Riot’s partnership with French animation studio Fortiche has delivered some wonderful 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 hanging bits of distinction—particularly within the neon greens of the Undercity.
