Bravoman was released in May 1988 in Japan.
The subtitle of this game translates from Japanese as 'Unequaled Man'.
This game is called 'Berabow Man' by Namco though this is likely a mistranslation as the later NEC PC-Engine port is called 'Bravoman'. The name 'BERABOW' appears in the default high score list.
In Stage 8, the main character from "Pistol-Shogun - Pistol Daimyo no Bouken
" (which was released 2 years later) must be fought.
Bravoman did a cameo appearance in Namco x Capcom released for the Sony PS2 in 2005.
