Last year, it looked like Square Enix were up to something with the Mana series when we saw that they registered “Rise of Mana” in Europe, followed by a trademark for it being filed in Japan. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine reveals that Rise of Mana will be an upcoming mobile game.

According to the magazine report, the protagonist of the game fell from the heavens and landed on earth, and seems to have been made into a body that is half angel and another half demon.
Rise of Mana’s main town is called Miste, where you’ll be able to purchase weapons, items, and raise demon pets who’ll be supporting you throughout your adventures.
The basic weapons are made of sword, spear, and bow. The magazine also reports that up to eight players will be able to play together in real-time action. The game’s new system will also involve the ability to switch between angel and demon modes according to your situation.
Rise of Mana will be free-to-play with micro-transactions involving premium items for Android and iOS devices.
