The development team for the game has been intermittently hinting the project across their social media channels and via influencers. In an attempt to build anticipation, professional fighting game players were invited to try out the game title and share their impressions about the game.

Project L has been perceived in good light, getting positive feedback from the professionals that have tried the game. Notable mentions have been regarding the mechanics of the game and its nostalgic feel. Prominent Super Smash Melee professional, William 'Leffen' Hjelte, has compared the game to Marvel vs. Capcom 3, stating that he would fit the game into his competitive schedule once it’s out.

Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, and Wild Rift all present characters from the Riot intellectual property. Simultaneously, Valorant, the developer's first-person shooter game, features only original characters.

It's a highly anticipated release from Riot Games which has been slated for a taste at EVO 2023 and further play at the 2023 Worlds Fan Fest in Seoul. The game promises a variety of playable characters from the outset and has been described as having the nostalgic feel of earlier League of Legends games.
