Hideo Kojima, the Japanese creative who usually goes through his social networks to comment on the latest films, series, records and other cultural products that he has enjoyed, has done the same with Arcane, the Riot Games and Fortiche Productions series based on the universe of League of Legends released on Netflix.
“I have seen four episodes of Arcane. It is unbelievable! It’s great!“, says the creator of Metal Gear, Death Stranding and the canceled Silent Hills in a tweet published at dawn on November 29. “I was invited to a preview before it was released and I’m sorry I turned it down.”
A digital video achievement between realism and art, following in the footsteps of “Spider-Verse”, “Love”, “Death & Robots” and “Witness”! The future of animation and CG!— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) November 28, 2021
In another post on Twitter, Kojima defines the 3D animation series as “an achievement of digital video between realism and art” and “the future of animation and CGI.” The Japanese creative mentions that the series follows in the footsteps of Spider-Man: A New Universe and Love, Death & Robots.
Kojima menciona especficamente The Witness, the short of Love, Death & Robots winner of three EMMY awards and one ANNIE award written, directed and created by the Spanish Alberto Mielgo, who for a time was also in charge of the production design of Spider-Verse. His signature is on projects as diverse as the animation short of Watch Dogs: Legion, the introduction of The Beatles: Rock Band and Tron Uprsing.
The success of Arcane
Riot Games’ nine-episode television series has been quite a critical and public success. According to the aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, it is one of the best Netflix series. On IMDb has surpassed Game of Thrones. And it did not take long for spectators to surpass The Squid Game. Of course, the second season is already in production, although I will not be released next year. Of course, we expect them to take less time than the first, whose production lasted six years.
