mzl.hafvaejw.320x480-75We already posted about a bunch of games that hit the New Zealand App Store super early this morning, and another surprise just popped up that'll likely be hitting the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern tonight. As shown at E3, Square Enix's Bloodmasque is a game that seems to wholly revolve around the gimmick that you can take your own photo then apply it as the facial texture to your in-game character. Now, as someone who typically will just buy whatever has the most holographic packaging when shopping for personal hygiene products, I'm probably a little too excited for this, but, whatever. I love a good gimmick.

Check out the trailer to see Bloodmasque in action:

We're downloading the game now, and are going to get deeper into it with some first look impressions as soon as we can.

International App Store Link: Bloodmasque, $9.99

        hi, not sure if you would know but any news on "Buddy & Me" by Sunbreak Games?

  • defunct32

    It's out in the Singapore app store for 8.98, I saw "offer in-app purchase" oh Square... But this kinda looks good I can't resist, buying it later tomorrow!

    Please don't drain my wallet Squeenix! I will happily buy your games at 15, 20 dollars a throw, but if it needs IAP, I don't care good it is...

    *fingers crossed* it's not required!

    • defunct32

      As long as it's not PTW IAPs I'm fine with it.

  • Taclys

    It looks like Infinity Blade based game play. Is that true? Or am I missing something? $10 is a steep price for an Infinity Blade knock off.

    • metalcasket

      It's actually $6.99. It's $9.99 in NZ.

      • Taclys

        Ah, I see. Same symbol, got confused. Still, is it just a knock off?

        Prolly should go read the other articles.

  • ImJPaul

    Awesome. I really hope this hits tonight. Everything else just isn't really my style.

  • eventide

    Infinity Blade 17?

    Yeah...no thanks.

  • icoker

    how big is the app in terms of file size?

  • Morgan01

    Graphics look nice, but would like to hear feedback about gameplay. Also, since it's by SE, I have concerns about possible IAPs since their games are mostly over priced compared to most IOS titles.
