DescriptionLong time ago, an evil sorceress Castomira decided to conquer the world. But a good princess revolted against her, and in a great fight defeated the sorceress. But in order to completely seal the sorceress' powers, the princess had to forge a magic sword. For a long time this sword guarded the peace of the citizens of Arcus. But now the followers of Castomira stole it, and the world is facing a great peril...
This is a Gauntlet-like game: lots of action and magic, with items to collects, and many dungeons to free from monsters. The game is also viewed from an isometric perspective, typical for the genre. Choose one of four characters to battle your way through dungeons and castles, or play with a friend in a 2-player mode.

Cancelled North America releaseArcus Spirits was scheduled to be localized by Renovation Products and released in North America, for the Super Nintendo, under the name Arcus Odyssey in late 1993 or early 1994. The project was cancelled, along with two other Telenet Japan titles, Neugier: Umi to Kaze no Kōdō (to be called The Journey Home: Quest For The Throne) and Psycho Dream (to be called Dream Probe), shortly after Renovation Products was bought out by Sega.
