SEGA Brings Samurai BloodShow to the App Store

SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON - September 1, 2011

SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® of Europe Ltd. is proud to announce their Samurai BloodShow App for iPad™, iPhone® and iPod® touch is now available on the App Store. Eager generals are tasked to build an army of katana-wielding warriors, horsemen, sorcerers and even scantily clad samurais, and mobilize them strategically to defend their honor in twelfth-century feudal Japan.

Within the game, players battle enemy armies across 100 different levels, deploying their warriors strategically to maximize decapitations and defend their army general. By winning battles, players earn rarer, more powerful warriors which they can build into their deck. If players want to acquire new warriors prior to winning these battles, they can also purchase them via In-App Purchases.

Test your army’s might in a face-off against close rivals via a local Bluetooth connection, or challenge a mysterious opponent online via Game Center.

The Samurai BloodShow App is available for $1.99 from the App Store on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
