Riot has revealed that there might be an Arcane teaser during LEC 2023 final season.

The LEC 2023 Season Finals is on the horizon. LEC, or League of Legends European Championship, is the EMEA region’s major League of Legends tournament. During the final season, 6 teams compete, and the winning team can compete in the League of Legends World Championships.

Earlier this year, LEC officially unveiled that the Season Finals will take place in Montpellier, France. Moreover, Montpellier is also where part of Fortiche Production is located. And Fortiche Production is well known for making Arcane: A League of Legends Story.

Arcane is a League of Legends-themed show made under the supervision of Riot Games. Furthermore, it was aired on Netflix. And it is also one of the most popular shows Netflix has ever released, and because of that, it has amassed a huge fan base.

Arcane focuses on two fan-favorite characters, Vi and Jinx, and takes place in the fictional region, Piltover & Zaun. The story’s main plot revolves around the tension between the two cities and their conflicts. Some other fan-favorite characters who appear are Jayce, Ekko, Heimerdinger, Singed, and Swain (mentioned). The best aspect of Arcane is that it appeals to long-time League of Legends fans and individuals who have never heard of the game.

Because of the quality of the show, it was a cultural phenomenon. Even now, it has a perfect 100% critics score and an extraordinary 96% audience score. Because of it, the show was renewed for a second season right after the ending of the first.

Arcane X LEC Season Finals 2023 Collaboration?

When LEC Commissioner, Artem Bykov, was asked if we were getting any upcoming collaboration with Fortiche, he responded that it would be “silly” for LEC not to collaborate “in one way or another” with them.

Although nothing is completely confirmed yet, we might see some collaboration related to Arcane sometime in 2023. The main reason is that Arcane is expected to receive a second season this year. Furthermore, it could also be an animated show set in a different region other than Piltover and Zaun since during the Arcane 1st anniversary Q&A, the creators of Arcane discussed that they wanted to make a similar show to Arcane, which is set in a different region.
