Brandish series

Group Description

Brandish is a series of action role-playing games by Nihon Falcom. The first three installments have an overarching story arc, starring the warrior Ares (Varik in the English version of the first game) and featuring the sorceress Dela, who initially seeks revenge against Ares for killing her master. These three games are played from an overhead perspective, heavily focus on dungeon-crawling, and have rotating screens that always position the playable character facing upwards. Brandish VT (1996) starts a different storyline with unrelated multiple protagonists, and switches the perspective to isometric.
