Brave Fencer Musashi (ブレイヴフェンサー 武蔵伝, Bureivu Fensā Musashiden, lit. "Brave Fencer: The Legend of Musashi") is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) in 1998 for the Sony PlayStation. The game involves real-time sword-based combat in a 3D environment, and features voice overs for most dialogue. It also features other role-playing elements such as a day-night cycle and resting to restore energy. The story follows Musashi, a young swordsman who is summoned to a parallel world to defend Allucanet Kingdom from the Thirstquencher Empire. His journey is primarily focused on obtaining the Five Scrolls which are able to enhance the powers from his sword Lumina, and searches for them while interacting with people from Allucanet and a nearby village.
Brave Fencer Musashi began production in early 1997, and was directed by Yoichi Yoshimoto, produced by Yusuke Hirata, and was scored by Tsuyoshi Sekito. The game was a departure from Square's previous role-playing games, which brought the team several difficulties during development. The game received positive critical response; reviewers praised the graphics in comparison to other similar games of the time, and found the gameplay, especially the action elements, very compelling. Musashi received a sequel in 2005 for the PlayStation 2 under the name of Musashi: Samurai Legend.
