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.
We now have confirmation! Announced is the launch of the Seiken Densetsu Collection for the Nintendo Switch.
Due out June 1st in Japan, the collection will include Seiken Densetsu 1 (Final Fantasy Adventure), Seiken Densetsu 2 (Secret of Mana) and Seiken Densetsu 3 in their original formats.
No news yet on a western release though.
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)
The CD will also be included in the Box Set due to hit stores around the same time for 21,000 yen.
Square Enix are soon to be releasing an album of chiptune versions for songs from several of their later gen titles. SQChips will include songs from Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3. Among other titles of interest are Chrono Trigger, several Final Fantasy games, and a couple from the Saga series. The album is due out on September 7 for ¥1890, and will be available from Amazon Japan, the Sony Music Shop and the Square Enix eStore.

POLLS!!! That is what is new for Seikens. A really long time ago we used to have polls in the page. But it wen’t gone for unknown reason. Now it is back! From time to time we are going to have new surveys. Everything is going to be related to our beloved series by Square Enix.
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
Thanks to tomnet who provided us a lot collection of photos of his collection of Seiken Densetsu merchendise.
