Secret of Mana . Say the title and watch old-school veterans grin.

I remember getting Legend of Mana back during the original PlayStation days, which was a beautiful hand-drawn adventure that wasn't exactly like SoM, but it was still pretty special.

So how's about another one? The most recent titles ( Heroes of Mana and Dawn of Mana ) didn't really cut the mustard in many a gamer's opinion, but one can always hope for a return to old-fashioned goodness. According to Gematsu citing FF-Reunion, Square Enix has filed a new trademark for "Circle of Mana" in Japan. Obviously, one gets ideas in one's head considering the possibilities; me, I want a true Secret of Mana -type downloadable game.

Hey, mechanics from yesteryear can work out just fine in the digital world. Just look at Rainbow Moon .

Why not a full on full budget big time return to JRPG dominance?

I mean, besides the fact SE won't do it.

This is not ok. Not ok at all. I think I actually like the Seiken Dentetsu series more than I do Final Fantasy. After the last two mediocre entries, I just don't think I could handle it if SE decided to crap all over this like they did FF.
