"What to call this gem of a game? Seiken Densetsu 3? Final Fantasy Adventure 3? Secret of Mana 2? Or do we just call it a tragedy–because it isn’t an instant RPG classic?
Whatever the case, Seiken Densetsu 3, affectionately referred to by Americans as Secret of Mana 2, was one of the first Square RPGs to be released after the success of Chrono Trigger. SD3 has stood the test of time, even if it’s never actually been released overseas."
