The first official trailer for the upcoming League of Legends anime series Arcane has premiered at TUDUM: A Netflix Global Event today, giving us a look at the origin story of sisters Vi (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld) and Jinx (Ella Purnell) set in Runeterra, the world of Riot Games' popular MOBA game.
The story is set in the twin cities of Piltover and Zaun, and will feature other League Champions that fans of the game would recognize. For those unfamliar, Piltover is the upper-side utopia, and Zaun is Runeterra's dystopian slums. In the current lore of the League of Legends, Jinx and Vi don't get along with each other.

The trailer shows us the epic scale of Arcane, and the dystopian world of League of Legends. I'm looking forward to watch this anime series even though I haven't played Riot's MOBA game.
Here's the official synopsis for Arcane:
From the creators of League of Legends comes a new animated series, Arcane. Set in the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the story follows the origins of two iconic League champions-and the power that will tear them apart.
