The Team RWBY Project was announced by the RWBY official account on January 31, 2022.
The official account retweeted the following announcement from Team RWBY Project:
“Team RWBY Project Revealed!!” says the translated tweet. “In 2013, the American company Rooster Teeth Productions created the show RWBY, a web anime series. To continue his legacy, a new key visual has been drawn for the project to accompany the announcement!! Future news will be revealed on this account!”
So far, other than the website, no further details have been disclosed about the details behind the project.
However, several voice actors from the RWBY franchise have retweeted this post with words of excitement at the scope of the project.
“YES!! Get excited… more details to follow! #RWBYtweeted Kara Eberlea (the voice of Weiss, the character from the main visual).
“I really can’t wait and I STILL can’t believe it,” tweeted Miles Luna†
The excitement of RWBY’s cast and crew makes it clear that the project could be ambitious. Since Weiss’ outfit was not used in RWBY’s canon web series, this could be an alternate reality for RWBY and its characters.
When will Team RWBY Project be revealed?
No further details have been released about the release date of this unannounced project, but the official Twitter account for the project has stated that the whole picture behind Team RWBY Project will be revealed as part of a special stage at AnimeJapan 2022 on March 26, 2022. keep your eyes peeled to learn more about Team RWBY Project and what it’s all about!
Are VTubers involved in the project?
An interesting thing to note is that at the time of writing, Yagoo, CEO of Hololive, is currently tracking the account for the upcoming RWBY project. It is also rumored that Huke, the artist behind Hololive English’s Kiara, contributed to the art of the key visual. It’s possible this somehow ties into Hololive’s Holoearth or Hololive Alternative projects, but time will tell. Given these facts, a collaboration between the two might not be completely off the table… we’ll just have to wait and see!
Anyway, we have high hopes for AnimeJapan 2022 and what this project could mean for the future of RWBY!
