Lord of Vermilion is a card strategy game made by Square Enix. It combines various monsters of world mythologies with that of a collectible card game. A few characters from some Square Enix franchises, such as Drakengard, are featured as cards. In addition, many cards share etymologies with summons and monsters from the Final Fantasy series. Each card has its own abilities, strengths, and weaknesses.
It was shortly followed up with its sequel, Lord of Vermilion II. An action RPG spinoff, Lord of Arcana, was released on the PlayStation Portable, with a sequel, Lord of Apocalypse, scheduled for release on the PlayStation Vita. Square Enix announced that it will launch the third arcade game Lord of Vermilion III in summer 2013.
