LoL: Arcane — the new League of Legends anime from Riot Games

An expansion into other media is finally happening! Riot Games announced Arcane, a new animated show set in Runeterra, during their 10th anniversary live show.

LoL: Arcane — the new League of Legends anime from Riot Games

The League of Legends community has long been clamouring for a film or series that dives more into the universe of the popular MOBA. 

Tonight, they got what they wanted — as Riot Games announced an animated series called Arcane.

Clues as to theplot are scarce. Arcane is said to involve the origins of two iconic League of Legends champions — and the strength that will separate them. 

From simply viewing the first trailer, we could assume that these two champions are Jinx and Vi, but nothing is certain for the moment.

No other information was given, meaning we don't have a release date yet. One thing is certain — we can't wait!
