'RWBY: Arrowfell' Reveals More Game Details, Shows Off Gameplay - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on July 1, 2022 @ 2:18 p.m. PDT

RWBY: Arrowfell lets you embark on an original 2D action/adventure video game based on the global animated hit RWBY.

Occurring during the events of RWBY Volume 7, RWBY: Arrowfell is an original interactive chapter straight from RWBY writers Kerry Shawcross, Miles Luna, and Eddy Rivas. Players will take control of Team RWBY — Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long — and switch between them on the fly in solo or multiplayer action (local or online) as they use their trademark weapons and semblances to stop a mysterious new threat in this side-scrolling, 2D adventure.

As players explore Atlas, Mantle, and numerous surrounding environments, they will face off against the Creatures of Grimm and other enemies straight from the show, as well as never-before-seen threats. The team also crosses paths with familiar faces including General Ironwood and the Ace Operatives, plus a fearless new group of Huntresses known as Team BRIR.

In addition to voiceovers from the original cast (including Lindsay Jones as Ruby, Kara Eberle as Weiss, Arryn Zech as Blake, and Barbara Dunkleman as Yang), RWBY: Arrowfell features an original score by Dale North with vocal contributions by Casey Lee Williams. Furthermore, the game contains seven minutes of exclusively created broadcast-quality animated cutscenes, as well as a dynamic new hand-drawn art style for the in-game visuals that allows fans to experience the world of RWBY like never before.


The action is heating up on the frozen tundra of Remnant!

Independent game studio WayForward, Rooster Teeth and publisher/developer Arc System Works have revealed new gameplay details and a fresh look at RWBY: Arrowfell. 

The new trailer provides fans of the global animated hit RWBY an updated look at RWBY: Arrowfell's combat, puzzles, visuals, and play mechanics.

Featuring an in-continuity story by RWBY writers Kerry Shawcross, Miles Luna, and Eddy Rivas, RWBY: Arrowfell puts players in control of Team RWBY — Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long — shortly after they've become fully licensed Huntresses in RWBY Volume 7. Players will be able to switch instantly between characters as they battle the Creatures of Grimm and other foes using the heroes' signature weapons — Ruby's Crescent Rose, Weiss's Myrtenaster, Blakes' Gambol Shroud, and Yang's Ember Celica — in melee and ranged combat. As they explore locations across Atlas, Mantle, and the surrounding wilderness, Team RWBY will complete missions for familiar characters such as General Ironwood and the Ace Operatives (as well as everyday citizens) while uncovering clues about a mysterious new threat lurking in the shadows.

Players will also put Team RWBY's Semblances to use both in and out of battle. Ruby's Petal Burst lets her avoid attacks and dash to distant locations; Weiss's Glyphs create usable platforms that can burst into offensive shards; Blake's Shadow manifests a doppelganger that can attack and activate pressure plates; and Yang's Burn unleashes a ground punch that inflicts damage and destroys obstacles. By combining Semblances, players are able to solve increasingly complex environmental puzzles, and each character's Semblance can be upgraded to become even more effective. Additionally, by collecting Skill Points, players can customize and enhance Team RWBY's attributes, including melee attack, ranged attack, defense, and energy regeneration.

Further info about RWBY: Arrowfell, including a specific release date and additional details about the new team of fan-favorite Huntresses, Team BRIR, will be revealed in the months ahead.
