A couple of months ago we got the news that Grimvalor was on its way to iOS and were pretty stoked to see it. Well, now we know it's launching on October 10th for £6.99/$6.99, and you can pre-order on the App Store for £4.99/$4.99.

For those who don't know, Grimvalor is a hack 'n' slash 2.5D platformer (ish) which promises fast-paced action, deep gameplay mechanics, and an awesome stand-alone story.

It takes place in a dark, fantasy world where you play as a lone warrior tasked with restoring a corrupted realm. You need to explore the lands you journey through, discover and upgrade all sorts of equipment, level up your character, pay attention to enemy fight patterns, and more.

Whether you want to use the game's touch controls or play through it using your MFi controller, the choice is yours. If you do decide to use the touchscreen, its controls are all fully customisable and there's cloud saving between devices, phew.
