Mana Goes Mobile
Square-Enix brings the series to the wireless platform
Hot on the trail of the Heroes of Mana announcement for the Nintendo DS made just a few days ago, Square-Enix has revealed yet another Mana title in development as part of the World of Mana project, though it may not be on the platform you'd expect.
Friends of Mana, as the new game is titled, will be available on mobile phones, featuring the series' trademark action-RPG style gameplay and unique art design.
With a 2006 release date set in Japan, it's really anyone's guess on whether or not North American gamers will ever see the title make it overseas. Bearing in mind that Square-Enix's previous mobile success, Final Fantasy VII: Before Crisis, is apparently still on its way over here, there is some hope for a Friends of Mana localization.
