League Of Legends Fighting Game Confirmed (VIDEO)
Having been a staple of MOBA games for the past 10 years, League of Legends is now looking to stretch its considerable lore to new genres such as a newly-announced strategy card game as well as a fully animated series. However, it looks like the series is also aiming to follow in some other unlikely footsteps with the reveal of a new League of Legends-based fighting game.
Currently known as “Project L,” a new video showcase says the project has been brewing over at Riot Games for while now, confirming various rumblings regarding a game featuring Runeterran combat. By the looks of things, Champions will be seen from a quite literal new perspective, with each throwing down with their recognizable abilities from a much closer point-of-view. Very little else can be gleaned from such a short showcase, with Riot themselves confirming Project L still has “a long way to go.” Check it out in the video below at around 3:18.
A League of Legends fighting game is sure to be an exciting idea for fans, especially considering the possibilities of adapting the game for a new brawl-based audience. It’s unknown what form Project L could eventually take, but it’ll be surely interesting whether it ends up akin to the arcade offerings of Street Fighter, the combo-centric Tekken games, or the hyper-violent Mortal Kombat series (probably not MK). Fresh perspectives appear to be where Riot’s head is at as of late, with projects featuring card-based strategy, a premiere tactical shooter, as well as a mobile/console-focused MOBA all currently in the works by the developer.
