DeNA Launches Blood Battalion, Prequel to Hit Game Blood Brothers

SAN FRANCISCO – September 19, 2013 – DeNA has launched Blood Battalion™, a prequel to the hit game Blood Brothers®, for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android mobile devices. A free-to-play strategy RPG, Blood Battalion is set ages before the events in Blood Brothers and tells the story of young Galbraith’s descent into madness as he seeks to bring peace and tranquility to the land.

Blood Battalion turns up the action with massive mob battles between dozens of units. A new, dark world sets the stage for a tragic tale filled with unique gameplay. Players can summon fearsome undead soldiers to plunge the battlefield in chaos. With six classes and eight races and countless skills, players can build a custom army tuned to their play style.

Blood Brothers introduced a rich world filled with memorable characters and is deserving of a prequel,” said Yoshiki Watabe, executive producer at DeNA. “ Blood Battalion is a brand new adventure for both fans of Blood Brothers and new players enjoying their first foray into the world.”

Blood Battalion is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch and on Google Play for Android mobile devices. Download the game here: http://mobage.com/games/blood-battalion
