LONDON (June 19 th, 2013)Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announced that its new vampire-hunting action RPG mobile game, BLOODMASQUE TM, will be available this summer on all iOS devices (iPhone®, iPod touch®, and iPad®). To further enhance the eerie atmosphere of BLOODMASQUE, players can use their photos (headshots) when customizing their characters, allowing them to face the vampire threat head on.

BLOODMASQUE is powered by Unreal Technology, and the accompanying trailer demonstrates the game’s interactive character customization technology and gameplay footage.

In BLOODMASQUE, players take the role of hunters in vampire-ruled Paris during the late 19th century. As the dark night looms for mankind, hunters must fight the vampires’ insidious oppression and thwart their dark designs.

BLOODMASQUE allows players to snap a picture of themselves with their devices’ front-facing camera or use existing photos. The photos are then stylized to naturally fit the aesthetics of the game. As players prepare for battle, BLOODMASQUE allows them to optimize their party by choosing available characters that have been created by others.  Together, they can unite to defeat the onslaught of the vampires.

Snap a photo for your hunter’s face, then add expressions for combat and cutscenes.

Customize your look using a variety of skin tones, bone structures, and hairstyles.

Fight to free humanity from the bloodthirsty reign of the dread vampires.

Immerse yourself in the deep and engaging tale of the vampire hunters.

Unleash the vampire blood within you to devastate your foes.
