I’m afraid that I let the ball drop on Mana Music Monday, for which I apologize. However, to make up for it, and in conjunction with Wai’s news this week announcing the launch of Heroes of Mana on 14th of August and his coverage on the launch of Dawn of Mana today, we have not one but two tracks to celebrate the continuing expansion of the World of Mana (let’s take advantage of them while we can, guys!), while remembering those golden years passed sat hacking away at Rabites.

Yes, the western world won’t be avoiding this installment of Seiken Densetsu series. Heroes of Mana got a release for North America. The game will be released on August 14th this year.
Heroes of Mana is prequel to Seiken Densetsu 3 and will take place 19 years before it’s sequel. A few characters from SD3 will be returning to this game.
Be sure to save some money for this game, when it is out.

Heroes of Mana
If you plod on over to Square’s Music page you’ll find the page for the Heroes of Mana OST with 5 samples of the tracks from the CD. If you compare these to the rips I made a while back, you’ll notice that the quality of the tracks from the CD is far superior (note, this isn’t down to the process of ripping them from the DS) to the quality in game, which is a very pleasant surprise indeed, and makes the release later this month even more worth the wait.
The cover art for the Heroes of Mana soundtrack has been revealed.
Hey everyone, first I’d like to say that Heroes of Mana is going to be released State side late this summer!Â Thanks to Boreras in the Shoutbox for linking me to the article at Kotaku Here, who in turn got their information from IGN Here.
Also, just a small early warning that the Bestiary will not update on Saturday due to, shall we say, technical reasons.Â Deques and I are going to be cleaning it up a bit.
We have indeed the first screenshot showing English text of Heroes of Mana!
Shame it appears they have butchered the names even more than they already are… However, this is good news, even if there still isn’t a concrete date confirmed yet (still slated for Summer 2007, no more specific than that I’m afraid).
Following on from last week’s Music Monday, we bring you more Heroes of Mana exclusive goodness, in the form of another 5 tracks ripped from the game, plus a few fanfares (well, they don’t really count as tracks, do they?).

Initial sales of Square-Enix’s latest installment of the World of Mana series, Heroes of Mana, have not been as good as expected in Japan. The 100,000 units from the first distribution are mostly still sitting on the shelves.
Week of March 5th to 11th: 16,013 units sold (13th, below Animal Crossing DS which sold 17,000!)
Week of March 12th to 18th: 7,800 units sold (31st)
With no US Release date yet announced, could this mean another Mana game from the SD3 arc doesn’t make it outside Japan?
This week and as what could well be a web exclusive, we bring you a selection of tracks from the most recent release in the World of Mana series, Heroes of Mana, which have been ripped straight from the game. As such, you can expect the quality on the OST soon to be released to be at least marginally better.
Again, this soundtrack comes from the hand of Yoko Shimomura, known for working on Legend of Mana, Street Fighter 2, and more recently the Kingdom Hearts series.
