As part of the Summer 2022 anime calendar, RWBY: Ice Queendom Season 1 is currently working its way through its formal anime premiere. With the release of a new poster and trailer for RWBY: Ice Queendom Episode 4, the anime is preparing for its upcoming new story arc that takes the series in a new direction.

Fans were informed of everything that will happen over the next three weeks because the first three episodes of its official anime debut already had an early premiere before the Summer 2022 season got underway. However, they are hinting at some significant changes.

The latest poster is chilling and showcases some character abilities.

RWBY: Ice Queendom’s new trailer

The most recent trailer and poster for RWBY: Ice Queendom suggest a new plot for the franchise that features Weiss’ Nightmare as well as brand-new appearances and circumstances for each of the characters that fans got to witness in action with the original animated series.

Fans may have noted some parallels between the anime series and the original animated series, but it appears that Ice Queendom will soon take a divergent path.

Below is the most recent RWBY: Ice Queendom trailer:

On June 30, RWBY: Ice Queendom had its US premiere on Crunchyroll, giving viewers a chance to watch the first three episodes as a one-hour special before it debuted in Japan.

Viewers are introduced to the planet of Remnant and its four major characters in the official premiere episode of RWBY: Ice Queendom: Ruby Rose, Yang Xiao Long, Blake Belladonna, and Weiss Schnee.

The first three episodes of the show are currently available to viewers as separate 24-minute portions after the series’ July 3 Japanese television launch on Tokyo MX.

Why Ruby Is Weiss’ Best Partner

Weiss and Ruby attempt to work alone to defeat their first Grimm in the woods, which puts them at a severe disadvantage. Weiss convinces Ruby to move out of the way so she may use her dust-enhanced sword to slay the Grimm in a single blow after realizing they must cooperate.

Weiss’ scheme works, but at a price: she ends up getting a portion of the woods on fire and blames Ruby for it. Ruby demonstrates her prowess with her sword once more and refuses to let Weiss talk down to her. Weiss replies that Ruby has a temper to keep her in control.

Soon after, a Raven Grimm attacks Ruby and Weiss. This Grimm is more difficult to kill than the others that Weiss has already eliminated. After being pursued out of the woods, they ultimately run into Yang and Blake, who join forces with them to defeat the Raven.

Both girls are unable to defeat the Raven Grimm on their own, but Ruby convinces Weiss to add her sword to her scythe for a potent strike that turns out to be very successful. Weiss acknowledges that Ruby is aware of her abilities while Ruby takes advantage of the chance to show them to her. Though their relationship is not off to the best of starts in RWBY: Ice Queendom, Ruby’s ability to patiently and kindly deal with Weiss’ narcissism shows that she is the ideal companion for Weiss.
