Look: 5 glorious new League of Legends spinoff games

Riot Forge is partnering with indie developers to create story-focused games set in League of Legends’ Runeterra universe.

On November 16, 2021, Riot Games held a showcase highlighting 5 new games Riot Forge is working on.

5. Hextech Mayhem

This wacky rhythm-based runner from Choice Provisions is out now on PC and Nintendo Switch for $9.99.

Hextech Mayhem stars the yordle Champion Ziggs as he causes destruction in Piltover and uses Hexplosives to build the biggest bomb in Runeterra.

While it's much lighter in tone, this game expands upon the Hextech origin story in Arcane and even features Professor Heimerdinger.

4. Ruined King

Riot Forge surprised viewers by revealing that Ruined King from Battle Chasers: Nightwar developer Airship Syndicate is out now on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

This turn-based RPG stars League of Legends champions like Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri, and Pyke. It is set in the Runeterra regions of Bilgewater and The Shadow Isles.


Next year, Double Stallion will release CONV/RGENCE, an action-platformer starring Ekko where players can rewind time whenever they want.

Ekko recently appeared as a child in Arcane, so this game seems closely tied with that animated Netflix series.

2. Song of Nunu

This adventure follows the Champion Nunu as he searches for his mother with the help of a giant yeti named Willump.

Song of Nunu is developed by Tequila Works, an indie game studio known for other emotional adventure games like Rime and Gylt.

1. Demacia

At the end of the presentation, Riot Forge also briefly teased a game set in Demacia with a pixelated style.

Demacia is an insular military-focused kingdom in turmoil and the home of popular Champions like Garen, Lux, and Fiora. There’s a lot of potential for a game set there.
