Warrior Blade: Rastan Saga Episode III is an arcade beat 'em up game released by Taito Corporation in 1991. It is a weapons brawler similar to Golden Axe, and its main feature is the use of dual screens to depict the action. There are two other selectable characters besides Rastan this time around, a hireling named Dewey and a thief named Sophia. It was later re-released as part of Taito Memories.Though the release was only in Japan, the text inside the game is both in Japanese and English, allowing the player to follow the story. The storyline is similar to Sega's "Golden Axe", and uses cutscenes to narrate. It also allows selection of the path to follow. Graphics and sound vastly upgraded, the look of the hero is identical to the first game and the overall appearance of the game is very polished. The sound includes the following: grunts and clashes. The gameplay is said to be well-balanced with easy to use controls and fast paced action.
