Welcome to the Seikens Network, the site that covers everything from the Seiken Densetsu / World of Mana series; from latest news on game releases and developments to in-depth walkthroughs, information guides for class changes, gameplay and inventories, a detailed monster bestiary, a growing official and fan artwork gallery, and complete soundtrack listings and downloadable remixes.
We aim to bring you all you need to know, and more, about the series from Final Fantasy Adventure right up to the latest Dawn of Mana. We also offer a friendly community message board where you can get in touch with other fans of the series for gaming help or just join in with fun conversation on any topic.
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.
I’ve finally managed to get myself white listed on the site again, after 5 long years, and magically enough the post I bring to you today is about exactly the same thing I posted about last time.
Except this time it’s finished.
Head over to sd3.ocremix.org to check out the SD3 OverClocked ReMix album, “Songs of Light and Darkness”, it’s taken a while but it’s finally here.
The second song on the album is especially on the nose, literally mentioning the “long long time” and “it might take 5 years but it reached the last stop” in its lyrics (I didn’t expect lyrics going in; also my last post mentions it being in the works for 4 years, so I guess we’re looking at almost 10 or so now, what an endeavor!).
Thanks to Rozovian for keeping me updated all these years on the project, and congrats to you and yours for seeing this all the way through. Also thanks for giving me an excuse to use the Mana Music Monday tag again, even though it’s technically Tuesday now. But late updates are nothing new around these parts!
Anyway, great job to all involved, and I look forward to listening through the entire thing.
Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of Secret of Mana, the game that really put the Seiken Densetsu series on the map. In honour of this, one of our long-standing members of the community, Manaman, has written an article on his blog remembering his introduction to the game.
It’s not a perfect game, but despite its imperfections, it retains some spark, some magic that results from happy accidents and limitations. It is a work of art that I enjoy to this day.

Square Enix have announced that Secret of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 2) will be remade in top-down view 3D (similar to what we’ve seen for Adventures of Mana on mobile) and released on PS4, PS Vita and Steam February 15 of 2018. You will soon be able to pre-order the title on the PS Network and receive free DLC costumes for your favourite characters:
As well as the 3D graphics, the remake will feature voice-acting, a re-arranged soundtrack, and local multiplayer for Playstation. The game will also have flexible language options to be able to experience the game with Japanese voice acting and subtitles.
And, of course, what would an announcement like this be like without a video.
Secret of Mana will be playable at PAX West from September 1-4 at both the Square Enix booth and the PlayStation booth!
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.
Thanks to Manaman for pointing this one out! The official Seiken Densetsu PR Twitter account recently posted a short video showing 10 seconds worth of gameplay of Seiken Densetsu 3 on the newly launched Nintendo Switch. Interesting to note the border round the screen in the form of the world map artwork from the game to fill out the space.
The big question is now whether this means we will see an official English port of the game!
