Last Updated on: July 8th, 2022
The Mana (Seiken Densetsu in Japanese) video game franchise is a series of action role-playing games developed and published by Square Enix. The series began with the release of “Final Fantasy Adventure” for the Game Boy in 1991, which was later renamed “Mystic Quest” in Europe. The game was the first entry in what would become the Mana series, though at the time it was marketed as a spin-off of the Final Fantasy series.
The second game in the series, “Secret of Mana,” was released in 1993 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and is considered a classic of the action RPG genre. The game featured real-time combat and multiplayer support, allowing up to three players to control the game’s characters simultaneously.
The third game in the series, “Seiken Densetsu 3,” was released exclusively in Japan in 1995 for the SNES. It introduced a branching story with six different playable characters and multiple paths through the game’s narrative.
In 1999, the series was revived with “Legend of Mana” for the PlayStation, which introduced a non-linear gameplay structure and a unique world-building mechanic. Subsequent entries in the series include “Sword of Mana” for the Game Boy Advance in 2003, a remake of the original “Final Fantasy Adventure,” and “Dawn of Mana” for the PlayStation 2 in 2006, which featured 3D graphics and a more action-oriented combat system.
The series has also seen several spin-off titles, including “Children of Mana” for the Nintendo DS in 2006 and “Heroes of Mana” for the Nintendo DS in 2007, both of which featured gameplay mechanics that differed from the main series.
Overall, the Mana series is known for its engaging gameplay, memorable characters, and charming visual style.
