League of Legends: Wild Rift – mobile

Playing League of Legends: Wild Rift is the closest you can get to playing the original MOBA on the go, especially as even some of the best portable gaming consoles that can run the launcher are still ironing out their kinks. Wild Rift is built from the ground up for mobile play, featuring over 40 champions and two game modes: Wild Rift and ARAM.

Riot has consistently supported Wild Rift since its release in 2020, and the official website still promises that a console release is coming soon. Hopefully, we’ll be conquering the arena on our Nintendo Switch in the near future. Why not check out our League of Legends: Wild Rift tier list to see where your favorite character ranks?

League of Legends games: Promotional art for Ruined King in all-green tones

Ruined King – Switch

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story was the first League spin-off game to come from Riot’s publishing arm, Riot Forge. This tactical RPG sees you play as Miss Sarah Fortune, a popular gunslinger character from League’s enormous roster, as she takes over as the ruler of Bilgewater.

Alongside other recognizable characters like Braum, Ahri, and Pike, you work together to fight off an approaching threat from the black mist. This game is a great place to jump into the lore of League of Legends without worrying about who you main in the MOBA. We’ve got a bunch more details in our Ruined King: A League of Legends Story Switch review.

Convergence – Switch

Riot aims to conquer yet another genre with Convergence: A League of Legends Story. This Metroidvania serves as Ekko’s origin story, delving deeper into his life in Zaun and how he mastered his time manipulation abilities. Convergence is also a great game to start with if you’re looking for a familiar face, as Ekko plays a critical role in Netflix’s Arcane series, which helped to spread League even further than ever before.

Convergence features tight combat, fully-voiced dialogue, and beautiful character and environment art to truly immerse you in the story. For more on the game from a League newbie, check out our Convergence: A League of Legends Story Switch review.

The Mageseeker – Switch

Another Riot Forge entry, The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story explores Sylus’ backstory as an imprisoned mage through an action-packed pixel roguelike from the developers of Moonlighter. Sylus is more of an anti-hero than a typical game protagonist, but this game sees you get to know him and his motivations across multiple runs and ultimately delivers his redemption.

Of course, this mage-freeing adventure also features other popular League champions like Morgana and Lux which avid fans can look forward to, but much like the other League of Legends Story entries, you don’t need any prior knowledge to fall in love with this game.
