Riot Games has revealed that League of Legends will at long last be making the jump to consoles as a new version called "Wild Rift".

Separately, Los Angeles-based Riot Games said this week it is working on six new games.

The developer insisted in a press release that Wild Rift is not a straight-up port of League, but a "new game built from scratch to ensure it is a polished, legitimate LoL experience that's worth players' time".

The dev team has revealed that League of Legends Wild Rift will be released in 2020 on Android and iOS. Well, Senna (support) is coming to the Rift, and will be available on the live version of the game on November 10. Obviously, there will be climbed ladder where you'll be able to earn loot according to your position.

League of Legends: Wild Rift will include loads of skins across dozens of themes, which lets players customize their champion.

So it sounds like League of Legends Wild Rift will probably not be open to most fans in the U.S. and United Kingdom this year.

Analogue Pocket: mother of all Gameboys announced, slated to arrive in 2020
The Pocket will display those games on a 3.5 inch LCD screen at 1600x1440 - 10 times the resolution of the original Game Boy. The Pocket comes in either a matte black or a crisp white, with a screen that stretches the entire width of the device.

Teamfight Tactics is also hitting mobile in the first quarter of next year, bringing Riot's own autochess strategy game to smartphones and tablets. Likewise, very little information was proffered on Project F other than it was going to be an "open-world" game. All of those, bar one, are based in the League of Legends universe and, will feature the popular characters from the franchise. That's right ladies and gentlemen, League of Legends is going nowhere. Unfortunately, since the game is still in early development, Riot did not have a release window. On mobile, it will be a standalone title, and like the other two games it will feature many familiar champions.

This will be the full version of the game, while plans are also in place to host LoL Mobile betas. It's coming in 2020 for PC and mobile devices: Jinx and Yasuo are the main headliners for the key art so far.

If you've played a sports management sim in recent years, you'll know that they're no joke.

Gamers can pre-register on the Android and iOS app stores to make sure they're the first to gain access.

Like the other two games, Teamfight Tactics is now up for pre-registration on the Play Store.
