Rastan Saga or Rastan as it was known in North America was released in the arcades in 1987 by Taito. It was an instant hit as fantasy was huge back then with youngsters buying into Dungeons and Dragons, Fighting Fantasy books and of course Arnold Schwarzenegger as Conan the Barbarian helped its popularity !
