Who thinks it’s a good idea to publish multiple PSP games in 2014? Xseed, that’s who. They’re bringing PSP dungeon-crawler Brandish: The Dark Revenant to North America this year.
A remake of an old PC-98 game by Falcom, Brandish: The Dark Revenant puts you in the role of a swordsman named Ares Toraernos, as he goes through over 40 floors of monsters, traps and puzzles, in order to escape the confines of a labyrinth. Koei later published the game on the SNES.
“Along the way he repeatedly encounters his arch-rival, the voluptuous sorceress Dela Delon, who’s just as interested in claiming the bounty on his head as she is in escaping the maze herself,” says Xseed’s press release.
Brandish: The Dark Revenant will be released as a downloadable game for PSP. The game is scheduled for release this year, but Xseed haven’t announced a price yet.
Note: Thanks to everyone that pointed out the original Brandish was on PC-98, not SNES!
