Following KOF 2001 ACA NeoGeo, SNK and Hamster have released The Last Blade 2 ACA NeoGeo ($3.99) on iOS and Android as this week’s new ACA NeoGeo series release. The Last Blade 2 originally released back in 1998. The classic fighter featured four gods aiming to seal Hell’s Gate. It brought in new gameplay systems, and fighters can use desperation and super desperation moves that can also be chained into enemy moves you’ve cancelled. As of this writing, the iOS 16 loading issue that affects some games has not been addressed, but waiting for the leaderboards check to fail solves the issue for me. It takes about 20 seconds on iOS 16, and it works fine on iOS 15. Hopefully Hamster and SNK can address the current issues that affect some players as reported on our forum thread in updates soon. Check out a screenshot from the Android version of The Last Blade 2 ACA NeoGeo below.
