Aspyr and Rooster Teeth will be releasing RWBY: Grimm Eclipse – Definitive Edition on the Nintendo Switch this May. The four-player, online co-op, hack n' slash game came out back in 2016 as one of RT's few self-developed and published titles. It did pretty well for itself but, like a lot of games from the company, it kind of drifted off when they moved onto new projects after a few years. Now they're releasing this version, which is essentially everything they ever put into the game and more. The game will be released for the Switch on May 13th, and to cap off the announcement, the company is running a sweepstakes for a chance to win a $1000 prize pack featuring RWBY collectibles, special gear, and more. You can read more about the game and the contest below.
