The Last Blade is finally slicing down onto the European Wii Virtual Console on 2nd August. That means you've got a week to make sure your swords are sharpened up before it's released.

The 2D fighter thrusts you into the Bakumatsu era of Japanese history. You can choose between two different sword types per character, so it's up to you whether you want to win with pure might or dash around with speed.

The Neo Geo classic is thought by many to be one of the best fighting games out there, and it can be yours for 900 Nintendo Points. Here's our review of The Last Blade if you're unconvinced.

Are you tempted to join the fight?

Thanks to Bass_X0 for the tip.

I've heard of most fighters on Neo Geo but I can't say I've even heard of this one.

Alright! Europe gets another great Wii Virtual Console title. I remember reading about this game back in the days but never got a chance to play it.
