Labyrinth Cross Blood Infinity from Demon Gaze developer Experience uses a job system just like many other RPGs. However, instead of picking "fighter" or "mage" you pick the blood of a historic hero.
Ushikawa (Yoshitsune no Minamoto) is an attacker that uses various weapons and powerful skills to annihilate enemies. Brunhild (Jeanne d’Arc) is a technical knight that excels in offense and defense. She can pierce enemies with her spear and defend allies with her shield. Amaterasu (Himiko) is a powerful wizard that can attack with explosive fire magic.
There are 23 blood types in Labyrinth Cross Blood Infinity. Players can select a "main blood" and a "sub blood" type to create over 500 different types of characters. The game has 230 different types of enemies to defeat and 1,800 items to collect. You can use junk items and through the game’s crafting system create strong weapons.
Labyrinth Cross Blood was first released for PC and then Xbox 360. The PlayStation Vita version has new super deformed character artwork.

… and the new super deformed artwork.
Of course this isn’t the only addition in Labyrinth Cross Blood Infinity. Experience also made a new comical storyline featuring Shizuna, the game’s heroine, and a crossover event with Students of the Round.
Experience also made changes to the interface to support the Vita’s touchscreen. Infinity Mode, another Vita exclusive, lets players crawl through dungeons with five characters instead of six.
Labyrinth Cross Blood Infinity comes out in Japan on April 25.
