Well that came out of nowhere! While League of Legends hasn't made its way to Switch a spin-off game is on the way. Ruined King: A League of Legends Story has been revealed for the platform, and it's set to launch early 2021. Check out first details on the game below.
Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is developed by Airship Syndicate (the creators of Battle Chasers: Nightwar and Darksiders Genesis, led by the legendary comic book artist Joe Madureira) and is the first game published by Riot Forge. This single-player and immersive turn-based RPG invites new players to the League of Legends universe as well as players entrenched in the lore to enjoy exploring its mysteries.
The story is set in two regions of Runeterra, Bilgewater, a port town that is home to sea monster hunters, dock gangs, and smugglers from across the known world; and the Shadow Isles, a land cursed with the deadly Black Mist which shrouds the island and corrupts those it comes in contact with. In order to defeat a common and mysterious enemy, players will form an unlikely party of beloved League of Legends champions—Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri, and Pyke.
