Merchandise Section Revival

Posted on October 22nd, 2021 by Dr. Sheexy


The Merchandise section, which has been dead for close to a decade, has finally been restored!

You can currently read about:
Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana (1993), Seiken Densetsu 3 (1995), Children of Mana, Dawn of Mana, Heroes of Mana, and general World of Mana merchandise!
Wow! Aren’t you lucky?

Well, maybe just a little bit anyway. You see, the Merchandise section is kinda ugly and quite outdated. I have plans to add more content in the future and spruce the place up, but for now it’s better than nothing! A few details may be wrong or out-of-date here and there, but still, it’s good to have it back! I found the old merch section files on the FTP, and it seemed a shame to let it sit there unknown and alone! After all, I created 232 individual images of Mana merch to put the section together. I must have had a lot of time on my hands back in the day.
Ah, good times.

Echoes of Mana – Tokyo Game Show 2021 Trailer

Posted on October 1st, 2021 by Dr. Sheexy

Check out the trailer below to see a bit more of Echoes of Mana. You’ll notice some familiar faces abound, like Eggatrices, Mantis Ant, and Fullmetal Haggar. They show off some villain characters along with all the heroes at the end, which might be kind of interesting if they’re “playable”.

What are your thoughts about the game? It’s going to be mobile, and most likely gacha… it’s got me worried for sure.

Also, kind of sad to see so many games represented, but Sword of Mana gets no love. We need Willy! Even though I still believe he should have died.

Trials of Mana – Class change update

Posted on September 26th, 2021 by Deques

This is something that I have wanted for a long time but never had much time to work on. And it is to update the Trials of Mana pages to fit with the official translation of the game. Trials of Mana, also known as Seiken Densetsu 3, was never available outside of Japan. A fan translation by Neill Corlett was released August 2000. 

The game was officially released for the North America and PAL regions in June 2019 as part of Collection of Mana, which contained the three first games in original versions. With this release there are many things that have been differently translated.

Today I have update Angela’s class page! The updated page not only contains official translation, but also information for the remake that was released last year. For now the page doesn’t have information for the final classes for each light/dark path. But I will add those later. I will try to update the class information for all the other characters as soon as possible.

Legend of Mana Card Duel – Item Cards

Posted on September 8th, 2021 by Dr. Sheexy

EDIT: Special thanks to Sevon for helping me get the Item names in line with forged weapons in the game. Check out his nifty Legend of Mana pages (which helped me a lot in this process), as well as his intensely immense SaGa pages!

The Legend of Mana Card Duel section now has all of the Item Cards, which means that all 150 cards in the set have been uploaded and translated!

Yeehaw!

Items are equipped by Characters in battle to help them square up against Monsters. There is one card for each weapon type, and two of each four instruments resulting in one for each of the eight Elements. As mentioned with the Character cards, there are some limitations as to who can equip what. The abilities offered by Items are all based on Special Techniques and Magic Spells, so that’s pretty neat. I used a mix of PSX and Remaster translations for these, based on what I felt was best.

The 2H Sword and Fire Flute were both “Dragon” weapons, which doesn’t give much hint in Japanese as to their actual material (Scales or Skin) so I just assigned one to each.

All that is really left for the Card Duel section is the Rulebook translation, but I’ve actually got a number of other updates in mind for it. The Rulebook and other content will take a bit of time, but look out for them in the future!
