About Arcane League of Legends
Based on the world of League of Legends, Arcane delves into the delicate balance between the rich city of Piltover and its seedy shady side of Zaun. It is known throughout Runeterra as the “City of Progress” and many of the most brilliant minds are at home in this twin city. But the invention of Hextech, a method by which everyone can control magical energy, threatens this balance. Arcane not only sheds light on the backstories of League of Legends champions. The series is designed to stand on its own as a complex world full of moral choices, great animations, and exciting stories.
Christian Linke, co-creator of Arcane comment: “When we set out to produce Arcane, we knew we were up to something very special with the story of Jinx and Vi. We wanted to investigate the question of what you would do for your family, which values you would compromise and which conflicts you would endure. The story, combined with the hand-painted art style and the nuanced character animation that we developed in collaboration with SFortiche, will provide a comprehensive insight into the world of League of Legends, ”.
We will see some familiar faces in Arcane, such as Jinx, Vi, Jayce and Caitlyn, and learn more about the events that made them the iconic champions we know today. we will also meet some new faces, like Vander and Silco, who are both citizens of Zhaun and play important roles in shaping the developing world. The champions in Arcane are the ones that we have come to love in the games by Riot Games. They should feel very familiar, but there might be some differences as the champions have been adapted for the series format. The series will explore the extremes characters go to when family and tradition conflict with their principles and beliefs. Their personal struggles affect the world in ways they never expected to die and shape the future of twin cities.
