Aroged, Salatiga – The competition between Dota 2 and League of Legends is heating up. After Dota 2 previously released the animated series Dota: Dragon’s Blood, now League of Legends will also release an animated series.
On May 3, 2021 yesterday, Riot released a teaser video and an announcement about 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 present to fill the series.
Plot League of Legends : Arcane
In the teaser footage, two Champions, Jinx and Vi, are shown. The competition between these two characters is rumored to be the center of the League of Legends: Arcane story.
Riot takes place in the main setting of the city of Piltover and Zaun. The two cities are said to be in conflict between one another due to social disparities. The city of Zaun itself is the hometown of Jinx and Vi and tells how these two characters lived and grew up in the city of Zaun and their journey to the city of Piltover.
Apart from Jinx and Vi, the Champions who will fill LoL: Arcane are Warwick and Caitlyn. Some of the other Champions that are likely to appear are Viktor, Blitzcrank and Ziggs.
Production and Animation
In terms of production, Riot is back with Fortiche Production in producing the animation LoL: Arcane. Previously Fortiche Production had worked on various promotional videos for LoL such as RISE: Worlds 2018, WARRIORS: World 2014 and of course, MV POP / STARS by K / DA.
Unlike Dota: Dragon’s Blood, LoL: Arcane will use full 3D animation compared to Dragons’ Blood which uses 2D. In addition, Riot is targeting an audience of teenagers around 14 years of age. In contrast to Dota, whose target audience is an adult audience of 21 years and over.
In fact, Riot itself has announced the creation of the League of Legends animation project since 2019, long before the announcement of the Dota: Dragon’s Blood project. However, the animation project had to be postponed and only completed in 2021 due to the COVID-19 outbreak that hit.
The League of Legends: Arcane series is slated to premiere at the end of 2021 on the Netflix streaming platform.
