DeNA Announces Blood Brothers 2 for Mobile

Blood Brothers 2Mobile games company DeNA has announced the development of Blood Brothers 2, the sequel to the original fantasy role-playing game Blood Brothers, which has been played by more than 35 million users around the world since its release in 2011. Blood Brothers 2 is set one century after the first game, and takes players back into the dark world of Arnashia, where they’ll build and recruit a new army while uncovering the game’s secrets.

In Blood Brothers 2, players will be challenged with bringing peace back to the world through a storyline filled with “loyalty, betrayal, ambition and revenge.” The game will feature both single-player content and player-vs-player battles, as well as weekly limited time events that allow users to determine the progression of the game’s story.

“Blood Brothers was massively popular, spending seven consecutive months as a top 10 app on U.S. Google Play’s top grossing chart,” said Kaz Kondo, head of DeNA Studios West, in a statement. “Having worked on the original, we know what fans liked most about the game. We want to deliver again the fast-paced RPG battles and iconic characters fans enjoyed, but we’re also introducing [a] new art style and spellbinding adventure that will be fun and fresh for everyone.”

Blood Brothers 2 will launch on iOS and Android devices in 2015. DeNA is running a pre-registration campaign for the game, giving players a chance to receive a unique in-game character upon launch. Players can signup for the campaign and these special awards here.
