Rose Thorn (Japanese: 悪魔の弾丸 Demon's Bullet) is an apocalyptic RPG-fighting title, and a spin-off of the Rose Warriors game series. Rose Thorn takes place in a pocket timeline of the New Earth universe, where the events of the first title unfolded differently, and Dialga and Palkia unleashed a deadly plague that mutated the New Universe. Chronologically, the game takes place simultaneously with Rose Warriors: Vengeance and Bullet Warriors, though does so in an alternate timeline.
Rose Thorn is dedicated to the memory of Monty Oum, the creator of RWBY, who died on February 1, 2015.
Komaru Naegi wakes up one day within the restored city of Mezameru. She wanders through the city where the Rose Warriors reside and help to restore before finding a dark tunnel. Curious, Komaru decides to investigate the tunnel and walks into it.
When she exits the tunnel, she finds herself in Mezameru once more, but this time back when it was destroyed and decrepit. She turns around to return but finds that an invisible forcefield blocks entrance from one side.
Rose Thorn is an open-world combat fighter with puzzle elements. In the game, players travel around a large map where they must complete objectives. In order to do this, players must use combat and puzzle-solving skills.
The Trainer and Janine both appeared as minor NPC's in the original Rose Warriors, alongside the female version of Robin. Both Janine and Trainer, as well as the male Robin, appear as three of the major, playable protagonists in Rose Thorn, alongside Komaru Naegi and Takashi Komuro, who make their first appearances within the Rose Warriors series.
|Komaru Naegi comes from the "prime" version of New Earth, and travelled to the alternate version via a strange tunnel. Komaru's main weapon is a megaphone gun, carried with her ever since the Ultimate Despair incident.|
The unnamed Trainer was once a teacher of various yoga and fitness techniques. Her techniques have since aided her in keeping her alive, as has her ability to create orbs of golden energy to defeat the threats that plague her world.
