Twitch is having a special promotion this month where they’re giving away 20 free games to Prime subscribers. One of these game happens to be one of SNK’s classic fighting games from the ’90s — The Last Blade.

Released in 1997, the Last Blade is SNK’s second take on a samurai fighting game (after the Samurai Shodown franchise), set in a different time period and featuring a more combo-oriented system. The series — which spans two games — is notable for being the only SNK fighting series that’s yet to have a playable representative in The King of Fighters (though Kaede did appear as a special striker in KoF 2000).

As for the Twitch promotion, it sees them giving away more than 20 free games (including the Last Blade) from July 2 to July 17 as part of their Prime Day celebration. The games themselves will be available at select dates with The Last Blade being available from July 2 to August 2. Once players avail of the games, they will be theirs to keep forever.

You can learn more about the promotion from the following video and graphic from Twitch.
