Fans to create unofficial League of Legends fighting game

Riot Games approves of upcoming League of Fighters game as long as developer Instaburst does not profit from it.

A group of League of Legends fans are teaming up to create a 2D fighting game based on the successful MOBA title for the PC called League of Fighters.

League of Legends creator Riot Games has approved the project, provided developer Instaburst does not sell the game.

If this pans out, fans will see a Miss Fortune vs. Katarina 2D catfight.

As part of the announcement, Instaburst has created a trailer, which shows off Annie the Dark Child using her trademark moves from the MOBA.

Instaburst has promised the game will feature a single-player mode, as well as local and online multiplayer.

There is currently no release date set for the fan-made game. Interested parties can get more information at the developer's website.

I love how people are treating this like some AAA launch title. It's made by fans, they don't have endless money being tossed at them from the likes of EA and such.

Respect for them. Beat em up is a very complicated type of game to program it looks great  kudos

F*ck you Hasbro. F*ck you.

Well, least Riot Games ain't gonna cry about fans making a fighter out of something they love playing so much. Grats to those guys and I can't wait to try out the demo/full game xD

Seems pretty cool. The portrait artist sure did a great work there, but I don't really like the character sprites.

Looking at the trailer, I'd have thought they'd have been better to go with MUGEN than FM2K- the engine looks a little ropey.

I wish them luck with it regardless (and doubtless people will rip the characters into MUGEN anyway!)

Will it be ready for a main spot in the EVO 2014 roster?

This actually sounds like a really cool idea, and I think Riot should actually consider trying to bring these guys on and make it have higher production value like the real LoL and try to turn it into a real game people would play. Every time they release a new champ to sell on LoL they could do the same on this and such.

I like the fact that Riot has given the green light on this. If only more things like this happened.

Riot must be the most useless successful developer, They haven't got replays to work yet, they release one champion per month, they have 100+ people in the company, they haven't anounced any new game or even a new gameplay mode, they are one of the best companies for work enviroment (propably because nobody is doing anything productive) and they are making billions. I bet half of their staff are drones, they really need a new CEO ,how much more can they milk the cow?

@telaros  Sir, thank you for saying that. When it comes to fan-made games or even just mods, the suits at Hasbro have historically been the biggest idiots since God created man. Anybody here remember what they did when a bunch of really awesome fans/developers were making a NON-PROFIT G.I. Joe mod for Battlefield?? Yes, authentic G.I. Joe and Cobra vehicles, locations, gear, etc..

Hasbro killed it. Idiots.
