Adventures of Mana

Good news everyone – Adventures of Mana is now available on mobile devices. HOORAY! Hang on, what do you mean you have no idea what the hell I’m talking about? Sigh, let’s recap… 

Adventures of Mana is a remake of the first game in the Mana series which was originally released back in 1991 for the Game Boy as Final Fantasy Adventure in North America and Mystic Quest in Europe (not to be confused with Final Fantasy Mystic Quest) and was later remade for the Game Boy Advance as Sword of Mana.

Final Fantasy Adventure… wait, what? That’s right, back in the day, Square Enix worked on a spin-off Final Fantasy title for the Game Boy. It went on to spawn the entire Mana franchise.

Truth be told, I’ve never experienced a Mana game myself, but seeing as I’m a shameless Square Enix fanboy, it’s something I really should get around to doing at some point. It’s as good a time as any I suppose, because Adventures of Mana is now available on both iOS and Android. Here’s what it’s about, along with its pretty trailer…

Adventures of Mana follows the story of a young hero (that’s you by the way) and a young heroine as they attempt to thwart the Dark Lord of Glaive from destroying the Tree of Mana. The original story remains unchanged in Adventures of Mana but the game is enhanced with updated graphics and controls and a new, rearranged soundtrack from the game’s original composer Kenji Ito.

It looks pretty rad! I may be biased though, because I spotted a chocobo, and I just adore those feathered critters far too much. I think I might be getting the game based on that alone!

If you’d like to play Adventures of Mana too, it’ll only cost… R269.99? Geepers! Either Square Enix are charging far too much for this remake, or our exchange rate is to blame. Hmmmm, I’m thinking it’s both…
