News: Square-Enix announces new details for Dawn of Mana and Heroes of Mana.
Square-Enix has announced that Dawn of Mana, the long awaited PS2 prequel to the Mana series, will ship on May 22. The game, the first in the series to be in 3D, will also come packaged with a music CD of soundtrack selections if it is purchased from Amazon.com, Game Crazy, GameStop or EB Games.
Square-Enix also confirmed that a strategy RPG set in the Mana universe, Heroes of Mana, will be coming to America this Summer. Heroes of Mana is being developed by Brownie Brown (a company made up mostly of ex-Square employees who worked on Secret of Mana) and will change the way players look at the series.
"Generals will plan, plot and strategize their way to victory on the battlefield. Command an army of heroes, creatures and beloved rabites with the use of the Nintendo DS Touch Screen, and experience an all-new perspective on the ever-evolving battle for the Mana Tree. Skilled players can see how they rank among other players around the world through the Nintendo Wi-Fi ranking system."
We'll have more on both Mana games soon.
