Nobuteru Yuki’s Seiken Densetsu 3 Illustration Book

August 4th, 2009 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Merchandise, Seiken Densetsu 3

Well, I finally managed to get my hands on one of the rarest pieces of Seiken Densetsu Merchandise there is.
This super rare book was printed in 1998 and contains 96 pages of completed illustrations from Seiken Densetsu 3’s character artist Nobuteru Yuki, as well as many rough sketches some of which never made it any further. A few pages at the end contain short comics by a few guest artists as well as Nobuteru Yuki as well.

This is the book cover with its jacket on. The jacket has words on it and is see through like frosted glass.

Continue reading to see a few more pictures from the book, as well as some more information on it.

Heard it Through the Bellgrape Vine…

April 6th, 2009 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Remixes, Seiken Densetsu 3

You didn’t hear it from me, but there seems to be a huge Seiken Densetsu 3 remixing project going on behind the scenes over at OverClocked Remix. I hear remixers such as Sixto Sounds, Usa, The Joker and Abadoss are involved.

The estimated track count sounds to be really impressive, 20 to 30 remixes or so including some that don’t get much love in the remixing community.

The walls have eyes, so if you’ve got a favorite Seiken Densetsu 3 track that hasn’t ever gotten the honor of being remixed maybe make mention of it here or over at OverClocked Remix. Maybe someone involved will hear you and make it happen.

Seiken Densetsu 3 Card Games

November 6th, 2008 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Seiken Densetsu 3

If you’ve ever looked around the Merchandise section on the site you’ve probably come across the Seiken Densetsu 3 Prologue book, and you know it has a small collection of cards that come with it.

With the help of a friend I’ve translated the two games that can be played with them.

Being that there are only 22 cards (24 if you have the special shiny cards), it doesn’t seem like you could have much fun playing around with them, but I tried the games out and they’re kind of fun. They’re perfect for if you’ve got some SD3 loving friends and you need a way to solve a dispute or something.

The first game is a simple War style game which can last anywhere from five minutes to… well I had to quit playing a few times because it seemed like it was never going to end.
The second game is like Uno, but kinda weird. Its games tend to last under seven minutes every time.

The rules to the game and some other information about the cards in general can be found on the Seiken Densetsu 3 Cards page. The page also contains a link to the Gallery where you can find most of the cards. Eventually I’ll get around to making some better scans of them and put up some easy to print versions, but until then this will have to do.

Also, Seiken Densetsu 3 isn’t the only Seiken Densetsu game to have a card game associated with it. In 1999 Square released the 150 card Legend of Mana Card Duel game. I wrote a little bit about it last year in this news post. Eventually I hope to get this game translated and all the cards scanned as well, but I only have maybe 2/3 of all the cards and I haven’t seen any more for sale in years and years. If you have some Legend of Mana Card Duel cards please contact me because I’d love to figure out what the ones I am missing are.

Both Deques and Kassidy are out right now, but that doesn’t mean the site is going to be completely quiet. I’ll be heading up the MMM updates for a while and I’ll be trying to get some new scans and updates together.

Seiken Densetsu 3 Characters

August 21st, 2008 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Seiken Densetsu 3

Kassidy rewrote all of the Seiken Densetsu 3 Character Summaries and added those awesome chibi scans I got a few months ago onto the page, making it a much nicer place.

That’s just one of about a billion things Kassidy has been working on the site lately, he’s seriously been all over the place. No telling what will be updated next.

Speaking of updates, any coming from me are going to be very far and few between as I challenged my laptop to a duel, and won. My poor laptop smashed into the ground and promptly gave up living, and I haven’t been able to get it fixed.
And next weekend or so I return to my college adventures and back to my college house where I guess I’ll have to glean time on my roommate’s and cousin’s computers to work on the site.

When your laptop challenges you to a duel it is a lose-lose situation people.

More updates on stuff later!


Aim for the top!

