Bloodstroke will be available at the end of the year for iOS.
Pricing is unknown, but it will be paid game.
It looks like game has IAPs, how good or bad they are implemented remains to be seen.

Info was taken from description of first video (in German) and commentary.
I will correct if something is wrong when more information becomes available.

Personal thoughts
I love the art style but that "pay to continue" after you die looks sketchy to me amongst other "pay to" things..

Looking wicked and bloody. Love the art-style and the defense-type gameplay in a pseudo-runner progression. And to top it off, John Woo.

I really like Moon Shark's Verticus too, so i hope they do a good job here as well.

Basically, if you see pigeons/doves used in slo mo in a sort of action/beauty shot to highlight some scenes, that is a John Woo film.

Even Bloodstroke's intro has them birdies.

Also, dual pistols. John Woo made them mainstream in today's action films.
