09.15.06 - 3:36 PM

In the newest edition of Famitsuu, Square Enix announced yet another DS title in form of Seiken Densetsu: Heroes of Mana. The newest installment of Kouichi Ishii's classic franchise returns with a completely new battle system: A combination of real-time strategy and RPG elements. Chrono series mastermind Masato Kato, who previously worked on Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana, returns as scenario writer. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance character designer Ryouma Itou and Akira Oguro are in charge of the game's character designs, while Yoko Shimomura is composing the soundtrack. Seiken Densetsu: Heroes of Mana is currently only 35% complete.

Players will use an airship as a mobile base of operations and summon monsters to assist them in the game's real-time battles. The game's protagonist is a young man by the name of Roger. Roger has a bright and diplomatic personality. He is living in the Kingdom of Pedan and two years ago joined the country's military.

Seiken Densetsu: Heroes of Mana has yet to receive an official release date.
