Unlike Song of Nunu: A League of Legends Story which emphasises 3D platforming and cooperative puzzle-solving, Bandle Tale is a cosy crafting game where you are tasked with rebuilding Bandle City after the world is thrown into chaos.

You can gather materials and craft new structures and buildings, while also fulfilling quests from all of your favourite League of Legends Champions, making this game even better if you're a big fan of the MOBA and its characters.

There is currently no news regarding a PlayStation or Xbox release for Bandle Tale, and it looks very unlikely following the recent news of a significant number of job losses at Riot Games.

In the statement explaining the situation at the studio, it has also become apparent that Riot Forge, the facet of the studio responsible for these titles, will be shutting down as a result of these cuts following Bandle Tale's release.

That wraps up everything we know so far about Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story, but make sure to keep checking back on this page as we'll always have the latest info when it arrives to keep you in the loop.
