League of Legends first animated series is coming to Netflix. League of Legends Arcane will hit the streaming service sometime later this fall, according to a new teaser trailer released on Monday.

The teaser may be just a few seconds long, but it already seems to reveal a few things about what the show’s plot could include. The trailer opens with a fight between Vi, Jinx, who are already familiar parts of the League of Legends universe, and a mysterious third character who seems to skate on walls, and another with lightning powers and some kind of staff weapon.

While we already knew from the series’ first teaser that it would probably be about the origins of Jinx and Vi, it seems this new character could be part of the reason the two eventually became enemies.

Along with their story, we’ll also probably get some backstory of Runeterra’s two competing twin cities, Piltover and Zaun — which might be the green-light soaked city we see at the end of the teaser. Both cities are obsessed with technology, but while Piltover is a steampunk utopia, Zaun’s unchecked experimentation led to a much darker outcome.

If the series is set around these two cities, then it’s also possible we could see appearances from recognizable characters like Viktor, Warwick, Caitlyn, or any of the other dozen or so champions from the region.

League of Legends Arcane will be produced by Riot Games in partnership with Fortiche Productions, which it has worked with on several cinematics and music videos in the past. The series will debut on Netflix later this fall.
