Games that Need a Remake or Re-Release: Secret of Mana

While everyone can squeal and jump for joy as Square Enix continues to make over or re-release every damn Final Fantasy game known to man, this little fangirl is still completely lost without her favorite Square Enix game still sitting at the bottom of their importance pile.

Secret of Mana was an action role-playing game released on the Super Nintendo on October 3, 1993 in North America, but in Japan it was released as Seiken Densetsu 2 on August 6, 1993.

The game featured three characters, a young boy named Randi, a young girl named Purim and a young sprite named Popoie, who all join together to help reforge the legendary Mana Sword, defeat the empire that wants to control the mana seeds and ultimately restore the Mana Fortress that once tried to destroy the world.

There is a glimmer of hope though ...

While I thought I was doomed to either download the game through a ROM or finally cracked and buy a Super Nintendo to play the game again, I found out that this September Japan is getting Secret of Mana on the Virtual Console which means that we might be getting the game in North America soon.


I still would love to see Square Enix make a version for the Nintendo DS either as a re-release or as 3D remake, but a virtual console release would be friggn' awesome too.

Agreed. But I'm hoping one day the programmers will go back and add in all the content that supposedly got deleted when the game was changed from a CD-ROM title to a regular old SNES cartridge.
