Dota has its own cartoon, and soon League of Legends will too

Back in March, Dota launched its animated series, DOTA: Dragon’s Blood.

In autumn this year, League of Legends will be having an animated series of their very own too.

Key Highlights

  • The long-awaited League of Legends animated series, also known as Arcane, will be coming in autumn this year.
  • News about the animated series was announced back in 2019, but was delayed to 2021 due to the global pandemic.
  • No specific date has been announced as of yet.
  • Arcane will be available on Netflix.

Why It Matters

  • RIOT Games, the developer behind League of Legends, is in an all-out push to expand its business beyond just monetizing the strategy game.
  • The company has been adventuring into comic books, a digital card game, a mobile spinoff, and even board games.
  • With the new Arcane animated series, RIOT could potentially tap into new revenue streams by reaching audiences who don’t play the game.
