"Brandish is a dungeon crawler and top-down view action RPG and adventure hybrid series developed by Nihon Falcom. Originally released in 1991 for the NEC PC-9801 and FM Towns home computers, it was later released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and PC Engine. The best known version in non-Japanese markets is the SNES port, which is the only English language version of the game. It was published by Koei, released in 1994 in Japan and a few months later (around 1995) in North America.
A sequel, titled Brandish 2: The Planetbuster, was also released in 1995. The series up to Brandish 4: Tower of the Sleeping God continued in the Japanese market up until 1998."
