Adventures of Mana, the remake of the original Final Fantasy Adventure for the Game Boy, is now available on Google Play and the App Store for $13.99 USD. Producer Masaru Oyamada had a message for the fans, which you can read below.

Hello there everyone.

This is Masaru Oyamada, the producer of Adventures of Mana.

This game was originally released on the Nintendo Gameboy in 1991 as Final Fantasy Adventure, and went on to become the start of the Mana series.

As you can see by the fact it even had "Final Fantasy" in the title, many of the staff who worked on the project were deeply involved with the Final Fantasy series, such as Mr. Koichi Ishii, the father of Mana, as well as Mr. Yoshinori Kitase and Ms. Kazuko Shibuya.

In doing this new 3D remake, we made sure not to upset any of what made it great in the first place, while putting in things that were impossible to depict under the limitations of the original Game Boy hardware and making it more comfortable and intuitive to play, as befits a modern game. The sound side has been upgraded too, with the original composer, Mr. Kenji Ito, returning to add an updated and even more dramatic re-arrangement of the soundtrack.

I will be very happy to see Adventures of Mana, the starting point for the whole Mana series, being played again by the people who played and loved it when it first came out, as well as by new players who will get that same emotional experience that people did the first time round.

And don’t forget the secret phrase "knight for a day" when you set out on your adventure…

And for those of you who are despairing about the lack of the Japan-only Vita version, there may yet be a glimmer of hope, as Square Enix says that they have heard the outcry of the fans who felt spurned by the mobile-only release of Adventures of Mana. Let's keep our fingers crossed!
