NHN Entertainment partners with RWBY creator Rooster Teeth on a new mobile game

NHN Entertainment has partnered with media company Rooster Teeth to develop a new mobile game based on one of the latter's animation series.

Rooster Teeth is best known for its long-running webseries Red vs Blue and its anime-inspired TV series RWBY. It has previously brought RWBY characters to NHN's Crusaders Quest during an event in May 2017.

Details are thin at the moment, though it has been described as a "real-time strategic duel". While the IP NHN will use has yet to be announced, it would be a fairly safe bet to say it will be RWBY, given the popularity of the series.

Pleasing gamers

"We're excited to work with Rooster Teeth again on a project in 2018," said NHN Entertainment CEO Ujin Chung.

"It was originally our passionate fans that brought us together for the Crusaders Quest and RWBY collaboration, and the project we're working on now is sure to please both our gamers in the Hangame community and Rooster Teeth’s growing global audience."

The partnership is the latest in a string of deals by NHN with other IP holders. It teamed up with FoxNext on a Kingsman game in August 2017, and with Sony for a Jumanji game in December 2017.
