Netflix’s ‘Arcane’ Adds More to the ‘League of Legends’ Universe While Keeping the Essence that Fans Love

Riot Games, the League of Legends franchise producer, has put their hat in the television ring for the first time with Netflix’s newest animated series Arcane

Of course, Riot is most known for developing popular video games such as VALORANT, Legends of Runeterra, and Teamfight Tactics

The show currently sits at 100% critic score and 98% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, dethroned Squid Game on Netflix’s most-watched list since the show’s monumental debut, and successfully expands the League of Legends universe. 

However, the big question some of you may be wondering is—is Arcane a show non-gamers can enjoy the same as long-time League of Legend fans? 

The short answer: YES. 

All in all, with compelling and chilling storylines, Arcane can and will attract new fans not akin to the gaming side of the franchise (as it did me), while thoughtfully adding to the lore old fans will no doubt appreciate too.
