Soul Calibur style free to play slasher Blade Lords has gone into beta in Canada and Singapore, which usually means that a worldwide iOS release isn't too far behind.
The game, which is set in feudal Japan, is all about proving you're the greatest swordsman in the world, and taking on all comers with your trusty blade to prove it.
The game uses the Unreal Engine to power its 3D on a 2D plane battles, and features a simple play style that should appeal to newcomers, while offering enough depth for fighting fans to really get their teeth into.
