Los Angeles, CA: Best friends and League of Legends champions Nunu and Willump celebrate their ultimate road trip together in a new music video for Song of Nunu: A League of Legends Story™ from Riot Forge and Tequila Works. The original song, titled “You and Me Makes Us,” was written and performed by Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter DEEGAN and co-published by Riot Games Music and music production company The Hit House.
In the music video, the boy Nunu and his yeti Willump–bound by their enduring friendship and love of snowballs–set off on their own journey through Freljord to the cadence of DEEGAN’s friendship-celebrating indie rock track. “You and Me Make Us” prepares audiences for the adventure of a lifetime to be had by the BFFS in the video promoting the game, where players will hike, climb, and sled their way across the Freljord, a frostbitten land full of harsh blizzards, ferocious wolves and enchantment.
“We are beyond thrilled to have collaborated with DEEGAN on ‘You And Me Makes Us,’” said Jonny Altepeter, Riot Games Music. “His artistry is truly captivating, and he has crafted a song that beautifully encapsulates the essence of Nunu and Willump’s heartwarming friendship. We can’t wait to see players’ reactions to their tight-knit and vibrant relationship as they explore the Freljord together.”
Song of Nunu: A League of Legends Story™ is now available for pre-order on all relevant digital storefronts for $29.99. Fans who purchase pre-orders will also receive a digital art book as a bonus gift. Additionally, a physical Collector’s Edition ($99.99) is available on merch.riotgames.com, which includes a Willump plush, Poro plush, Song of Nunu art book, four Freljord postcards, five collectible enamel pins, a collectible artwork print and a campfire pop-up diorama.
