Riot Games may be adding a new "Valorant Arcade Bundle" inspired by classic arcade games.
@ValorLeaks, a prominent leaker on Twitter, has shared a video showcasing Gekko, the new Valorant agent, opening a box believed to be a teaser for upcoming skins with an arcade theme.
The potential release date for the Valorant Arcade Bundle is expected to be in conjunction with the launch of Valorant Episode 6 Act 3 on April 25th, though no official confirmation has been provided by Riot Games.

Update: Valorant Debuts Radiant Entertainment System Skin Trailer

Riot Games has released a trailer for a new skin collection called the Radiant Entertainment System which is likely the 'Arcade' bundle that has been teased by the community.

The skins in the Radiant Entertainment System are:

  • Radiant Entertainment System Melee

  • Radiant Entertainment System Ghost

  • Radiant Entertainment System Bulldog

  • Radiant Entertainment System Phantom

  • Radiant Entertainment System Operator

The bundle is also expected to be accompanied with a unique player card, gun buddy, and spray. The highly anticipated Radiant Entertainment System is set to launch on April 25th.

Although Riot Games has not officially confirmed the pricing, it is expected to retail for 7,100 Valorant points (VP).

Riot Games might be adding a new bundle to Valorant inspired by classic Arcade games, especially Nintendo titles with their iconic red-and-white aesthetic. The bundle that has been dubbed the ‘Valorant Arcade Bundle’ has been teased as the background of the latest Night Market.

A video showcasing Gekko, the new Valorant agent, opening up a dusty old box has also been shared by prominent leaker @ValorLeaks on Twitter. The video in question is believed to be a teaser for the upcoming skins in Valorant, which are speculated to have an arcade theme. According to @ValorLeaks, the skins may not actually be called "Arcade" upon their release, but instead, they could be themed around various arcade machines that are found throughout the many maps in Valorant.

For instance, one of these arcade machines that features a game called 'BAZOOKA BADGER'can be found in Brimstone’s office in the range. Additionally, there are other hints within the game, such as the level 10 player card in the battle pass, which also suggests an arcade game theme which could be a teaser of this bundle.
