SNK's masterpiece sword-fighting action game along with Samuspi

The "Gekka no Kenji" series is one of SNK's classic sword-fighting action games along with the "Samurai Shodown" series.
The first game in the Samuspi series was set in 1788, and subsequent games have been set in the years before and after that time, but "Gekka no Kenji" is set in the final days of the Tokugawa shogunate and makes use of the unique settings of the end of the Edo period, including the Shinsengumi.
"Bakumatsu Roman Special Edition: Gekka no Kenji - Tsuki ni Saku Hana, Hariyuku Hana" was released on the Neo Geo Pocket in March 2000, and is a fighting game featuring deformed versions of familiar characters from the Neo Geo Pocket.

I'm wondering what will be done about the different time settings of these two works.
I heard that the character who will be participating in the game is a favorite of everyone, but it will not be "Genbu no Ou" (the Lord of Genbu ). Too bad!
If it is Akari Ichijo, who is talked about as the real candidate, will she be voiced by Mayuko Asakimura ( now Mayuko Omimura)? Let's wait for further news!

Let's enjoy "THE LAST BLADE" again!

The story of the "Gekka no Kenji" series ended with the second act released in 1998.
The NeoPoke version was released in 2000, so you can hear the joy of SNK fans at the resurrection of the series after more than 20 years.
Both those who played the game back then and those who are new to "Gekka no Kenji" will enjoy this title, so be sure to give it a try!
