“Secret of Mana” G-Shock DW-8000-1

Posted on October 23rd, 2019 by Dr. Sheexy Filed under Merchandise, Secret of Mana, Seiken Densetsu 3, Seikens

I have not updated the site with my collection of Mana related things in a long time. I’ve got a lot of interesting items I could share here. This one, however, is rare enough and relevant enough at the current time to make a post for.

As you can see, it’s a Casio G-Shock watch with “Secret of Mana” printed on the band.
Yup, that’s the extent of it.

But there were only 200 of these made.

The DW-8000s are fairly uncommon watches in and of themselves, and the avid vintage G-Shock collector community still demands a decent price for them, but they’re not impossible to get your hands on. But the fact there are only 200 with “Secret of Mana” printed on them made me think I would never get my hands on the thing. But here it is.
Just like any other DW-8000 it has “Fox Fire” EL backlighting, a red buffalo skull in the background, and the text “TIME TO GET TOUGH” scrolls by when you press the light button.

When Seiken Densetsu 3 was released in Japan, there were a number of items given away as raffle prizes. 200 of these G-Shock DW-8000-1 watches were given out, making this item quite rare. It’s very interesting, though, that the watch is related to Seiken Densetsu 3, but says “Secret of Mana” on it. It makes me wonder if the plans back then were to keep going forward with the “Secret of Mana” moniker if the game came out in English. In fact, if you look next to the watch on the raffle flyer, you can see a Mana stone with “Secret of Mana” printed on it just like the watch. Seems like that might have been the case. It also makes me wonder when the name “Trials of Mana” was decided upon, because it certainly wasn’t back in 1995. Just some interesting thoughts.

The other items I have from the raffle include the playing cards and the prologue book (5,000 each). Both of those items came out in non-raffle forms though. I’ve seen many of the phone cards (1,200) for sale on auction sites, but don’t own any. I’ve decided against collecting them because phone card collectors are insane and demand incredible prices for the things. Maybe someday I’ll go after them, but I’m not that interested honestly.

Anyway, that’s just a small update on my collection.

Trials of Mana Remake Gameplay

Posted on June 12th, 2019 by Deques Filed under Seikens


Some details about Trials of Mana

Posted on June 12th, 2019 by Deques Filed under Seikens

Game Informer have had an interview with Masaru Oyamada, the producer of the Mana series and got some nice details regarding Trials of Mana. 

The game will not focus on co-op, and will only have a single player option. But the AI will be improved since the previous games.

It will have both Japanese and English voice over.

The story will not be exactly the same.

The producer wasn’t aware of the fan translation that has been available for over a decade. It was not until they greenlit the remake that they found out about it.

Trials of Mana and Collection of Mana coming to Nintendo Switch

Posted on June 11th, 2019 by Dr. Sheexy Filed under Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana, Seiken Densetsu, Seiken Densetsu 3

Looks like we’ll be able to play an official translation of SD3 after all these years!

It’s coming in the form of a new 3D remake!

Trials of Mana sounds kind of fitting, with all the characters going through their own trials throughout the story. What do you think of the name?

Collection of Mana, releasing today, includes Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana, and Seiken Densetsu 3.

Songs of Light and Darkness

Posted on October 2nd, 2018 by Dr. Sheexy Filed under Mana Music Monday, Seiken Densetsu 3, Soundtracks

I’ve finally managed to get myself white listed on the site again, after 5 long years, and magically enough the post I bring to you today is about exactly the same thing I posted about last time.

Except this time it’s finished.

Head over to to check out the SD3 OverClocked ReMix album, “Songs of Light and Darkness”, it’s taken a while but it’s finally here.

The second song on the album is especially on the nose, literally mentioning the “long long time” and “it might take 5 years but it reached the last stop” in its lyrics (I didn’t expect lyrics going in; also my last post mentions it being in the works for 4 years, so I guess we’re looking at almost 10 or so now, what an endeavor!).

Thanks to Rozovian for keeping me updated all these years on the project, and congrats to you and yours for seeing this all the way through. Also thanks for giving me an excuse to use the Mana Music Monday tag again, even though it’s technically Tuesday now. But late updates are nothing new around these parts!

Anyway, great job to all involved, and I look forward to listening through the entire thing.

Anniversary of Mana

Posted on August 7th, 2018 by Kassidy Kearey Filed under Secret of Mana

Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of Secret of Mana, the game that really put the Seiken Densetsu series on the map. In honour of this, one of our long-standing members of the community, Manaman, has written an article on his blog remembering his introduction to the game.

It’s not a perfect game, but despite its imperfections, it retains some spark, some magic that results from happy accidents and limitations. It is a work of art that I enjoy to this day.

You can read the full article here.
