You can watch below and see why it’s got me more even than excited for the municipal chaos of Arcane Season 2.
Arcane: Bridging the Rift Part One is called “I Only Dream in Risky,” and follows the Arcane team and focuses on co-creators Alex ‘Scribbles’ Yee and Christian ‘Praceo’ Linke as they reveal the origins of Jinx’s origin story.
