League Of Legends Netflix Show Arcane Reveals Trailer, Release Date
A great hoopla has been made on the part of Netflix today with the premiere of its TUDUM announcement event, with the proceedings yielding quite a few big announcements. On top of new looks at Season 2 and Season 3 of the Henry Cavill-led Witcher TV show, the top-tier streamer has now offered an exciting new trailer for its upcoming League of Legends animated series Arcane. Check it out below.
Initially announced back in 2019 and teased a handful of times since, the biggest showcase yet for Arcane made its landing during Netflix’s latest presentation, teasing the origins of LoL Champions Jinx and Vi in a stunningly cinematic recreation of Runeterra. As per the series’ synopsis: “From the creators of League of Legends comes a new animated series, Arcane. Set in the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the story follows the origins of two iconic League champions-and the power that will tear them apart.”
Arcane marks the first animated project from League of Legends developer Riot Games, but hardly the latest effort the game-maker has made to diversify the MOBA juggernaut. In the time since reaching and maintaining a global fanbase, Riot has also put out a strategy card game, a chart-topping music label, as well as a legion of multi-genre titles steeped in the League of Legends universe – including an action RPG and fighting game in development.
