Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – August 29, 2019 – 3D Graphics and Animation studio Sparx*, a Virtuos studio in Vietnam, announces today a new partnership with Riot Games to develop new skins for the online multiplayer battle arena game League of Legends (LoL). The first three skins produced in partnership with Riot Games will be the newest addition to the popular “Infernal” thematic.
The new partnership with Sparx* is one part of a strategy to build scalable solutions as the demand for skins continues to rise from the LoL player base. This is just the first of many skins to come.
To support their partnership with Riot Games, Sparx* has begun expanding the core team as well as adding new talent to join the studio in Ho Chi Minh City, working specifically on assets for LoL.
“Sparx* is incredibly proud to contribute to the development of League of Legends,” said Samuel Stevenin, General Manager of Sparx*. “We extend our massive thanks to the Riot Games team for welcoming us so warmly into their family.”
