"It all comes to an end... and begins once more!"
Hell's Gates — a portal which links the underworld to earth, through which demons aspire to pass and become reborn in The Last Blade — is protected by four Guardians. They maintain the balance of power on earth, halting whatever pops out of Hell until the Sealing Maiden comes to strengthen the seal between the two worlds. An elaborate effort wasted on the fragile, foolish humans, sneers Shinnosuke Kagami, one of the Guardians.
Exuding a dignified posture beneath a regal cloak, Kagami opts for a new earth order, one where he alone dominates. He starts by weakening the Gates' seal and joins the emerging demons in a slaughtering spree. The other Guardians now rank among the worthless humans as far as he's concerned.
Those who challenge Kagami face a fiery assault at the edge of his sword. Upward slashes and air-dragging leaps and dives are a fraction of the Last Blade end boss's burn-based repertoire. And that's not counting the damage dealt by the demons he let loose.
