Rooster Teeth’s popular anime-style web series RWBY is well into its fourth season, and its video game spin-off is headed to consoles soon. RWBY: Grimm Eclipse launched on Steam last year, and the development team was shooting for a Winter 2016 console launch, but it was delayed last month. Thankfully for those looking forward to Grimm Eclipse, the delay turned out to be a short one. A new trailer was released today, and it reveals a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release date of January 17th.
I’ve played quite a bit of the game myself, and the combat feels pretty great. Grimm Eclipse features Dynasty Warriors style combat with up to four player co-op. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have nearly the amount of depth of content as a Warriors game, and (at least the Steam version) still feels like it’s missing some polish. Still, it’s a lot of fun to play as all of the members of Team RWBY and Team JNPR if you’re already a fan of the series. RWBY: Grimm Eclipse retails for $19.99 on Steam.
