Rooster Teeth is known for many things, but one of the most notable feats is being able to create so many memorable IPs. It started with Red vs. Blue, but it’s blossomed into something much more. One of their biggest shows by far however is RWBY, the “American Anime” set in the world of Remnant and combines fantasy, sci-fi, cyberpunk, and more for an adventure truly unlike any other. RWBY Volume 5 continued the adventures of its four main characters in many ways, and soon, you’ll be able to own the adventures yourself.
On June 5th, RWBY Volume 5 will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD. It’ll contain all the episodes, as well as behind-the-scenes talk with the cast and crew, including some features about how the production of RWBY has changed from its humble beginnings to its now worldwide acclaim.
Now, if the date, June 5th, is sounding familiar to you, it should. It’s because it’s the same day that BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is going to release on PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. The entire team of RWBY (Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang) will be in the game, and it’ll in fact be their first true video game debut.
“We love how passionate the fans of RWBY are. Volume 5 received such a great reaction and we’re really looking forward to be able to provide these episodes along with a behind-the-scenes look at the series through the bonus features,” said Gray G. Haddock, Head of Animation at Rooster Teeth.
Vol.6 is in the works right now and will release later this year. Also coming out around that time is the second volume of the RWBY manga anthology series. You can read my review of the first one here.
And naturally, let us know what you think about RWBY, and what you’re looking forward to in the next season.
