Arcane League of Legends: Plot Information

Riot Games stated that Arcane's story will settle around "the origin of two iconic champions; and the power that will tear them apart." While still very cryptic, the scenery and environments all point to a setting somewhere in Piltover/Zaun.

Additionally, Jinx's iconic boots appear for a split second, perhaps leaning towards a series that will finally answer the hinted connection between the Loose Cannon and Vi, another Zaunite champion.
