The League of Legends anime series has finally got a release date. Arcane, which will be set in Riot's mystical world of Runeterra and will run on Netflix. In the past couple of years, Netflix has made sure to bring a fair number of gaming shows to its service. Following in the footsteps of Dota: Dragon's Blood, The Witcher, and the Castlevania animated series - Arcane will be arriving on Netflix later this year.
Okay, I'll say it first - the trailer is really short, and it doesn't give a lot away. Though we do see a couple of friendly faces in the chaos, no plot points are given away about Arcane just yet. We've been waiting since 2019 to hear more about Riot's project, however, it seems we'll be waiting a while longer to understand what the series is all about. Right now it seems that it's a canonical work of the true origins of some of the 150 characters League of Legends contains. I do wonder though, if it's a reimagining of these characters in a world that they're not constrained by their Qs, Ws, Es, and Rs.
Here is the trailer for Arcane:
As you can see in the trailer, whatever the content of the series is it looks like it's going to be great fun. By the looks of things the main focuses of the series are going to be Jinx and Vi. Jinx, especially, is one of the most recognisable faces of the League of Legends world, as a sort of Harley Quin-like chaotic character. Vi is also loved by fans and has previously appeared in the gorgeous Warriors animation that Riot released last year.
Other confirmed appearance include Caitlyn and Warwick, according to the League of Legends Fandom wiki, but beyond that, very little is known about the series so far. Riot's animation team hasn't disappointed us before and the game company continues to dominate not only the video game space but also music and now animation too. Arcane should be out in Q3 of this year, but maybe Q4 - and we're eagerly waiting for its release.
