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 guardians?

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 view” to 3D view so that the player can enjoy a brand-new 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 ENIX booth.
