New League of Legends Arcane trailer

Indeed, on the 20th of September the League of Legends animated series, Arcane, graced us with a 14-second teaser. Although it’s not much, it is something.

The purpose of the teaser was to showcase some of the central characters from the neck down and in some cases their updated looks (e.g., Caitlyn).

Caitlyn is already scheduled to be getting a rework in the game in the near future so it is only natural that the show would follow suit.

This also confirms her presence in the show, which was highly anticipated considering the lore between her and already confirmed characters such as Jinx and Vi.

Speaking of Vi. Polygon confirmed that Hailee Steinfeld, star of the upcoming Hawkeye film, will be voicing the Piltover enforcer.

Alongside her will be Ella Purnell as Jinx (Army of the Dead) and Kevin Alejandro as Jayce (Lucifer).

Arcane character posters

Arcane’s official Twitter account also revealed some character posters, giving us a better look at the character models and exposing the other champions that’ll be making an appearance.

These include known names such as Jayce, an unmasked Viktor, and Caitlyn.
