Mana Music Boxes

July 15th, 2021 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Legend of Mana, Merchandise, Music, Seiken Densetsu 3, Trials of Mana, Videos

Up for preorder on the Square-Enix store, you can find three Mana Music Boxes for sale. They’re pretty expensive, and the shipping is pretty high as well, but it’s pretty cool these came to the North American Square-Enix store.

Trials of Mana – Meridian Child

Legend of Mana – Hometown of Domina

Legend of Mana – Bejeweled City in Ruins

Here you can check out some short videos I took of each of them. The Domina one is by far my favorite.

You can also find some other cool Mana stuff there, if you look around. I’d recommend the Li’l Cactus Plushie, but you can also find some very expensive but very cool things.

Seiken Densetsu 3 Triangle Card Games

July 3rd, 2021 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Gallery Updates, Seiken Densetsu 3, Seikens, Trials of Mana

Legend of Mana wasn’t the only Seiken Densetsu game to get a card game! These games aren’t anywhere near as collectable or complicated as Card Duel is, but it’s still fun to see.

Back in 1995, the Prologue book for Seiken Densetsu 3 came with a collection of 22 cards that you could play simple little games with. One game is like War, the other one is more like Uno.

You can read about the games on the Triangle Story Card Games page, and check out all the scanned cards either there or in the Gallery.

I actually scanned all those cards in back in 2012. That’s when I originally made this page, but it got lost when we transferred everything to WordPress. I think it looks pretty nice, all the images on the page are brand new.

“Secret of Mana” G-Shock DW-8000-1

October 23rd, 2019 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Merchandise, Secret of Mana, Seiken Densetsu 3, Seikens

I have not updated the site with my collection of Mana related things in a long time. I’ve got a lot of interesting items I could share here. This one, however, is rare enough and relevant enough at the current time to make a post for.

As you can see, it’s a Casio G-Shock watch with “Secret of Mana” printed on the band.
Yup, that’s the extent of it.

But there were only 200 of these made.

The DW-8000s are fairly uncommon watches in and of themselves, and the avid vintage G-Shock collector community still demands a decent price for them, but they’re not impossible to get your hands on. But the fact there are only 200 with “Secret of Mana” printed on them made me think I would never get my hands on the thing. But here it is.
Just like any other DW-8000 it has “Fox Fire” EL backlighting, a red buffalo skull in the background, and the text “TIME TO GET TOUGH” scrolls by when you press the light button.

When Seiken Densetsu 3 was released in Japan, there were a number of items given away as raffle prizes. 200 of these G-Shock DW-8000-1 watches were given out, making this item quite rare. It’s very interesting, though, that the watch is related to Seiken Densetsu 3, but says “Secret of Mana” on it. It makes me wonder if the plans back then were to keep going forward with the “Secret of Mana” moniker if the game came out in English. In fact, if you look next to the watch on the raffle flyer, you can see a Mana stone with “Secret of Mana” printed on it just like the watch. Seems like that might have been the case. It also makes me wonder when the name “Trials of Mana” was decided upon, because it certainly wasn’t back in 1995. Just some interesting thoughts.

The other items I have from the raffle include the playing cards and the prologue book (5,000 each). Both of those items came out in non-raffle forms though. I’ve seen many of the phone cards (1,200) for sale on auction sites, but don’t own any. I’ve decided against collecting them because phone card collectors are insane and demand incredible prices for the things. Maybe someday I’ll go after them, but I’m not that interested honestly.

Anyway, that’s just a small update on my collection.

Trials of Mana and Collection of Mana coming to Nintendo Switch

June 11th, 2019 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana, Seiken Densetsu, Seiken Densetsu 3

Looks like we’ll be able to play an official translation of SD3 after all these years!

It’s coming in the form of a new 3D remake!

Trials of Mana sounds kind of fitting, with all the characters going through their own trials throughout the story. What do you think of the name?

Collection of Mana, releasing today, includes Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana, and Seiken Densetsu 3.
