EVO Japan 2024 to feature playable Project L Demo
Kyohei Lehr, a game designer at the Project L Team in Riot Games sent a message to the attendees of the Riot Games ONE.
He stressed the success of Project L demo earlier this year at EVO in the United States. Lehr further highlighted the importance of Japan in the Fighting Games scene, and this is why they are also bringing Project L to EVO Japan 2024.
We want Japanese fighting games fans as well as Riot Games fans who have yet to experience fighting games to discover the fun for themselves.
The dev team will also be present at EVO Japan and will be taking feedback from the community on the game. Riot has been in active contact with professional players and the community to understand what aspects of the game are liked or disliked.
Our goal is to build the game with you, and for you, with communities around the world.
Project L was first announced in 2019 during the League of Legends anniversary stream. The game is based in the League of Legends universe, with fans of Riot’s popular MOBA recognizing quite a few of the characters.
