A new teaser for Apex Legends includes some cheeky anime and manga references. The newest teaser included a statue of a Valkyrie, which many players believed meant Valk, a legend teased all the way back in Season 2, would be debuting in Season 9. But the statue wasn't the only hint, as some eagle eyed fans were able to spot even more supporting evidence of Valk's arrival.

Japan has a strong relationship with Apex Legends, as the game is one of the most popular over there. And given Valk is meant to be Japanese, it's likely that game director Chad Grenier was referring to her when he claimed that the Season 9 agent would appeal to their Japanese fanbase. The fact that many series of manga can be spotted on the shelves from the teaser is just icing on the cake. Players were able to find three manga series on the bookshelves, Death Note, Land of the Lustrous, and last but not least, the super popular My Hero Academia.

It's unknow how much the teaser will play into Valk's character, but regardless a fun tidbit for fans of anime and manga.
