Man, we can dream eh? =(
I was thinking of a SD3 remake because we'd never had it. But now that you mention being able to add everything back that they cut from SoM, I'd much rather have that. It would be a dream come true! :-D

So there is the Boreal Hound in the first page, and the Spikey Tiger in the second.
Also, I have a crazy idea that they plan to include SD3 in Heroes of Mana.

As far as I've been able to tell, those images are reference to the fact that HoM takes place 19 years before SD3, and there are certain plot connections, nothing more. However, if it were the unlikely case that SD3 were included, I would be very pleasantly surprised.

What we need is a translator to translate all the stuff so we know what is going on. Then I would be satisfied.

Hey look people, Brownie Brown put up their Heroes of Mana page and they have some little drawings that are pretty cool here.

Looks like they're gonna keep adding new stuff! :D


Look at this flippin' creepy Rabite.

Bump bump.
I'm checking in from a friend's computer. Just wanted to point something out.

The name of the guy on the left is Richard and the name of the lady on the right is Valda.

Names sound familiar?

Sheexy - and did you checked the name of the lady at far right? She is Queen Altena...

Can't wait to play this game... my DS is just waiting for North America release...

Well we finally get an extra piece to the puzzle that is SD3, and about bloody time too. Continuity, I thought I'd never see the day (though maybe I'm crying victory too soon, I dunno).

Snazzy. So, the King of Forcena and the Queen of Altena both make returns here. Judging from the simple fact that there IS concept art of them, I'd say it's not too early to subscribe to the idea that they're going to get into (at least slightly) meaty history of SD3 - which fits with my idea that they're revisiting all the games in the series in reverse order.

A remake, though? I don't see it happening unless it's flat-out demanded.

In anticipation of the almost imminent release of Heroes of Mana, another bulk of scans, screenshots and artwork has been released. You can find them at the following links:

This game is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated releases for DS, and from the looks of it rightly so. I'm getting very impacient to get my hands on this puppy.

Of particular interest is this tidbi here:

Oh man, that skeleton of Boosakoo is very morbid! What happened to him?! I don't think that he can swim anymore! The SD3 re-makes may have better grapics and all that, but it can never compare to the original version of the game. I'm not even sure that the prople who are working on the re-makes will even release them after they are done. Not too many people still know about the mana games.

Whoa... uhh...

I honestly don't know what to say to that.

So... what happened? Did he take too long to get away from Bucca?
