The brand new Netflix series stars Marvel star Hailee Seinfeld and Ella Purnell as Vi and Powder, two sisters who find themselves embroiled in a war for a dangerous new technology. Express.co.uk talked to the creators of Arcane about what diehard League of Legends fans can expect to see in the game’s first on-screen adaptation.
The massively multiplayer game has become one of the most successful games of all time since launching in 2009.
Now, League of Legends has finally brought its characters to life in a new nine-part series streaming exclusively on Netflix.
Series creators Christian and Alex recently spoke to the Express about the series and confirmed there are plenty of hidden references fans might not have spotted.
“Oh there’s certainly Easter eggs,” co-creator Alex confirmed.
“Honestly I feel like even I’m still spotting Easter eggs that some prop or environmental designer was just tucking into a corner all throughout the show.”
Having aired all nine episodes of the new series, the new Netflix animation is fast becoming one of the surprise hits of 2021.
While many of the series’ fans will be completely new to the fantasy world, devoted fans of League have already spotted a number of hidden references to the game.
In the final Act of three episodes, an unknown character appears to be transforming into the popular character Warwick, a vicious beast who preys on criminals.
Plus, there are plenty of subtle references to the characters’ abilities in the game, and Benzo’s (played by Fred Tatasciore) store is chock full of playable items.
However, there are still plenty of Easter eggs the fans and creators of the show have yet to spot.
Although the series has been lauded as an accurate animated adaptation of the game, Christian and Alex wanted to put the characters first.
Alex explained: “I think one of our goals was to try and make sure none of the Easter eggs felt like they were interfering with the story or taking front seat to following the characters and the plot.”

Their approach clearly worked, as Arcane has already been renewed for a second season.
Plus, the showrunners are hoping the series will launch a new world of animation for League fans to dive into for years to come.
“The goal of this show from the very beginning was just to let players understand who these characters that they’ve spent so much time with are when they’re not busy being heroes,” Alec continued.
“We know them as heroes and warriors; we wanted to know them as humans and everyday people.”
“I hope understanding what makes them human and getting to see this world and how they’re connected to other characters and see that their struggles feel real – I think that’s really the main goal of what we want people to see.”
Players have been taking control of the characters for well over a decade now, but the new series has given them a chance to get to know them properly.
Thankfully, the series will only expand the world of League from here, so fans can expect plenty of references and Easter eggs to spot when Arcane returns for season two.
Arcane season 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
