I think the anime is my number 1 take away. I love the stories from Legend of Mana and always wanted a more focused dive into them. I’d want my hype to be behind the new console title but If I’m honest some of the later Mana games seemed to have lost that magic. So we’ll have to wait and see how it turns out.

@cinematicsunset: I would love a well-made Mana console game, so I'm glad they're doing it. I think if they are inspired by the Trials remake, they'll be on the right track, and hopefully they learned their lesson from the likes of Dawn of Mana and other post-Legend console releases! There's just so much potential.
