Last Blade Discussion

Its truly one of SNK's Masterpieces, it's beautiful to look at, and the atmosphere is just amazing. And the sequel just made it better Smile

I'd like them to make another Last Blade game - there's always the chance that it might actually be better! - if its worse we still have the first 2 games forever.

I wish SNK would bring out more new fighting franchises though too.

I've got to admit I do slightly prefer the sequel. There's very little to choose between them it's just that Kojiroh and Hibiki are my favourite characters of the series.

So, any Kenshin fans here? I once heard that the creator of the series referred to Last Blade as "the Kenshin game he would have liked to have made". Not sure if that is true, but it does have a lot of similarities. Being a huge fan of both the game and Kenshin, I think that's pretty damn cool, in the same way that I loved Samurai Shodown paying homage to Ninja Scroll!

I loved the Rurouni Kenshin series, especially the movie...haven't seen the OVAs yet.
Also loved Ninja Scroll.

The OVA's - the ones released as "Betrayal" and "Trust" in the US you mean? Or the one released in 2002 called "Seishounen". Betrayal and Trust are fantastic, absolute classics (albeit very different to the series), whereas Seishounen is not all that good and not a fitting ending to the series. I really can't recommend Betrayal and Trust enough though, they are nigh on perfect imho.

Washizuka rules and is one of my fave characters... he's pretty much Saitoh Hajime, and that is just plain awesome! Grin

hell yeah! last blade kicks ass!
wonderful backgrounds, graphics and music and the atmosphere/the setting in general is great. one of my favourite games on the neo and it sure is pure fun. I even prefer it to samsho 2.but I still need to get the sequel.

Definitely one of the most visually impressive games on Neo although I daresay I was never good at the LB games. System is different from what I'm used to.

To anyone who enjoys the music in Last Blade I highly recommend the arrange album. It's fantastic, and so is the LB2 arrange album.
 
Kazuya_UK
Yea, I have them both. I've often lest them running while I work at the PC, a lot of it is quite relaxing.

The high score forum is open and there will be a high score challenge for every current game of the week. You can find the Last Blade thread here:

Anyone want to post their highest scores on this game? Terry

Just found this on the Playstation version

The Playstation exclusive features
- Animated opening movie.
- A Bonus Mode where you can view character movies, stories, and profiles.
There is an illustration gallery drawn by SNK artists, a four frame manga
(comics) written by fans, and illustrations drawn by fans.
- Three secret characters not found in other versions.
- One button certain kill techniques and two button super secret skills. Uses
the top four L and R buttons.
- Sudden Death Mode, where life is slowly drained while fighting.
- Weapons won't fall out of the character's hands.



Three secret Characters - sounds intriguing......

There's not much I can add that hasn't already been said. Last Blade truly is a work of art. Graphics, music, gameplay are perfection. One feature I always love is those little intro sequences before each stage. They really add something to the overall atmosphere of the game. I'm really not keen on the idea of Playmore making a new Last Blade game.


I think it might be interesting to bring those amazing designers at Treasure to work on it if it ever happened - after all, they make the very good (if limited due to the DS' control interface) Bleach games on the DS.

Just a thought Smile

Seeing as though DIMPS was founded by Takashi Nishiyama (who was the top producer along with Hiroshi Matsumoto at the old SNK) and made up of old SNK staff, they should do it (please don't let Yuki Enterprises do it though!).

I suppose if it was done properly The Last Blade 3 could be a great game. I'm still a bit nervous that whoever made it would screw it up. Maybe that's being a bit too negative though. In general I'd rather see a completely new fighting game with all new characters which perhaps is inspired by The Last Blade and other games.

That Bleach game does look pretty good I have to admit.

Its a nice little game - only problems are the control interface and the shoe-horned in DS touch screen features that no-one would want to use.... unless they were cheap!

Graphics are nice though and its online....

I tried Last Blade and Last Blade 2 it was epic. I hope they make Last Blade 3 in the future.
