Dawn of Mana

An Action RPG game for PlayStation 2 by Square Enix in the Mana series

Dawn of Mana box art

Long ago, when the world was at peace and magic was yet unknown to man, a beautiful isle called Illusia floated in the center of the Inner Sea... Over the island towered the great Mana Tree, the source of all life. There it stood since the dawn of the world... But over time, the tree turned to stone and slept as though death had come to it at last. So begins the story of how a boy came to wield a sacred sword and how a maiden became a goddess entwining the fate of spirits, mortals, and the entire world into a tale of hope and despair.

Seiken Densetsu 4 details revealed

The newest issue of Japanese Shonen JUMP confirms that Kouichi Ishii's Seiken Densetsu 4 will indeed release as an action adventure on the Playstation 2 and that Nao Ikeda (of Legend of Mana and soon-to-be Children of Mana fame) is in charge of character designs. Thus far characters revealed include "Eldi", the sixteen year-old protagonist and village infant find; "Lichia", a priestess in tune with nature and Eldi's childhood friend; and her pet "Puck", who has joined on separation from his family. Their adventure begins with an invasion from a foreign army that will doubtless spiral into an epic tale when Seiken Densetsu 4 releases sometime next year.

Square Enix reveals Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 4

So there we go, polymorphism? swerves back into full swing with the arrival of what's presumably the World of Mana brand: a new issue of Weekly Jump reveals that Seiken Densetsu DS is known as "Children of Mana", and that there's also a true sequel on the way to some unannounced main console (presumably this-gen, so PS2 or GC). While Children of Mana is to be a 2d action-RPG in a similar vein to previous entries into the series, the sole screenshot of SD4 depicts a fully 3d world more reminiscent of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, which was pretty Mana-esque to begin with. Children of Mana will hit the DS winter 2006 in Japan (a year to go, yes), and SD4 has no release date. Yet.1
