Japan gets Secret of Mana on the Virtual Console in September

By Spencer . August 29, 2008 . 7:12am

The monthly line up of scheduled Virtual Console games is steadily shrinking. Quality is compensating for quantity in September since Japan’s forecast includes Space Invaders for the Super Famicom, Mario Golf 64, Forgotten Worlds, and, most notably, Secret of Mana. The best part about Secret of Mana is gathering three people to play the game […]

A Game To Remember: Secret of Mana

By Rolando . October 26, 2007 . 6:46am

If I were to ask you what you remember most about Secret of Mana, what would your response be? Would it be Hiroki Kikuta's score of the game and how it's perhaps the best score you've ever heard in an SNES game as evidenced by the game's opening? Would it be the tragic classical tale […]

Screen Gallery – Heroes of Mana

By Spencer . June 19, 2007 . 9:29am

Square-Enix released a new batch of screenshots from the US version of Heroes of Mana. After playing Dawn of Mana I have my doubts about the Mana series, but Heroes of Mana has a new take on it. As Roli explains in his playtest it bucks the action RPG formula and plays like a touch […]

Defending Dawn of Mana, the Black Sheep of Mana

By Rolando . June 6, 2007 . 7:40pm

It seemed as if Square had totally ditched the Mana series, which served as one of the major three pillars of Square (the other two being Final Fantasy and SaGa). Seiken Densetsu 3 was considered by many Mana enthusiasts and fanboys to be the last great Mana that ever existed, leaving future titles like Legend […]

Has “Mana” lost its magic?

By Spencer . May 31, 2007 . 8:26pm

Dawn of Mana has been out in North America for a week now much to the disdain of video game critics. I’ve been playing it too and as much as I want to say something glowing about it I can’t. Ok… well it’s easy on the eyes and Square-Enix did a good job transitioning the […]

Screen Gallery: Dawn of Mana

By Spencer . May 1, 2007 . 2:44pm

It’s hard to ignore the caustic criticism that Dawn of Mana has received since it was released in Japan. I’ll admit that after hearing that the game was “broken” by people who imported it I cancelled my order. As a long time Mana fan, I wonder if people were expecting another Secret of Mana and […]

Lush Dawn of Mana screenshots

By Spencer . March 26, 2007 . 8:30pm

A lot of Square-Enix’s North American buzz is about Heroes of Mana today, but before you mass your army of rabites, Dawn of Mana is going to be released on the Playstation 2 on May 22. For a limited time people who pre-order the game pick up “Breath of Mana” a CD with samples of […]

Square-Enix announced that the strategy RPG / RTS hybrid, Heroes of Mana, is coming to North America in “late summer”. In the game you command an army of rabites to gather resources with the touch screen and summon armies of mana monsters to attack. Roli O. has an extensive write up about Heroes of Mana, […]

The Truth about Heroes of Mana

By Rolando . March 20, 2007 . 11:22am

Of all the fans of a given video game series/franchise, Mana fans have had it worse. Once Mana fans realized that the original Secret of Mana games would never come to be, many became distant with the franchise and have developed a jaded look in any new Mana entry that wasn’t Secret of Mana or […]

Dawn of Mana box art

By Spencer . March 2, 2007 . 6:13am

Square-Enix has been pretty quiet about Dawn of Mana, it seems like all of the attention is going to Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales. Either way it’s getting ready for a release in late May and here is the North American box art. Notably different than the Japanese box art, which just had a serene […]
