A Neo Geo favorite, The Last Blade returns
Coming soon to the PS4 and PS Vita
A sequel to one of the most legendary late-90s Neo Geo fighting games, The Last Blade 2 will be coming to PS4 and PS Vita on May 24.
In addition to the pixel-perfect emulation from developer Code Mystics, The Last Blade 2 features local and online multiplayer, as well as cross-play and cross save functionality between devices.
The game tells of the Twilight Period of the Samurai -- about Hell’s Gate, the boundary between life and death. Four Mythological Symbols are about to fight to the death against an ultimate spirit awakened from the netherworld. Taking place during the end of the Edo period, a mystical and spectacular story unfolds.
Some 12 combatants return, including boss character Kagami from the series’ predecessor, four brand new characters and two hidden ones join the roster.
Choose the character and fighting style that is most suitable, and prepare for an epic battle.
First, you can select your favorite sword type between Power, Speed and Extreme modes. Master the Repel mechanic to counter your opponent’s attacks, and when the right time comes, activate Super Secret Slash, Hidden Secret Slash and Enigma Frenzy Attack ultimate techniques in order to change the outcome of the battle.
Through its multiplayer and cross-play features, players can now duel against each other between PS4 and PS Vita. Furthermore, save data can now be shared via cross-save functionality.
