Arcane has received the Best Adaptation award at The Game Awards 2022.
Best Adaptation is a brand new category introduced into 2022's The Game Awards lineup. It focuses on tv shows and movies that are adaptations of video games, and evidently, this year was just calling for the award with what got released to our screens. We saw fantastic shows like Arcane, and the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime, both of which blew fans' expectations out of the water. The Cuphead Show!, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, and the Uncharted movie were also included as nominees for the award – though it was far-fetched for any of them to pass the two front runners.
That's because, in gamers' eyes, the discussion revolved solely around Arcane and Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. And the animated TV series Arcane and all its glory ended up receiving the Best Adaptation award. Arcane is based on the massively popular MOBA, League of Legends. The TV show is developed straight from the game's lore, and features iconic characters, like Jinx, Vi, and Ekko as protagonists of the TV series.
Arcane debuted its first season on Netflix on November 6 in 2021 and concluded the season in the first half of 2022. Since then, fans have been pushing for Arcane season 2, which has been confirmed for a 2023 release. But as of now, we're still awaiting an official date.
