Namco Bandai’s free-to-play take on its popular one-on-one brawler Soulcalibur has just hit the App Store.

Titled Soulcalibur Unbreakable Soul, this mobile iteration of the series builds on its outlandish story mode, sending you on a quest to find the fragments of the evil Soul Edge. Before getting to the action, however, you are be treated to a tutorial of every system the game has to offer.

While Unbreakable Soul’s gameplay may look familiar at first glance, its combat is based around queuing up moves. Cards at the bottom of the screen trigger attacks. Match three or more of the same cards together and you'll get a combo.
