A new teaser for Arcane has just been released. The teaser of the new League of Legends animated series showcases the main champions who will be central to the story.
What is Arcane?
Arcane is an animated television series set in the League of Legends universe and is currently being developed and produced by Riot Games and animated by Fortiche Productions.
It was originally announced on the game’s 10th anniversary in 2019, however the release has been delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Like the game it is based on, Arcane is aimed at a “14+” audience and will cover some more adult content.
What we know about the story so far
The story seems to revolve around the childhood of two well-known characters in the League of Legends universe: Vi and Jinx, who tell the story of when they were both little girls wandering the streets of Piltover dreaming of inventions and crystals, but also told their setbacks when they become intertwined with possible malicious devious machinations of Zaun.
Arcane takes place in the past compared to the in-game present we play in, which is why in the original trailer we only see familiar faces (Jinx and Vi) as children. However, in the new teaser, we clearly see a furious Vi and a calmer Jinx than we know her … maybe before the disaster that turned her into the insane woman we know and have come to love.
Teaser and trailer
The original trailer was released in October 2019, on the 10th anniversary, and shows two cities and three kids, who are apparently new or anonymous characters, but the new teaser clearly shows at least three champions we all know.
The new teaser, released today, shows Jinx, Vi and, for a brief moment, what can be identified as Victor while they fight .. who knows what .. or who?
Arcane release date
As mentioned above, the series was set to release in 2020, but due to the pandemic, it has been postponed to a date to be determined. However, it was revealed today that Arcane will be available on Netflix this fall.
