Pre-registration on iOS and Android is now open for Echoes of Mana, the crossover free-to-play action RPG bringing together characters throughout the long-running Mana series. If you remember, the game was one of many announcements during last year’s 30th anniversary event. Check out the English trailer below, which puts the spotlight on combat and a few cutscenes, plus a few screenshots further down.
The Japanese preview for Echoes of Mana contains different footage, highlighting the cast of heroes from Adventures all the way to Children of Mana as well as offering a peek into some of the menus, so I’m embedding it below in case you’re curious.
In Echoes of Mana, More Players Signing Up = More Rewards
Players will receive certain gifts depending on how many sign up. Here’s the table, with the number of registrants on the left and the corresponding rewards on the right.
50,000 – Spirit Crystal ✕ 800
100,000 – Spirit Crystal ✕ 900
150,000 – 3★ Primm (Boomerang) x1
200,000 – Spirit Crystal ✕ 1,000
300,000 – 4★ Memory Gem illustrated by HACCAN x1
Worth noting is that Primm from Secret of Mana will be unlockable at 150,000 players registered. If you’re wondering, HACCAN is a freelance illustrator known for contributing to various Mana games, Fire Emblem Heroes, and even the forgotten Nintendo DS gem Avalon Code. His work has been well received by players of those games (including myself), so it makes sense that exclusive art by him would be a selling point. I don’t doubt that the highest-tier prize is worth it.