June 15th, 2008 | Deques | Filed under Seiken Densetsu 3

Are you one of the many that wants to level up to the max level in Seiken Densetsu 3, but lack of motivation or ideas of how to level up as fast as possible? Trang is one of the few who actually maxed the level for all six characters. Not only that, he also did max for all classes. He is now sharing his leveling tips with rest of us Seiken Densetsu 3 players. You can see his leveling guide in the Level guide in the Seiken Densetsu 3 section.
Thank you, Trang

Seiken Densetsu 3 Chibi Characters

June 10th, 2008 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Gallery Updates, Seiken Densetsu 3

Head over to the Seiken Densetsu 3 Character Gallery to find some awesome chibi character arts!

In the book these images were seriously the size of a quarter, I had scan at a ludicrously high DPI to get these scans this large, so you people better enjoy them XD.

They come in two sizes, decent size and gigantic size.

Coming up soon are more SD3 scans, they won’t be as large as these though because it takes forever to get the scans done, and the rest of the scans I’ve got left are only really useful for making site sections look neat.

Speaking of sections looking neat, I put some images and updated the SD3 Magic Items and SD3 Class Items pages. They might change again depending on what Deques does to them.


Seiken Densetsu 3 Item Scans

June 8th, 2008 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Gallery Updates, Seiken Densetsu 3

Items ahoy!

Our gallery now hosts images of all the Seiken Densetsu 3 Items! Well, stuff like monster eyes and claws don’t have official images, but everything else you could think of is there.
Some of the scans are a little bad, but that can’t be helped thanks to where the images were placed on the page.

Be sure to check out the elemental statues, some of them are pretty awesome, while others are pretty lame (Wisp) or really really creepy (Jinn… *shudder shudder*).

Coming up in the scan department are FFA items, SD3 chibis and lots of SoM stuff.

Seiken Densetsu 3 Armor Scans

June 7th, 2008 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Gallery Updates, Seiken Densetsu 3

Head over to the Seiken Densetsu 3 Equipment Gallery for more scanned goodies. If you liked the Weapon scans I added last time you’re sure to enjoy these armor scans. Well, probably. They kind of suck because the armor isn’t presented as large as the weapons, and the armor tends to like to live in the middle margin where it is a pain to scan without damaging my books. Maybe one day when I own multiple copies I’ll rip my books apart to get the best scans, but for now these are going to have to do.

Coming up next week (probably) will be a HUGE Bestiary update. We’re talking the Bestiary will be like, 85% done. Only stuff missing will be sprites from SwoM and CoM (maybe HoM, I dunno what Kassidy has done on that front), and I’m gonna leave writing the Bestiary portions of the HoM stuff to him since I haven’t played the game really. Dawn of Mana monster scans will come later for the Bestiary too.

Seiken Densetsu 3 Weapon Scans

May 29th, 2008 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Gallery Updates, Seiken Densetsu 3

Head over to the Seiken Densetsu 3 section in the gallery to check out some scans I’ve made of the weapons from the game.
Seiken Densetsu 3 Equipment Gallery

They aren’t the prettiest scans in the game, but as far as I know these are the only images of the weapons that exist. It’s pretty sad that all this work was put into making these pictures and probably 95% of people who like the game don’t even know they exist. And then the pictures that do exist are all overlapping each other and covered in stupid lines. But oh well, they’re available here now. I’m not sure but I think this might be the first time these scans have seen the light of day on the internet.

Coming up later this week (depending largely on my internet connection) will be more scans from Seiken Densetsu 3 including the armor and items from the game.


SD3DS! We gotta hold of the game!

April 1st, 2008 | Kassidy Kearey | Filed under Seiken Densetsu 3, Square-Enix

Connections are a wonderful thing. So the rumours were true, a preview of SD3 for the DS has been leaked, and thanks to certain contacts I now has my hands on it. And I’ve taken the liberty of filming some of it for you guys.

You’ll notice that the soundtrack has been reworked, and although I think it may not be a final version, it’s sounding pretty good. I’m looking forward to working my way through what other tracks I can find on here, so with some luck next Mana Music Monday will have some SD3DS (hey, that’s a palindrome!) goodness to boot!

More videos with some more gameplay to come soon. Sorry for the bad camera work, but you know what it’s like trying to record stuff off the DS.
