A pre-registration page for the Mobile version of League of Legends briefly appeared in China and Brazil today. It has since been swiftly removed by Riot but speculation is now high that the announcement and pre-registers are likely to start tomorrow, which will mark the 10th anniversary of League of Legends.
Daniel Ahmad was one of the first industry analysts to comment, providing images that you can see below. He states in a follow-up Tweet that the gameplay will apparently be the same as the PC version but obviously, designed with mobiles in mind.
A pre-registration page for League of Legends Mobile went up in China earlier today.
The link is no longer live. Perhaps it leaked early before the 10th anniversary stream tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/rM57hVlTos

Rod Breslau, an esports consultant, also Tweeted about the game with more speculative information stating that sources have told him there’s more than a mobile version of League coming. He said they’re also planning on launching a digital card game called Legends of Runeterra alongside an anime based on the League of Legends universe.
This somewhat contradicts Daniel Ahmad’s Tweet where he says that Legends of Runeterra will be the name of the game in China. Either way, most people are agreeing that we’ll probably find out more information during the 10th Anniversary stream.
Riot Games will announce a new digital card game titled ‘Legends of Runeterra’ during the League of Legends 10th Anniversary event today, sources tell me

This stream is due to take place in the early hours of the morning for Europe at 3 AM CEST on October 16th. Meanwhile, North American viewers will be able to tune in at 8 PM CT on 15th October on the League of Legends Twitch channel.
Some leaked footage of the game surfaced on the internet back in August so we’ve been aware of the game’s existence for a while now. However, how much of the above speculation is true remains to be seen. Though a reveal for the mobile version of the game during the 10th Anniversary stream would make logical sense.
