Here’s the official breakdown of The Last Blade 2 from Pix’n Love Games:

After the success of internationally renowned franchises, among which The King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, Super Sidekicks or the recent Metal Slug, SNK, then at the top of its games, imposes itself as a major actor in arcade gaming. Riding on a global passion, the Japanese company continues to feed the enthusiasts for fun and demanding games, in particular versus fighting titles, a domain in which it excels especially. Among them, a newcomer in 1997: The Last Blade.

Hailed by the critics, skilfully orchestrated, this weapon-based fighting game establishes itself upon release as one of the new references in its category, and shines a light on SNK’s exceptional savoir-faire when it comes to direction, as well as gameplay.

A year later, the first instalment would see its sequel in The Last Blade 2, the peak of a now legendary series. And for good reason: this sequel manages, with an absolute sense of perfection, to transcend the concept of the firstborn. The action takes place six months after the events of the first instalment and propels the player in 1864, period marking the end of the Tokugawa shogunate, commonly known as Bakumatsu. A chance to stroll through sumptuous scenery, scenes of epic confrontations where 18 warriors will fight each other, but also to experience perfectly balanced gameplay mechanics, wisely devised around the Power, Speed and EX modes.

Genuine invitation to travel, epic saga tinged with history, The Last Blade 2 is a marvel of sophistication, an undying masterpiece.

Features:

18 characters led by their destiny cross swords!

Discover an epic story set during the twilight period of the samurai!

Choose the fighting style that suits you best from the three modes “POWER”, “SPEED” and “EXTREME”.
