Arcane Season 1 was a smash hit for Netflix, with some of the best audience reviews and responses, according to Forbes. Which is very impressive given the poor reputation of video game adaptations to movies and TV and how they often disappoint fans. Part of that runaway success is due to the stellar animation but another key to the show's appeal is the adaptation of League of Legends characters to the big screen. Most of the game’s roster has a storyline or personality that remains mostly untapped within the game itself due to its focus on competitive multiplayer. Arcane managed to strike gold in bringing the conflicting motivations and strong personalities of the citizens of Piltover and Zaun to the silver screen.
