When ONE Esports visited Riot Forge at their booth at Gamescom 2023, all they could tell us was to expect the Song of Nunu release date to be sometime in the last quarter of the year.

This title is Riot Forge’s fifth release after Ruined King, Hextech Mayhem, Convergence, and The Mageseeker.

Ruined King and Hextech Mayhem debuted in November 2021 when Arcane premiered on Netflix. The Mageseeker and Convergence saw April and May releases this year that coincided with Riot’s annual Mid-Season Invitational.

Song of Nunu release date, price, platforms

Song of Nunu will be released on November 1, 2023, which coincides with Worlds 2023.

This year, due to the Asian Games, Worlds was pushed back. Riot’s biggest esports tournament of the year usually starts in late September, but this year it’ll only commence in early October, lasting all the way until mid-November, adopting a new format.
