LOS ANGELES (Feb. 13, 2014)Square Enix Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, is pleased to announce the release of its new title Deadman’s Cross TM for mobile. The game is now available for download for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

Deadman’s Cross is a zombie-themed collectible card battle RPG, and the latest creation from the same team that brought you the multimillion-download hit Guardian Cross®. The outbreak of an unknown virus has devastated the world and left it overrun by the living dead. You must hunt down these Deadmen and build your own undead horde to fight for both survival and entertainment. Take on jobs from other survivors to earn experience and resources as you seek to become the world’s foremost Deadman hunter.

Cards in Deadman’s Cross are collected through a novel hunting system. In the style of a fully 3D first-person shooter, gun down zombies wandering the city to add them to your morbid collection. From famous historical figures to people from all walks of life and animals from around the globe, the game features over 100 unique cards with stunning artwork, with many more to come in the future!

Much like Guardian Cross, Deadman’s Cross offers far more than strategic and in-depth card battles. Complete jobs for a host of colorful NPCs to reveal their unique storylines and unravel the secrets surrounding the cause of the zombie apocalypse. Team up with other players from around the world in an all-new Clan system, and together tackle missions with large-scale objectives. With all this and more, Deadman’s Cross brings new life-after-death to the card game genre!

Story

In June of 2030, a state of martial law was declared in the United States of America. But since then, both the government and media have fallen silent. All that can be heard from the confines of your apartment are the echoes of screams and gunfire. Obeying the federal order to remain indoors, you have passed the last three months alone in your home. Now, driven by survival and gripped by fear, you unbar the door and step out into the unknown.
