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 .
