About Bandle City
Bandle City is said to embody the spirit of whimsy and adventure, with magic, tricks, and multi-region cards - cards that can be one region or another. When building a deck with such cards, the only requirement is to have a single-region card from either of the cards' two regions.
Region Roads for Bilgewater, Noxus, Piltover & Zaun, Shadow Isles, and Shurima have
been extended to level 40.
126 new cards

Riot also indicated that the next batch of card updates is currently planned for October 20, 2021.
New Keywords - Impact & Manifest
Followers with Impact deal one damage to the enemy Nexus when they strike while attacking. While it may not seem like much on its own, multiple attackers with Impact will stack the effect, allowing you to deal significant burst damage to the enemy Nexus in one fell swoop!
Manifest embodies the spirit of adventure in Beyond the Bandlewood, letting you choose between three cards chosen at random (within specific parameters, depending on the card used) when the effect is activated.
As one would expect, new Challenges and Quests are also being introduced in order to highlight the new Keywords, archetypes, and champions from this expansion; inluding AI decks.
Various customizations themed around the Bandlewood expansion set will also be available (some are included below).
