Dawn from Enders.
