In some fantastic news we learn that a remake of the original Seiken Densetsu game, released in the west as Final Fantasy Adventure, is going to be making its way to the PlayStation Vita, Android and iPhone smartphones. I’ve seen no dates yet, but we do get a glimpse into the art-style of the remake in the video released by Square-Enix on YouTube:

Thanks Sheexy for the heads-up.

Rise of Mana, the latest installment in the Seiken Densetsu series which to many fans’ disappointment has been a mobile-only title, is now going to hit the Playstation Vita this May in Japan. Whether it will make it further west than that is yet to be seen.
If nothing else, you can at least enjoy the music from the announcement trailer.

Sheexy tipped me off on this one after finding an auction on Yahoo.co.jp, and after a quick search, it turns out that an official album is on the way from the hands of Kenji Ito.
Re:Birth/聖剣伝説 伊藤賢治アレンジアルバム, will be hitting stores on October the 19th to celebrate 20 years of Seiken Densetsu, and will consist of a series of tracks originally composed by Kenji Ito, arranged by… Kenji Ito. It will apparently cover a variety of styles, and although the full track list has not been released yet, it will include the following:
Rising Sun (No, really, ya think?)
Mana’s Mission (SD1)
In Search of the Holy Sword (SD1)
Final Battle (SD1)
The Fool’s Dance (SD4)
The Endless Dream (SD4)
It will be available for the price of 2,500 yen from Amazon.co.jp and The Square Enix e-Store. A sample is available here of the track that includes, are we at all surprised, Rising Sun.
The CD will also be included in the Box Set due to hit stores around the same time for 21,000 yen.

Our first survey is going to ask you what’s your favourite elemental spirit in the series. You can find the poll in the sidebar, below the menu and above the shoutbox.

This will be the first news we have about Friends of Mana. The game is developed for cellphones and will be first in the series to feature online multiplayer. The game takes place ten years after Legend of Mana, meaning it’s a direct sequel to it.
Because of it’s online feature, the game will probably never see outside Japan.
Edit: The game doesnt take place ten years after Legend of Mana, it takes place ten years before it. Sorry for my missunderstand

Square’s official World of Mana site has now updated with two trailers from the Tokyo Game Show, one of which was posted here recently in the Heroes of Mana thread. Now the Dawn of Mana trailer is also available in all its glory. To view them, just go to the Trailers section on the main page.
However, since the site is a tad slow, the videos are also available on youtube at the following locations: Dawn of Mana – Heroes of Mana
Not only that, but the people at Square-Enix have also added two new wallpapers to the Download section of the main page, including a rather pop-art Rabite.
