It’s like No More Heroes and Bushido Blade had a baby

Blade Symphony has everything to do with blades and almost nothing to do with symphonies, which is probably for the best since there aren’t many good games about orchestral compositions. What makes this blade game refreshing is that it’s a full-on, strategic, sword-fighting, well, um, fighting game. The one-on-one, 3D, arena-based swordfights recall something between the hectic boss fights of No More Heroes and the big elegant duels of Bushido Blade. The game has been available in early access for a while, but as we see in the new trailer, it’s now polished and spit-shined and wiped clean of blood.
