Trials of Mana originally released in Japan as Seiksen Densetsu 3 for the Super Famicom in 1995 and it is celebrating its 24th anniversary today, September 30. Here’s a message from its creator and a special illustration shared via the series’ official Twitter account.
Here’s the 24th anniversary message from creator Koichi Ishii for all the fans:
Koichi Ishii: “When designing the six main characters, the very first one to have their image take shape was Lise. She moves forward without averting her eyes from the harsh trials. She’s a character who is the embodiment of such strong will. I believe growth comes from having such strong wills. And to you all, please do enjoy this ‘adventure of growing’ together with Lise.”
