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.┬áThe 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!
