NES Game - I believe it was never released stateside.

Hello community of Retro Uprising.

I need your help in identifying a game that I played when I was a kid on my famicom. Let me put the details in point form for easy read:
-NES game
-Was in an oriental language (japanese/chinese)
-setting is fantasy, ancient times (with monsters, undead etc)
-Hero is some kind of warrior whose primary weapon is a sword with an attack animation that spins (only spins in sidescrolling dungeons only)
-Similar to Zelda 2 layout, top-down overworld map view where you travel around, sidescrolling dungeons/stages with exception some stages where you are in a third person view
-Final boss is a skeletal dragon/dinosaur
-Stages on the overworld map were represented by Japanese Torii (i think)
-Your sword "levels up" as you defeat enemies with the final level giving you a ranged attack
-You find other weapons in the game like ninja stars (shoots 3 at once), a fireball cannon, a spinning top (makes you spin to attack [think Samus from smash bros]), a ranged attack that shoots out some japanese word etc.

I remember this was one of the more difficult games I've played in my life when I was a kid and would love to play it again. I am going through the retro game list on the website hoping i can find it too.

Thank you so much guys. Have you ever played it? I could not understand the language but looking around... seems like there is a fan translation which is great.
