If you enjoy hack 'n slash games with RPG elements then you may enjoy Com2uS' newest title, Third Blade. Third Blade is a Korean action RPG with a twist. The game is not so much story driven, or heavy on level-grinding gameplay -- as is the case with many Korean action RPGs -- but on hack 'n slash action with a heavy focus on weapon wielding. As you can see from the screenshot, the weapons in this game are quite massive and intimidating. There are three different wielding methods ranging from dual-wield, one-handed wield, and wielding a two-handed blade as well. If you remember the Dungeons & Dragons arcade games from the 90s you should know what type of gameplay to expect in Third Blade; but with a mix of anime-style animation. Here are some more features listed on the app's description:
