So is there is still a chance for Weiss, Blake, Yang, Jaunne, Nora, Pyra or Ren to show up to help Ruby rep RWBY?

I'd say there's a very strong chance that all the members of team rwby will make it, all of team jnpr may not make it though but that heavily depend on how much characters we get from each game.

My only concern is if there'll be any new characters from persona's side specifically if we can finally get makoto of p3 since atlus did revive it for a dancing spinoff.

Also is there gonna be some sort of story? I mean for it to be part of the official canon would be impossible but I'd like something deeper than: "oh no we've been thrown into an alternate world and these people look scary, let's beat them up and ask questions after" or something along those lines.

Ok, I haven’t played UNIB, but did it have an English dub? I know the most recent Blazblue game didn’t have one, but the rest of the properties have established English voices. Hopefully a dub is in the cards for this one, I don’t think I’ll be able to play as Ruby without hearing Lindsay Jones (bless Saori Hayami’s heart though). It’ll be a nightmare to get together, though, I can only assume lol

Well Ruby's voice is in English as you can see in the trailer here, but I don't think the non-RWBY characters will get an English dub.

I would imagine if we got any other RWBY characters it'll just be the Team RWBY members. I feel like adding Ruby and any others to the game is just a preview of a full blown RWBY fighting game with a lot more characters. Only makes sense since the other games represent other fighters from Arc.

That bit at the end of the trailer, I wonder if it's for a Guilty Gear character announcement? Let's see if they announce Sol next time.

I'd be more then happy with team RWBY as a whole was in this.

This and Dragonball fighter Z has me excited for fighting games again!

Just basing this off my knowledge of the characters in RWBY, but there are a bunch of characters they could add if they wanted.

Obviously all of Team RWBY, but there are plenty of options: Team JNPR (Though Jaune is a bit iffy), Glynda Goodwitch, Winter, Qrow, Raven, Neopolitan, Cinder, and Penny. Velvet could be really cool as well, since her weapon is so versatile you could have her be a mimic character with different styles that could switch on the fly.

I also think adding some some P5 characters would be amazing. Protag/Akira, Makoto, and Adachi would be good starts.

This and Dragon Ball Fighterz have got me really hype for next year. I've already pre-ordered the latter and will most likely do the same with this whenever they drop a release date.

I'd hope Sol would be the Arcade Mode's final boss to be honest. IE; they don't announce him. ArkSys did say they wanted to do a BB x Guilty Gear crossover at some point but Sign's a thing now so just giving the Sol/Ky tag team as the final boss in Arcade would probably be a good compromise.

It wouldn't take a lot of effort to make it more coherent than Marvel vs Capcom Infinite.

Another question, which RWBY theme will be in the game? Season 1, 2, 3, 4 or the upcoming season 5?

While no one else bothered to even answer this line, no, Under Night In-Birth does not have one period.
