LOS ANGELES (July 25th, 2013), Square Enix Inc, is thrilled announce BLOODMASQUE(tm) - an innovative new action RPG for iOS devices - is now available via Apple's App Store for USD $6.99.

Set in an alternate vision of 19th century Paris, BLOODMASQUE pits players against a vampire-controlled society. Hunters can use their iOS device's built-in camera to scan their face into the game and appear as the main character. Additional noteworthy features include:

Control finesse: BLOODMASQUE was designed with the touch screen in mind. Intuitive controls let you tap to attack and swipe to dodge as you combat a diverse monster's gallery.

Spectacle: Unreal Technology powered action renders large-scale combatants and beautifully drawn stages smoothly and in terrific detail. Stirring orchestral arrangements accompany the action and take the sense of immersion to new highs.

Customization: Take a photo or use an existing one to see yourself in action against the vampires, or mix and match facial features, hairstyles, and skin tones to create a character all your own. Add pleased and angry expressions to see your hunter react in cinematic scenes and combat.

Comrades-at-arms: Recruit hunters other players have made and fight evil alongside the familiar faces of your friends.

Longevity: Full completion is timed at up to 20 hours – with a further series of challenging combat trials available after the main story ending. An array of in-game purchases help add to the experience and further expand options for players.

BLOODMASQUE is supported on the following iOS devices: iPhone 4S and above, iPod touch (5th generation) and above, and iPad 2 and above.
