Since the beginning of time, the world has been divided into two: the world of the living, and the world of the dead. Between these two worlds stands the Gate of Hell. Four guardians watch over the Gate of Hell. Represented by a blue dragon, a white tiger, a red phoenix, and a green turtle, they have always stood guard at the portal between the two worlds. Until now...
Last Blade is a weapons based 2D fighting game from SNK. In the matches, each fighter has a health bar well as a super meter. The health bar consists of two bars, one superimposed on the other. Both bars must be depleted for a character to be defeated. If the match timer ends before either fighter is defeated the one with more health remaining is considered the victor. Fighters have an array of standard and special techniques available, as well as desperation and super desperation moves.
Players can choose from twelve fighters as well as two modes to fight in. Power mode allows fighters to do more damage per attack as well as do slight damage on blocked attacks. Power mode fighters also have access to unblockable attacks and can use super desperation moves when their super meters are full and their health bars are low. Speed mode, on the other hand, allows fighters to chain moves together and cancel them into specials. Speed mode fighters cannot use super desperation moves, but can perform combo specials when their super meters are full. Combo specials are a chain of very fast attacks executed together that can do at least as much damage as a super desperation move.
Last Blade fighters also have access to a repel move. When this move is performed the character leans back and returns. During the leaning backward animation if a strike connects with the character that attack is repelled, leaving the attacker open for a counterattack. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
