DeNA Co., Ltd. (TSE: 2432) announced today that it has launched Blood Brothers, an epic role-playing game set in a dark fantasy universe, for free on the Mobage™ social games platform for iOS™ devices worldwide. Blood Brothers introduces a unique RPG gameplay system that pairs simple battle and combat mechanics with deep customization and character building. Blood Brothers has held a spot in the App Store™’s Top 10 free iPhone® apps chart, as well as in Google Play™’s Top 10 Grossing apps chart since its launch on Android mobile devices in August.

Blood Brothers gives players everything they could want in an RPG experience on-the-go – there’s deep customization, an entertaining story, hordes of gruesome monsters and a massive, diverse world that’s ready to be explored,” said Neil Young, Director of DeNA and CEO of DeNA’s U.S. subsidiary ngmoco, LLC.

In Blood Brothers, players take on the role of a hero who has been turned into a vampire, and seek out allies and bind them in a ritual of blood. Players can choose from knights, mages, ninjas, goblins, dwarves, and many others to build a powerful party and stand against a mighty empire in a tale of vengeance and rebirth. Blood Brothers is updated regularly, giving players plenty of new areas to explore, and new and fearsome creatures to fight and recruit.

Blood Brothers is available now as a free download at
