Oh yeah, so after that out-of-nowhere Heroes of Mana unveiling the other day alongside those other titles, we didn't see or hear anything about Friends of Mana, a previously filed-for trademark. So most people just assumed Friends had been renamed to Heroes. Not so! Friends of Mana today was revealed to be a mobile instalment of the Mana series, confirming our worst fears that despite Square Enix's insistency to fail at producing anything compelling in a crossplatform fashion, Polymorphism™ appears to continue to lead their strategic approach. Too bad. Oh yeah, Friends is apparently an RPG with the same visual style as Children of Mana and uses turn-based combat. More news at 11.
Friends of Mana takes place 10years prior to Legend of Mana.
