Gameplay

The Last Blade series is seen as a spiritual successor to SNK’s popular Samurai Shodown series, due to it being a similar 2D weapons-based fighting game.

The gameplay is characterised by two selectable fighting styles, and a unique combo system along with a “deflect” system which involves pressing the D button at an opponents attack. Upon deflecting, the opponent is left open to attack.
