League of Legends goes 2D in new Netflix trailer starring Jinx
The trailer, titled Arcane which is also the name of the League Of Legends animated series, features Jinx. A popular character known for his Harley Quinn demeanor. Jinx is portrayed in a very different light in the trailer, however.
No more wacky and offbeat attitude. In its place is a state of mind dominated by feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety and rage. All the things that Jinx is not usually associated with. But that’s the beauty of this animated series. As Riot seeks to create some of the character background for his hit game.
The series, or at least this trailer and its predecessors, is meant to be more of an origin story. Getting viewers to understand how and possibly why Jinx has become the Jinx that gamers know and love.
Jinx has a score to settle in latest League of Legends animated series trailer
Sibling rivalry is a story as old as time. One sibling gets all the attention while the other may be harassed. Which sometimes makes the latter feel less important.
That’s not necessarily what happens in this trailer. But you feel an emotion building up, coming from something traumatic. Intense emotion. Seething from the very heart until Jinx finally unleashes his fury on a boxing machine in a flurry of kicks and punches.
While recalling what seem to be painful memories of her and her sister Vi. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, you can check it out above. And you definitely should, because it helps set the stage for possibly more trailers and the story of the series itself.
The series will land on Netflix this fall
Neither Riot nor Netflix have yet set an exact release date. But the series will occasionally be released on Netflix this fall. The arrival is therefore not so far away.
While there is still a lot of unknowns about Arcane, this latest trailer paints a picture of what the main arc of the story will be. A rivalry between Jinx and Vi. You can also watch the initial trailer here, as well as the Dev Diary on the series below, which delves into various elements of the series, from the story to the set.
