SQUARE ENIX® are excited to unveil a new zombie card battle
RPG for mobile devices: Deadman’s Cross™.
Following on from last year’s release of Guardian
Cross®, this new game is set in a world infested with Deadmen,
a race of zombies that have devastated the world. Use your rifle to
hunt zombies within the time allotted. Acquire the cards of any
zombies you defeat and use them to build your own deck.
There are over 300 monster cards to find, and the strongest
players can face-off against each other in an online
coliseum… can you create the greatest-even team of
In “GUARDIAN CROSS”, the player hunts around to
collect cards and this unique mechanic will come back to the latest
game whilst the hunter’s vision has changed from “top

feel from his hunting actions. There are other new systems which
have been implemented together with visually impressive zombie
cards. With all these additional elements, the new game will have a
very different appeal to “GUARDIAN CROSS”.
The game is free-to-play and will be released as a free download
this Winter for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices. A
first-look trailer for DEADMAN’S CROSS will be shown at this
year’s Tokyo Game Show, at the Mega Theatre in the SQUARE
