Secret of Mana Remake coming to PS4, PS Vita and Steam!

August 25th, 2017 | Kassidy Kearey | Filed under Secret of Mana, Square-Enix

Square Enix have announced that Secret of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 2) will be remade in top-down view 3D (similar to what we’ve seen for Adventures of Mana on mobile) and released on PS4, PS Vita and Steam February 15 of 2018. You will soon be able to pre-order the title on the PS Network and receive free DLC costumes for your favourite characters:

Mana DLC

You know you want that Moogle Suit!

As well as the 3D graphics, the remake will feature voice-acting, a re-arranged soundtrack, and local multiplayer for Playstation. The game will also have flexible language options to be able to experience the game with Japanese voice acting and subtitles.

And, of course, what would an announcement like this be like without a video.

Secret of Mana will be playable at PAX West from September 1-4 at both the Square Enix booth and the PlayStation booth!

Unraveled: Tale of the Shipbreaker’s Daughter

May 18th, 2015 | Kassidy Kearey | Filed under Secret of Mana, Sideprojects, Soundtracks

While not strictly related to the Seiken Densetsu series, it has a connection to one of our favourite composers.

Unraveled is an adventure RPG game currently seeking Kickstarter funding (at 7.4k our of 15k with 14 days to go at the time of writing). As with the trend of many KS games right now, it has a retro feel to it hearkening back to the days of Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger, but not only that, the soundtrack will feature collaborations from Secret of Mana composer Hiroki Kikuta. The current draft for the main theme can now be heard here in the embedded YT video.

I for one am backing this project, as it does look interesting, so check it out and see if it is your cup of tea or not. Otherwise, simply enjoy the music.

Secret of Mana iOS updates, sale, and coming to Android

August 4th, 2014 | Kassidy Kearey | Filed under Android, iPhone, Secret of Mana

Between now and August 10th you can get Secret of Mana for iOS for about 50% the usual price, so go grab it if you haven’t done so already.

Not only that, but a number of updates have been made to the game, such as added MFi controller support, an improved virtual stick for those without controllers, new high resolution UI elements, a fix for the long-standing bug with the background music, and support for retina and 4-inch displays.

To top things off, for those with Android devices, we’ll see a version of the Mobile Secret of Mana hit Android OS this Autumn (only took, what, 4 years?).

Thanks to manaman for the heads up on some of these items.

Go check it out and subscribe to his channel for more retrospectives.
