“Arcane” is developed and produced by Riot Games in partnership with Fortiche Productions, the Paris-based animation studio that was behind several of Riot Games’ most popular music videos, game cinematics, and other “League of Legends” advertisements. “Arcane” marks Riot’s first foray into television.
Per Netflix, the show is set in the utopian region of 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. The two cities are among several locales in the world of “League of Legends,” which is set on a continent known as Runeterra. In the video game two teams of five players, who each control a particular character, work together to destroy the enemy’s main structure, also known as the Nexus.
