** There's also the key part of your statement: ''a more fantastic version". In an early scene we see Gilbert swat bullets from multiple machine guns away with a borrowed sword. And Edward can hack EldritchAbominations to pieces with whatever he happens to be holding. Basically, swords ''are'' practical weapons in a world where CharlesAtlasSuperpower and SuperNaturalMartialArts exist.

*There's something that bugs me about this game. It takes place in a more fantastic version of the world during the 19th century. The lead character uses swords like cutlasses, short swords, longswords, and broadswords. The sword actually did survive well into the 19th century... but swords like that would have really only seen ceremonial or military use. A wealthy British aristocrat like the lead character would have used a smallsword like a rapier for sport or self-defense.
