The first League of Legends animated series, Arcane, has finally launched on Netflix after being announced over two years ago. While only the first three episodes are out fans and critics alike appear to be in love with the show, and it currently sits on a near-perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes.
League of Legends: Arcane is dropping in three “acts” over the course of November, with the first three episodes out now on Netflix and the following six episodes hitting over the course of the next two weeks. This is a big deal for developer Riot Games, which has been arranging various cross-game celebrations – even going so far as to partner with a beauty outlet.
The publisher must be relieved, then, because the initial reviews from fans and critics alike regarding Arcane’s first episodes have been universally praiseworthy. This thread on Reddit commending the episodes has 10.8k upvotes and over a thousand comments at the time of writing, with the initial commenter calling it “truly ground-breaking”.
