Arcane is an animated series based on the popular MOBA League of Legends that was announced back in October 2020 at the League of Legends 10th Anniversary.

The producer of this series is Riot Games itself and now we have more visuals of it. A small 18 seconds teaser is released featuring Jinx and Vi, two of the Champions from the game that are shown as rivals along with a few other anonymous characters.

Shauna Spenley, Riot Game’s Global President of Entertainment, said: “Arcane was created as a love letter to our players and fans, who have been asking us for more cinematic experiences that dive deeper into the worlds and champions in League of Legends. Netflix, with its incredible global brand and shared goal of delivering premium, high quality content, is the perfect partner to help us bring Arcane to players around the globe.”

Dominique Bazay, Director, Original Animation for Netflix, added: “League of Legends has inspired global fervor and fandom and we’re thrilled to be the home of the first television series set in this universe, Arcane. The series promises to be a visually spectacular thrill ride that will have viewers on the edge of their seats."

Arcane is Riot Games Studios' first project, and it isn't the only animated series based on a MOBA game. DOTA: Dragon's Blood was released on Netflix earlier this year in March, and it is based on Valve's DotA 2, which is thought to be a League of Legends rival, as the classic DotA 2 vs LoL fight between MOBA lovers has been going on for more than a decade now.

Riot Games' Arcane is in the pipeline to release this fall of 2021 on Netflix.
