Starting from the fourth episode of RWBY: Ice Queendom, the show will start to tell its own story. To reflect this, there is a new key visual and trailer. The trailer shows Shion Zaiden, who is a Nightmare Hunter exclusive to the anime version of RWBY. Episode 4 will air on July 24, 2022. [Thanks, Comic Natalie!]

The trailer, which is just over a minute long and is the third for RWBY: Ice Queendom, shows Ruby, Blake, and Yang on a mission to save Weiss from a dream world. She is in the dream world because a Nightmare has trapped her in it, and the only way to get her out is to go inside of her mind to defeat it. After Shion sends them in, there are a few shots of Weiss fighting Blake on the basis of Blake being a Faunus. This seems to be based on a similar conflict between the two characters in the original show.

Hiroyuki Asada also provided the end card for episode 3. Asada is the Japanese manga artist behind Tegami Bachi, or Letter Bee. According to Asada, he felt that Shion is similar to his usual art style, and thus drew her.

RWBY: Ice Queendom is available on sites such as Crunchyroll and RoosterTeeth.
