Deadman Cross is the new zombie card-battler RPG from Square Enix. It’s coming to iOS and Android this winter.

In a press release sent to VG247 today, Square confirmed that the game is set in a world teeming with Deadmen, a horde of zombies that has ravaged the planet. You must hunt the undead using your rifle and add defeated zombies to your deck.

The free-to-play game will use the same card hunting mechanic from Square’s other mobile card game Guardian Cross, although this time the game uses a 3D perspective, rather than a top-down view.

It’s coming this Winter along with microtransactions for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices, and the debut trailer for will be shown at Tokyo Game Show.

The game’s official Japanese site is here.

What do you think of the concept so far?
