After a recent leak today, we now know what the next skins are going to be coming to the PBE in the next week or so, then later the live client. Despite a long wait, the much-loved Arcade skins are making a return in the form of the nine-tailed fox, Ahri. The daring explorer, Ezreal. And the missile bombarding Pilot, Corki.
Though this content has been shown, it has been quickly reverted by a hotfix on the PBE, as they’re clearly still working on these skins, don’t be expecting to see them until the patch after the next. (6.17 or after.)

In addition, an Instagram video was posted by the official leagueoflegends page, showing the recall animations for each of the skins, whilst also showing one ability for each of the champions, specifically Ahri’s Orb of Deception, Ezreal’s Arcane Shift and Corki’s Gatling Gun, all updated and beautiful looking.
PERSONAL OPINION: I think these skins look super cool. Furthermore, I love the homage to gaming seen in two of the skins, with Ezreal resembling what seems to be Cloud from Final Fantasy (I may be wrong, don’t judge me on this.) and what could be a possible Galaga or Space Invaders reference for Corki. (Again, I may be wrong.) Personally, It’s a nice little touch from Riot, and I hope they do the same thing with future skins. Even if some other people may not.
