■Director of Netflix Original Animation Division
“League of Legends” is a game that enthuses fans all over the world, and I am so excited that the first TV series “Arcane” based on the world-view will be released on Netflix.
This spectacular, thrilling work will make a pretty big impact on the fans.
■Riat Games Entertainment Global President
The fans have been longing for some spin-offs that dig into the world-view of “League of Legends” and the champions, so this work was produced to respond to such a demand. Netflix is globally famous and aims to offer high-quality content like Riat Games, and I consider Netflix to be the perfect partner to deliver “Arcane” to players all over the world.
