    Ahhh, I stopped playing it. It was fun and nothing seemed unfair, even energy restored pretty fast. But I just couldn’t get into it that long. Plus it drained my battery a lot for some reason.

      Battery drain is a big reason I don’t play phone games, but #1 is the fact that my phone gets really hot when playing graphically intensive games. I kind of wish this got ported to Vita or something.

        Yeah, a Vita version would be ideal, Hopefully it’s something they’ll consider if the game does well enough.

  • BlackC#Bro

    Any news on the Android version?

  • MK

    They should release this and FF Agito in English

  • Nana

    So far, it seems surprisingly decent. Even I have to admit it.

    I will see how long that holds, or if the hooks come out later.

    Still doesn’t feel like a real mana game, but it’s a good bandage for the pain of not getting a real mana game since Legend of Mana :/

    And it IS better than the PS2 Mana.

    • wow. even you?
      If you enjoyed LOM/SOM, me thinks most players would find this one beyond relative

  • Black Is a Status

    Japan gets all the good stuff

  • Yan Zhao

    How about a 3DS version or Vita version. WHere it belongs.
