There’s A League Of Legends…2D Fighting Game

Not satisfied with playing League of Legends as an arena battle game, some fans have decided to turn the multiplayer smash into a 2D fighting game.

It’s called League of Fighters, and in some good news for those who live in constant fear of video game lawyers, the developers were smart enough to reach out to Riot Games ahead of time and get their blessing. Which Riot have duly given.

So as soon as developers Instaburst are done actually hiring their team, we can expect a 2D League of Legends fighting game. One that, owing to the legality of using Riot’s IP, will be free. What a world we live in.


  • while it looks quite intriguing and it has loads of potential, I feel that for something like this to work it really needs a decent budget behind it to get the fighting game mechanics to feel fluid and enjoyable. I would like to see riot themselves take this project on with all the resources resources they have at their disposal.
