Looks like Riot also wants a share of the Netflix pie for game series, as Valve’s Dota 2 successfully launched their animated series last February.

League of Legends will make its debut in the streaming platform with Arcane.

Arcane, a first for the immensely popular League of Legends franchise, also marks a first for Riot Games as the studios’ first foray into animated series for television. The series, developed and produced by Riot Games in partnership with Fortiche Productions, will also premiere on Tencent Video in China.

“League of Legends has inspired global fervor and fandom and we’re thrilled to be the home of the first television series set in this universe, Arcane. The series promises to be a visually spectacular thrill ride that will have viewers on the edge of their seats,” said Netflix’s Director for Original Animation.

Meanwhile, Riot Game’s Global President of Entertainment Shauna Spenley said that “Arcane was created as a love letter to our players and fans, who have been asking us for more cinematic experiences that dive deeper into the worlds and champions in League of Legends. Netflix, with its incredible global brand and shared goal of delivering premium, high quality content, is the perfect partner to help us bring Arcane to players around the globe.”

Arcane is set to premiere this fall. Set in Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the story follows the origins of two iconic League champions – and the power that will tear them apart.
