Crunchyroll Games, the interactive division of one of the leading anime providers, has announced the launch of its brand new mobile game; Bloodline: The Last Royal Vampire. Based on the popular and quite entertaining Chinese graphic novel series named Bloodline, and developed by Shanda Shengqu Games, Bloodline will be released worldwide except for Asia.
Bloodline: The Last Royal Vampire follows the titular vampire Lilo and her companion Ren on their journey to battle a militaristic order called the Holy Land. Players can collect over 400 characters to form a team and engage in tactical turn-based card game combat through the game’s story or against other players. PvP can be fought solo in the Arena or Tower of Fate, or as a team in real-time Guild Wars and massive inter-server wars.
It would be a safe bet to say that Bloodline isn’t very well known in the West, with even a reliable Google search requiring a lot of prompting to find it, so to help launch this new series to global audiences, Crunchyroll Games swung for the fences and a big name collaboration.
During the pre-registration period and for a limited time after launch, Bloodline: The Last Royal Vampire will team up with Attack on Titan, the globally popular anime that succeeds despite its rather polarizing main character. During the limited-time event, players can collect a variety of characters such as Eren, Mikasa, and Levi, as well as participate in themed dungeons and earn Attack on Titan cosmetics to customize in-game profiles.
When discussing the launch and collaboration, Crunchyroll Games General Manager Terry Li said, “Bloodline is a gripping story pitting good against evil in an epic battle for survival that makes it an exciting mobile game. We can’t wait to unleash the action on players. We are deeply honored to work with Shanda Shengqu Games and Kodansha to bring Attack on Titan characters into the world of Bloodline and create a truly epic launch experience for fans. We know the massive cast of characters, deep story, and endless gameplay will keep fans coming back for more.”
Bloodline: The Last Royal Vampire will launch this summer on the App Store and Google Play.
