Description

A compilation of both titles in the Last Blade series of 2D fighting games by SNK. Last Blade takes us back to the Bakumatsu Roman period of Japanese history at a point where one of the ancient gods of earth, enraged by humanity, attempts to open the gates of hell and eliminate all life on earth. To prevent such apocalypse most of the other gods reincarnate into human beings and converge along with other fellow mortals in a series of one-on-one fights in order to stop all hell from breaking loose. Last Blade 2 rejoins most of the characters as a new enemy threatens to open the gates of hell once again and resolves the main plot threads behind the characters of the original game.

Both games share a unique weapon-oriented fighting system, which involves different slashing and parrying moves. All the characters can unleash super moves by charging up their power bars which can be configured to deliver different power-up abilities and change the playing style similar to games like Street Fighter Alpha 3.

The games are straight ports of the NEO-GEO versions, updated to include online play and they also include other goodies such as character artwork galleries and other bonus features.
