League Of Legends Anime ‘Arcane’ Officially Announced (VIDEO)
League of Legends is among the world’s most popular MOBAs at the moment, an achievement that’s made even more impressive as the game marks its 10th anniversary. While we know a bit about what the decade-spanning franchise has planned next, it appears the series is also bringing the well-known world of Runeterra to a new medium altogether, following up years of epic animated shorts and music videos with the announcement of an official anime series.
Officially titled ‘Arcane,’ the in-development animated project from Riot Games will introduce and flesh out “the origins of two iconic League champions—and the power that will tear them apart,” according to the series’ official description. As the anime’s debut trailer appears to include young versions of the blue-haired loose cannon Jinx and the mechanically-inclined Vi, it’s likely they are the two champions that will finally have their stories told–utilizing stunning animation and delving deep into League of Legends’s extensive fantasy-based lore. Check out the footage below.
Outside these short bits of footage, there doesn’t appear to be much else regarding Arcane at the moment, likely placing the new League of Legends anime a bit of a ways off from being released. That being said, there wasn’t a shortage of other reveals appearing at the series’ big 10th-anniversary celebration, the event unveiling a new card-based and fighting game title in the works alongside a previously-rumored League of Legends spin-off game intended for release on consoles and mobile devices.
