League of Legends is one of the most popular MOBA games out there and now Netflix is making a series based on the game’s characters. The company showed new footage of the series called Arcane, which was first announced in May.
Set in the utopian world of Piltover and in the “oppressed underground world of Zaun”, the show follows two iconic League champions, and the force that will drive them apart. Arcane is already the second MOBA-related anime series on Netflix. DOTA: Dragon’s Blood arrived earlier this year on the streaming service.
Capitalizing on the success of League of Legends and Dota 2 is another of Netflix’s strategies as the service aims to dominate in the game adaptation space. Series like The Witcher are also part of that. Netflix announced that during Geeked Week.
