If you missed it, check out our review of the Mana series’ latest console entry, Legend of Mana.

Legend of Mana was initially released in 2000 on PlayStation as one of the few Mana titles introducing new gameplay elements to the series. Players can choose their protagonist and carve out a unique adventure using puzzle pieces that they can place on an ever-growing map. The goal is to complete three narratives as they culminate at the Mana tree.

This version features all of the gameplay found in the PlayStation release with additional options for re-arranged music, easier battles by turning off encounters, and a new mini-game now and ring-ring land, which looks similar to a Tomagachi where players can take care of monsters.

Legend of Mana is currently available on  PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam,  iOS, and Android.
