Unsurprisingly, the popular League of Legends spin-off cartoon Arcane will get the second series. The official Twitter account of the show confirmed the news, “Friends, get ready. Arcane season 2 is in production. When you need a Hexgate, where can you find it?”

The collaboration between Riot Games and Netflix was so popular that the selection rate of characters in the “League of Legends” drama soared. Obviously, this popularity is well-deserved. As Steven Messner wrote in his review of the first act of Arcane, “The curse of video game movies and TV derivatives has been completely broken, and Netflix’s arcane has brought a fatal blow.” He praised its artistic style of painting and vibrant battle scenes, as well as its balance between political drama and character development.
This week Riot also released two new games, Ruined King and Hextech Mayhem. They are the first games released under the Riot Forge label. Ruined King is developed by Airship Syndicate, and has similar JRPG style battles to the studio’s previous game Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and Hextech Mayhem is the rhythm runner of Choice Provisions, the creator of the Bit.Trip series.
The premiere date for the second season of Arcane has not yet been announced, and it has not yet been determined whether the same three-act three-week format will be adopted.
