So we just got done with our panel at Anime Expo and it was insane. SO MUCH BIG NEWS. Let’s start with a project I’m thrilled to share more news on - gen:LOCK! Now we’ve already told you about this guy, but, oh, there’s so much more.
Today we announced some amazing new cast members including esteemed voice talent Kōichi Yamadera as Kazu Iida, a gL recruit from Japan. Yamadera-san has been in a couple tiny shows like Batman Ninja, Cowboy Bebop, and Ghost in the Shell, y’know, so maybe you've heard of him.
We’re also thrilled to announced that Dakota Fanning is joining our cast as Miranda Worth, an expert pilot and someone who is very close to Chase. Yes, THAT Dakota Fanning from The Alienist, The Twilight Saga, and so much more.
We also revealed our first supporting cast member, with Monica Rial (Dragon Ball Z, RWBY) playing the part of Colonel Raquel Marin — yes, it’s her voice you’ve already heard in the virtual call in the gen:LOCK teaser! As excited as I am about how this cast is shaping up, we have so much more yet to reveal. So maybe you should stop by RTX Austin, check out our big RT Animation panel and see what other names we might drop, along with the latest gen:LOCK teaser that we’re working on. It’s going to be a giant party.
We’re also excited to announce the launch of a website for the new mobile game, RWBY: Amity Arena! CRWBY has been playing an early prototype of the game around the offices and we’re all absolutely addicted to the gameplay. If you haven’t yet heard of RWBY: Amity Arena, it’s a new strategic duel game from the renowned developer of Crusaders Quest, NHN Entertainment. If commanding RWBY characters in a real-time, high-energy strategic duel against friends or competitors across the world sounds fun to you, check out videos, photos, and more info about RWBY: Amity Arena here: https://rwbyaa.hangame.com
And if you’ve been enjoying the English translations of the RWBY anthology manga from Viz, the next one is Weiss, arriving in August!
Thanks everyone and can’t wait to see you in only 27 days at RTX Austin! ...wait only 27 days?! Guess we gotta get back to work on all the cool stuff we want to share!! See ya in Austin soon!
