Remember how tragically glorious/gloriously tragic RWBY Vol. 8 was? Well, now Rooster Teeth will bring it all to home video.

So. Much. Flaming hair.

Rooster Teeth is proud to announce that they’re working with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment to bring RWBY Vol. 8 to Blu-ray and digital download. Also reported by CBR a while ago, both versions will be available on November 23, 2021 for $24.98 USD or $29.98 CAD, with order dates due by October 12, 2021. Both versions will feature English audio with English or French subtitles only. Why only those 2 subtitle options? Well, I have no idea, and Rooster Teeth doesn’t have an explanation. If you don’t speak either English or French, well, you might want to hold off on this for now.

Each pack contains 10 collectible cards that feature the cover or variant from the RWBY/Justice League comics released by DC earlier in 2021. So if any of you want these cards, you might want to hurry up and get them before they’re gone.

Official crossovers are amazing, aren’t they?


Rooster Teeth is working together with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment to bring you RWBY Vol. 8 on Blu-ray and digital download. Both versions of this anime-esque show will release on November 23, 2021. The first 20,000 buyers will also get trading cards featuring the RWBY/Justice League crossover comic book. Unfortunately, no one appears to be accepting preorders at the time of this writing. We’ll just have to wait for later to see how they’ll sell this.
