Late last week, the official Rooster Teeth Twitter account confirmed that the popular YouTube channel's RWBY series would be crossing over with the acclaimed RPG Knights Chronicle.
Starting tomorrow, July 11th, fan-favourite RWBY characters such as Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long will make their grand entrance to the world of Knights Chronicle. I'm sure it's going to be an exciting event for fans, and it'll be neat to see all the new battle cutscenes for the RWBY characters.
For RWBY fans who might be unfamiliar with the game, Knights Chronicle is a mobile RPG where you embark on a journey to the gorgeous, though deadly, planet Garniel. It's a hero collector with over 160 unique characters to recruit and utilise in intense battle. Every new recruit comes with their own special skills and talents, so there’s plenty of scope to be creative when leading your crew to victory.
And for players of the game who haven't yet checked out the show, RWBY is an online animated series starring a bunch of magic-using teens, called "Hunters" and "Huntresses", whose job it is to protect their world from monsters known as Grimm. Its first season aired all the way back in 2013, so it's been popular for a fair while.
The RWBY cast has previously appeared in the likes of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, so this is only the latest in a series of crossovers. That being said, Knights Chronicle seems like the perfect match for RWBY, with its anime-style cutscenes, cast of heroic teens, and epic, world-saving storyline.
You can check out RWBY over on Rooster Teeth's official channel, and you can download Knights Chronicle from the App Store or Google Play for free. I’m currently unsure of how long the event will last, or if it's even a timed thing at all, so best check it out when it starts tomorrow.Check out our news section to discover the latest, and greatest, games.
