Riot’s partnership with French animation studio Fortiche has delivered some superb trailers, however Arcane is at a degree that I’ve by no means seen exterior of big-budget films made by Dreamworks or Pixar. The hand-painted artwork is luxurious and evocative and there is a masterful use of lighting to create placing bits of distinction—particularly within the neon greens of the Undercity. Simply as importantly, the 3D modelling of characters is basically expressive, which helps promote moments of tragedy. Arcane simply appears to be like so rattling cool.”
