Game Profile

Originally released in 1997, The Last Blade is a fighting game set in the "Bakumatsu” period of Japanese history, where 10-plus swordsmen are fighting for different purposes.

The game is similar to its predecessors from the Samurai Showdown series released by the same company, but it differs in allowing players to choose between two sword types; the damage-focused “Power” or “Speed,” which promotes speedy play.

Other game elements include maneuvers like “Repel,” which allows players to deflect enemy attacks, and “Sublime Slash,” which cancels “Super Slice” and can be combined with “Super Secret Slice.” Don’t miss out on powerful -moves like "Super Secret Slice” and “Hidden Secret Slice.”
