XSEED has just released its E3 lineup and their list of upcoming games includes Brandish: The Dark Revenant
for the PlayStation Portable! The title is slated for release in 2014, but will be only available through the PlayStation Network. Brandish: The Dark Revenant
initially came out in 2009 in Japan and is a 3D remake of the original Brandish that was release for the SNES in 1994.
Developed by Nihon Falcom (Ys Seven, Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky), the game stars Ares Toraernos, a swordsman who must escape a 40-floor labyrinth, all the while battling against many monsters, protecting himself from booby traps, and discovering ancient treasure. He also meets the sorceress Dela Delon, his arch-rival, who is after his head and is also finding a way out of the labyrinth.
