There have been some cool things revealed at the 2023 Game Awards. As you might have seen, I’ve written about some of them. But I’m here to tell you all that a new game in the Mana series has been revealed, and it practically made me jump out of my chair.
Visions of Mana is a brand new entry in the Mana series, which to this point has mostly survived off remakes and a failed gacha game. This new game, from the little we’ve seen so far, looks like everything I’d want in a new Mana game. There’s some flashy Action-RPG combat, a world full of whimsy and magic, and what looks like a variety of spells courtesy of some familiars. It’s all huge Secret of Mana vibes and I am here for it.
While the Mana series has struggled in the past, I can’t help but have high hopes for this one. Some may remember that Secret of Mana was one of my picks for the best SNES games ever, and I’d love to see this series get a modern twist on that classic charm I loved so much in my younger years. Anything can happen, of course. We only have a small trailer to analyze, after all. But my fingers are very crossed for this one.
Visions of Mana will release in 2024. Stay tuned as we learn more about Visions of Mana.
