Yorldes in Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story

Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story is releasing in February 2024, and it covers some lore that hasn’t been explored very much before. What is Bandle City, the place where the game is set? Here’s everything you need to know. 

Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story is a cozy take on the League of Legends universe coming on February 21. Players take control of their own Yordle, customize them, and set out on an adventure

The game takes place in Bandle City, which is only really known to be the place Yordles come from. Bandle Tale will take a deeper look at the home of this mysterious race, and here is everything you need to know about Bandle City.

What is Bandle City in Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story?

Bandle City in Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story is the home to the Yordles, the main faction of the upcoming game. 

Bandle City is known to be the home of the Yordles, a self-contained pocket in the spirit realm. Bandle Tale will be the first piece of media that explores the faction’s home and existence in more detail. 

Bandle City is a magical place where every sensation is heightened for non-Yordles. The colors are brighter, food and drink is intoxicating and unforgettable, and nature is something from a dream. Crystal-clear waters, a warm sun, and bountiful fruit trees cover the City. 

While no one is sure where Bandle City is located exactly, it is known that any who wander there are at risk of getting lost in the majesty of it, never to return. From what we know of the game’s story, Bandle City has portals to the mortal realm, and these serve as a way to travel to and from the Yordle’s home. 

Yorldes themselves are not generally feared in the League of Legends universe. Much like their home, they are spirit creatures that only venture out of Bandle City on very few occasions. 

What we will learn from Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story?

Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story will look deeper into the lore of Yordles, Bandle City, and the portals to the mortal realms

In an interview with Nintendo Direct, Co-Founder of Riot Forge Nikita Kulaga explained that players will be able to learn everything they can about Bandle City. 

“We have a really cool story that goes from the beginning to the end, so you will learn everything about Bandle City, how it works, learn everything about Yordles, and save the city after all,” Kulaga said in the interview. 

Yordles are one of the least explored races of League of Legends, and it looks like Bandle Tale will serve to traverse their world and reveal everything players have yet to discover. 

Bandle Tale is available for preorders now, and we will keep you updated with more information once the game is released.
