Riot Titles has announced the release of two new League of Legends spin-off games in 2022
Riot's League world contains a game for everyone.
In 2022, Riot Forge, Riot's publishing arm, will release two new League of Legends spin-off titles. Both Song of Nunu, which was announced last week, and Convergence, an action platformer starring Ekko, will be released next year.
Song of Nunu looks a little like The Last Guardian wrapped in the cartoony LoL graphic style in an earlier announcement video. It's an action-adventure game set in Freljord, a harsh tundra with ties to a number of Runeterra characters. Nunu, a League of Legends champion, can climb walls, cross collapsing bridges, and slide down slopes while riding on his yeti, Willump. Tequila Works, a Madrid-based studio that previously created The Sexy Brutale and Rime, is behind the game.
Convergence, which was first revealed in 2019, appears to be similar to a lot of the action platformer games that have come out in the last five years. The game stars Ekko and takes place in Zaun's dingy neighbourhood, which is featured prominently in the new Netflix drama Arcane. It has the same 2D aesthetic and battle rhythm of Dead Cells, as well as a time-rewinding gimmick. Rewinding will come into play when you're fighting foes and need to undo being hit by a heavy strike, according to the makers at Double Stallion Games in a new video.
Both games are scheduled to be released in 2022. Despite the fact that we live in a period when many games are released late, Riot Forge's track record shows that these games will most likely arrive on time. The Ruined King, a League spin-off RPG, debuted this week after being revealed last year, while Hextech Mayhem, a rhythm game, was announced and released this week.
