Riot Dota, Riot Announces League of Legends Animated Series

GAMEFINITY.ID, Salatiga – The competition between Dota 2 and League of Legends is heating up. After Dota 2 previously published the animated series Dota: Dragon’s Blood, League of Legends will now also publish an animated series.

On May 28th, 2021, Riot posted a teaser video and announcement for the animated series League of Legends: Arcane. This 19 second video shows some footage from the League of Legends: Arcane series along with a number of characters who will be in attendance to fill that series.

Plot League of Legends: Arcane

Two champions are featured in the teaser trailer, namely Jinx and Vi. The rivalry of these two characters is meant to be at the heart of the League of Legends: Arcane story.

Riot occupies the main square in the towns of Piltover and Zaun. The two cities are said to come into conflict with each other due to social inequality. The city of Zaun itself is the hometown of Jinx and Vi and tells how these two characters live and grow in the city of Zaun and how they travel to the city of Piltover.

Besides Jinx and Vi, the champions who will fill LoL: Arcane are Warwick and Caitlyn. Some other champions likely to appear are Viktor, Blitzcrank, and Ziggs.

Production and animation

In terms of production, Riot worked again with Fortiche Production on the production of LoL: Arcane Animation. Fortiche Production previously worked on various LoL promotional videos such as RISE: Worlds 2021, WARRIORS: World 2014 and of course MV POP / STARS by K / DA.

Unlike Dota: Dragon’s Blood, LoL: Arcane uses full 3D animation compared to Dragons’ Blood which uses 2D. In addition, Riot is aimed at an audience of teenagers ages 14 and up. In contrast to Dota, whose target group is an adult audience aged 21 and over.

In fact, Riot himself announced the creation of the League of Legends animation project since 2021, well before the announcement of the Dota: Dragon’s Blood project. However, the animation project had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak and not completed until 2021.

The League of Legends: Arcane series is slated to premiere on the Netflix streaming platform at the end of 2021.
