SANTA CLARA, Calif.  – Nov. 28, 2012 – Who says pirates have to be dirty, smelly sea dogs? Aeria Mobile, a subsidiary of leading free-to-play publisher Aeria Games, has let loose a new breed of buccaneers with Pirate Maidens, an adventurous and alluring collectible card game (CCG) out now on iOS devices.

Hundreds of finely detailed and visually stunning collectible cards await players as they rescue maidens to join their crew. Three factions in the game each offer their own storylines, and players are able to freely switch between each story whenever they want without losing progress. This flexible structure gives Pirate Maidens a deep and engaging overarching plot.

“Aeria Mobile is excited to release one of the most unique entries in the CCG genre,” said Colin McKee, General Manager, Aeria Mobile. “The distinct look and style of Pirate Maidens, in combination with its non-linear structure and wealth of features, is sure to be a hit with mobile gamers this holiday season.”

As players collect and level up their pirate crew through battle, they will have the opportunity to create or join guilds, which can challenge others worldwide. In addition, players will have access to boss battles, raid events, and special limited-time stories as they make their way through the game. These gameplay features are topped off with dazzling, detailed animations and optional Japanese voiceovers for every pirate in the game.

Pirate Maidens is available as a free download for iOS devices on the iTunes store.
