Announced at the PlayStation Experience keynote today, SNK’s The Last Blade 2 is headed to our favourite handheld.

Neo-Geo classic fighting game The Last Blade 2 is headed to PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 sometime in the future Gio Corsi announced today during the PlayStation Experience keynote event.

Set after The Last Blade (the original) ended, this title features a battle that will decide the fate of the Earth – as our strongest warriors look to use the Sealing Rite to lock Death behind Hell’s Gate. The game is known to feature an (at the time) unique “deflect” (parry) system that involves deflecting an enemy’s attack and leaving them open to a counter-attack.

Details are scant at the moment, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for any updates!
