Unraveled: Tale of the Shipbreaker’s Daughter

Posted on May 18th, 2015 by 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.

Rise of Mana headed for Vita

Posted on April 17th, 2015 by Kassidy Kearey Filed under Rise of Mana, Seiken Densetsu

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.

I found this story of a tradition shared between two brothers playing Secret of Mana at Christmas, and wanted to get it out to a wider audience.

Merry Christmas, guys!

While we still don’t have solid news on whether Rise of Mana will reach western shores, and adding to recent news that Rise of Mana will be expanded to the PS Vita platform, we now have video proof that the characters from Secret of Mana are due to be playable in Rise of Mana.

You can see some previews of the 3D models for the characters in this presentation video.

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

Posted on August 4th, 2014 by 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.


Rise of Mana – OST Previews

Posted on April 20th, 2014 by Kassidy Kearey Filed under Rise of Mana

In a few days the OST for Rise of Mana, the latest mobile installment of the Seiken Densetsu series, will be released. It includes one track from Yoko Shimomura (Legend of Mana, Heroes of Mana), one track from Hiroki Kikuta (Secret of Mana, Seiken Densetsu 3), and a couple from Kenji Ito (Final Fantasy Adventure, Sword of Mana, and more). Most tracks are courtesy of Tsuyoshi Sekito, who contributed to the soundtrack of Dawn of Mana for the PS2.

You can hear some previews of a number of the tracks here.

I have to mention though that one of Itoken’s tracks is a piano arrangement of Rising Sun. Again. Really? Seriously, how many more times?


A Secret of Mana Retrospective Review

Posted on April 5th, 2014 by Kassidy Kearey Filed under Secret of Mana, Videos

StrafeFox over on YouTube does a very nice job of producing game reviews and retrospectives on his channel, and he has brought his most recent one to our attention on the forum. Very slick visuals and narration, even bringing to the table a little fact I wasn’t aware of (Nasir’s Visa woes).

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

Rise of Mana – Trailer and Soundtrack details

Posted on February 26th, 2014 by Kassidy Kearey Filed under Rise of Mana

A trailer for the upcoming mobile freemium Seiken Densetsu game has been released:

In addition to the trailer, the official site for the game reveals that the intended launch of the title will be soon on iOS, and Summer 2014 for Android.

Perhaps more interesting is the arrival of the soundtrack on April 23rd.

You can also pre-register your e-mail address for the game on the official site, and by the looks of things this will give you some benefits on game launch (which you’d otherwise, I guess, have to grind for or fork out money on micro-transactions).


Rise of Mana – Coming to Mobile

Posted on February 26th, 2014 by Kassidy Kearey Filed under Rise of Mana

It’s another sad day in the news, I’m afraid.

The most recent issue of Famitsu magazine reveals that Rise of Mana, the trademarked name as filed by Square-Enix last year, is to be a free-to-play mobile game coming to Android and iOS with the increasingly popular and loathed in-app purchases.

It hasn’t been too long since the Dungeon Keeper franchise was ported to a mobile freemium app, and that received extremely negative criticism directed at EA, and with very good reason from personal experience (because I can’t criticise something until I’ve tried it myself, and yes, it is as bad as everyone says).

From Siliconera:
According to the magazine report, the protagonist of the game fell from the heavens and landed on earth, and seems to have been made into a body that is half angel and another half demon.

Rise of Mana’s main town is called Miste, where you’ll be able to purchase weapons, items, and raise demon pets who’ll be supporting you throughout your adventures.

The basic weapons are made of sword, spear, and bow. The magazine also reports that up to eight players will be able to play together in real-time action. The game’s new system will also involve the ability to switch between angel and demon modes according to your situation.

This all makes me incredibly sad, and gives me little hope that the series will ever be given the love it deserves. No doubt I will try this game out for myself and see what the end product is, but I’m not looking forward to it.
