WayForward describes the game:
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.
The game will feature seven minutes of "exclusively created broadcast-quality animated" cutscenes. WayForward is developing the game under the supervision of Rooster Teeth. WayForward and Arc System Works will publish the game.
The RWBY: Ice Queendom (RWBY: Hyōsetsu Teikoku) television anime will premiere in Japan on July 3 on Tokyo MX and BS11, and on July 5 on MBS. Crunchyroll will stream the series as it airs in Japanese with English subtitles, and it will also stream an English dub.
