Rhythm game League of Legends is coming to Nintendo Switch, PC and Netflix


League of Legends expands into a new genre: rhythm platformers. Riot Games and developer Choice Provisions, creator of the Bit.Trip series, have announced Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends story Tuesday, which will come to Nintendo Switch and Windows PC on November 16, followed by a release for Netflix’s mobile games service “soon”.

Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story features Ziggs, the League champion known for his “Hexplosives” expertise. Players bomb-jump and attack enemies to the beat, dodging obstacles (and League champion Heimerdinger) and chaining explosions to a rhythmic soundtrack. You can see Ziggs in rhythm runner action in the first trailer for Hextech Mayhem above.

Choice Provisions’ take on the League of Legends universe is part of Riot Games’ efforts to bring outside developers into the League of Legends intellectual property. Other games unveiled as part of this effort, released under the Riot Forge label, include a role-playing game Ruined King: A League of Legends Story done by Battle Chasers: Night War Airship Syndicate developer. Riot plans to showcase its Riot Forge lineup during a video presentation on Tuesday, November 16 at 8 a.m. PST.

Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story is available for pre-order on Switch and PC, via Steam, GOG.com and the Epic Games Store. Those who pre-order will unlock an exclusive Ruined Ziggs skin for the rhythm racing game.
