The latest from WayForward
Evildoers, beware; Team RWBY is ready for action! Independent game studio WayForward (Shantae, River City Girls) is delighted to announce that RWBY: Arrowfell, an all-new side-scrolling action-adventure video game based on Rooster Teeth’s global animated hit RWBY, is now available digitally on Switch for $29.99 and rated E10+ by the ESRB.
Set during RWBY Volume 7 and featuring an original, in-canon story from the writers of the RWBY animated series, RWBY: Arrowfell lets players take control of all four members of Team RWBY — Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long — as they uncover the mystery surrounding a dangerous new technology encountered near Atlas. Instantly swapping between all four members of Team RWBY, players will unleash the heroes’ signature weapons and Semblances in ranged and melee combat against the Creatures of Grimm and other foes while completing quests, solving puzzles, and exploring more than 25 areas across the continent of Solitas. Along the way, they’ll also battle massive bosses, upgrade their Semblances to reach new areas, and power-up their attributes in four categories by discovering Skill Points.
The RWBY experience is further brought to life through encounters with fan-favorite characters like Qrow, Penny, Winter, and the Ace-Ops, as well as original faces such as Solitas guardian Bram Thornmane, underworld kingpin Amoncio Glass, and the enigmatic group of Huntresses known as Team BRIR. Other authentic features include voice work from the original RWBY cast, all-new animated cutscenes from the makers of the show, an atmospheric soundtrack by composer Dale North, and a brand-new theme song by Jeff Williams with vocals by Casey Lee Williams.
In addition to the digital version of RWBY: Arrowfell, a physical edition of the game will be released by Limited Run Games on select platforms in the months ahead, including both standard and collector’s editions; further details will be made available in the future.
