WayForward, Arc System Works and Rooster Teeth have set a final release date RWBY: Arrowfell. The action adventure title is set to officially debut on the Switch on November 15, 2022.
RWBY: Arrowfell allows players to control all four Hunters – Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang – and use their signature weapons and Semblance in combat and exploration. Read more about the game below.
Featuring an endless 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, as they became fully licensed Huntress in RWBY Volume 7. Players will be able to instantly switch between characters as they fight Creatures of Grimm and other enemies using the signature weapons of the heroes – Ruby’s Crescent Rose, Myrtenaster Weiss, Blakes’ Gambol Shroud and Ember Celica Yang – in hand-to-hand and ranged combat. By exploring locations in Atlas, Mantle and the surrounding wilderness, Team RWBY will complete missions for famous characters such as General Ironwood and Ace Operatives (as well as common citizens) while uncovering clues about a mysterious new threat lurking in the shadows.
Players will also use Semblance Team RWBY both in and out of battle. Ruby’s Petal Blast allows her to dodge attacks and jump to distant places; Weiss’s glyphs create useful platforms that can explode into offensive debris; Blake’s Shadow manifests a double that can attack and activate pressure plates; and Yang’s Burn launches a ground blow that deals damage and destroys obstacles. By combining Semblance, players are able to solve increasingly complex environmental puzzles, and each character’s Semblance can be upgraded to be even more effective. Additionally, by collecting skill points, players can customize and upgrade RWBY’s team attributes, including melee attack, ranged attack, defense, and energy regeneration.
The action is complemented by the voices of the original RWBY cast (including Lindsay Jones as Ruby, Kara Eberle as Weiss, Arryn Zech as Blake and Barbara Dunkelman as Yang), completely new TV-quality cutscenes, atmospheric soundtrack by composer Dale Northa and a brand new vocal-themed song by Casey Lee Williams.
