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 had their hopes too high. The Japanese title was Seiken Densetsu 4, which carries the legacy of the excellent Super Nintendo/Famicom games. Or maybe the series had severe problems when it switched from 2D to 3D. Later this month we’ll be checking out Dawn of Mana to find out, until then check out these new screenshots of the US build.
