imageSquare Enix just re-released Threads of Fate on PlayStation Network in Japan, which means it’s time to move on to another PsOne classic.


Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto announced Legend of Mana will be their next Game Archives title over Twitter. Usually, Twitter-nounced PsOne classics take around a month to appear on PlayStation Network.


Legend of Mana, Threads of Fate, and Vagrant Story have not been announced for North America at this time.

    rar, loved Legend of Mana, last really good Mana game in my opinion, sadly T_T’

    • Agreed. A bit of a slip from Seiken Densetsu 3 (I’m being generous), but still a relatively solid, fun little ARPG.

      • Justinzero

        You guys didn’t think Children was good?

      • Rciwws

        I’d pay anything to buy Seiken Densetsu 3 in official english for the first time. Number 1 best SNES game.

    • kupomogli

      I agree. The only thing I didn’t like about it was there was no real interconnected world or storyline. The gameplay was excellent. Combat system was well done, the customization where you altered weapons/armor/instruments, raise your own pets to help fight, and customize your robots AI. The game was a bit too easy, but atleast there is the option to change all enemies to level 99.

    Aw, where’s my Chrono Cross?

    • lostinblue

      I have it via custom firmware.

      Bought my PSP for just that actually. I had a promise to myself that whatever portable machine ran Chrono Cross at full speed first would be purchased on the hour. And so it was.

    Need Racing Lagoon and Tobal #2… ENGLISH.

    Squaresoft’s two biggest crimes in the 90’s for not releasing them to the U.S.

  • Amazing graphics and music, but it was way too easy, and the weapon fusion and golem systems were impossible to figure out.

  • Oh god hype.
    Ever since….it was released, I was never able to play it.
    This just made my day.

  • Square-Enix hates dollars!

  • RAVENKam

    The art design blew me when this originally came out but I didn’t buy it due its lack of narrative. Funny how your perceptions change over time. I’d buy it ‘now’ just for the visuals if a Euro PSN release is in the works (unlikely).

  • EvilAkito

    Man, Legend of Mana is a game that I wanted to love. I tried so hard. And I still want to love it because it’s such a beautiful game. But I just can’t! I hate it! It’s one of those games that makes me wonder why Akitoshi Kawazu is ever given any form of creative control. It’s nothing personal against the man; it’s just that he is the master of implementing horribly flawed RPG play mechanics.

    Don’t forget Xenogears, which is also inexplicably available in Japan but no other region.

  • Kris

    We NEED Legend of Mana in the US.
    Seriously, I don’t want to pay 50 for a retail copy. Get this thing on the US PSN! (In addition to the tons of other Square games not yet available)

  • memoryofwater

    This is one of my favorite RPGs. I felt the same way some of you did the first time around, but the nonlinear narrative is actually one of the things I wound up liking best about the game. Once you get the hang of exploring and adding to your encyclopedias, Legend of Mana has a very cohesive and beautiful world.

    Plus, it’s so laid back. It’s more about day to day life in a fairytale than any Big Epic Adventure and I like that. The world map theme is so soothing.

  • thebanditking

    why are so many of these missing from the NA/EU PS Store? I swear its like S-E NA hates money or something (though not as much as Namco)…
