Square Enix is Bringing Back its First Game

When game companies Square and Enix merged in 2003, JRPG fans were on edge as to what masterpiece the new juggernaut was sure to make. They made a game. And now, 11 years later, they've brought it back. It's not the game you think it is.

I'm still hoping and praying that they can realize the potential still left in Secret of Mana. The original was a masterpiece. A new HD 2D multiplayer sequel could be amazing. The world could be way larger and the leveling could go further than before. It could have some type of procedural engine that made the layout of the world map and dungeons change up each playthrough to add to replay value. Kinda like Zelda 1 when you beat the game, but way more intricate and indepth in how it changes the layout of the map and enemies/bosses. It just needs to be revived, and done properly, not like the crappy sequels.

Never before have I agreed so much with a comment here! SoM was my first JRPG!
Unfortunately the main man behind Secret of Mana, Koichi Ishii is no longer with Square (he's at Grezzo, who did Ocarina of Time for 3DS).
Meanwhile, have you seen Rise Of Mana? It's a new 3D Mana game that doesn't look like total garbage, but of course it's only on iOS and only in Japan. FML

I think I saw something on it. I haven't researched it though. I just want a new one, 3D or 2D, but a serious one. One that is in the vein of the original, not the weird sequels with weird gameplay. I want that Zelda-type gameplay of the first, with multiplayer like the first one. 3D would be fine, considering it wouldn't look all polygonal in this day 'n age. I just want the damn series back, and back on track.

ok this re leasing thing is good but not good for ALL games, if they wanna remake anything, remake all the tony hawks games including undergrounds, and all the dragonball z games, and all the twisted metal games

saw the trailer, it has a good concept, who knows

Damn, I was thinking 'The Bouncer' for some reason, damn, I'd love a remake of that.

Such an underrated game. I loved it. In fact, it was my first PS2 game.
