Fan Favorite RWBY Characters Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, Yang Xiao Long and Cinder Fall Join Knights Chronicle Heroes

 

LOS ANGELES (July 11, 2019) – Previously revealed during the RWBY panel at RTX on July 5, Netmarble is officially launching its all-new collaboration with the media and entertainment company Rooster Teeth to bring the widely beloved anime-style series RWBY (pronounced as “Ruby”) into the anime-inspired mobile role-playing game (RPG) Knights Chronicle.

 

Starting now through July 31, players and RWBY fans alike will be able to attract the powerful members of Team RWBY - Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long - and the deadly Maiden of Fall, Cinder Fall, from the world of Remnant into their roster of powerful heroes through Knights Chronicle’s Summon Shop. These updates include:

 

  • An all-new Advent Dungeon where fans can win over Cinder Fall into their party and learn how the worlds of Knights Chronicle and RWBY come together in an all-new story.
  • All-new costumes for Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, Yang Xiao Long and Cinder Fall themed after their Beacon Academy uniforms.
  • A limited-time check-in event where players can simply log-in and earn a free 4★ SSR RWBY hero.

                                                                 

Knights Chronicle features classic turn-based role-playing gameplay, a beautiful Japanese animation-inspired art style and a compelling story showing the same standard of quality as console and PC RPGs. The game also sports standout features, including real-time party play where fans can form parties of up to five members to challenge multiplayer dungeons, explosive 3D-animated skills that demonstrate the game’s flashy and gorgeously detailed visuals, and over 160 heroes for players to choose from.

 

Knights Chronicle is available in 140 countries. For more information, please visit http://knightsgbweb.netmarble.com/.
