The first season of Riot Games and Netflix’s animated series Arcane has left a big impression on the gaming community and League of Legends fans around the globe.
Arcane explores Vi and Jinx’s backstories and lore — how they lived and survived inside the City of Iron and Glass, and how they eventually gain their powers. Since its release late last year, the show has received nothing but high praises from iconic personalities including Japanese video game designer and director Hideo Kojima.
