Square Enix Ltd., teased new footage of the opening cinematic for Legend of Mana™, the remastered version of the fourth installment in the classic Mana series, as part of its SQUARE ENIX PRESENTS summer showcase.
In Legend of Mana, new and returning we will step into the shoes of the protagonist, embarking on a journey to find the mystical Mana Tree seen in a dream, only to discover that the world map is empty. Throughout their adventure, we will encounter multiple stories, a colourful cast of characters, square off against fearsome monsters in real-time combat and explore the vast world of Fa’Diel, all while experiencing the beloved RPG’s timeless story.
In The Escad Story Arc, we will follow four childhood friends – Escad, Daena, Matilda and Irwin – through the span of their friendships and encounter their conflicting motives in the wake of the Faerie Wars that took place over a decade prior. Additionally, we will join Larc, dragoon of Drakonis in The Dragon Killer Arc as he embarks on a mission to slay the Dragons of Knowledge as well as challenging another dragon, named Sierra.
As we progress through the game, we will also be able to access the orchard in the secluded dell which is inhabited by Trent – an ancient tree who can grow fruits and vegetables used to feed pets, paint golems or alter equipment.
Legend of Mana details to the remastered version
- Exclusive Equipment– we can forge one of a kind equipment and also alter existing equipment at the Equipment Smithy. Similarly, once the instrument workshop has been established, it can be used to manufacture enchanted instruments with potency.
- Featured Pets – We can capture eggs and hatch pet monsters which features supportive Synchro Effects to help us secure victories in battle. The pets live at the monster corral in the grounds of our home and can quickly be made stronger by sending them out to play the Ring Ring Land mini-game.
- Magical Golems – Golems are magical life-forms that we can collect which have been imbued with the power of Mana and will sustain us in combat. We can control a golem’s HP, stats, and can equip them with over 50 different offensive and defensive abilities to help defeat enemies in battle.
