Nihon Soft Hanbai

Blade Land [PC Engine – Cancelled]

Blade Land is a cancelled RPG that was in development by Nihon Soft Hanbai / Manjuydo for the PC Engine around 1990. For its time it looked quite original: with quirky characters and enemies moving around a modern-day city setting it reminds us of Shigesato Itoi’s Mother / Earthbound series. The game was shown in a few gaming magazines at the time, such as Famitsu and PC-Engine magazine: if you are able to translate these japanese scans let us know if there is some interesting information in there!
