Adventures of Mana is a video game that has lived many lives. It was first released as a GameBoy game called Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden, a more action-oriented spinoff of the Final Fantasy series that would become it’s own Mana series. That GameBoy game was released in America as Final Fantasy Adventure and in Europe as Mystic Quest (not to be confused with the Final Fantasy Mystic Quest that I played earlier this year).
In 2003, the game was brought back into the Mana series when it was re-envisioned as Sword of Mana for the GameBoy Advance. If that weren’t enough, the game was once again remade as Adventures of Mana for mobile phones and the PlayStation Vita.
I’ve been feeling guilty for ignoring my Vita, so I decided I’d give the little device some love. Adventures of Mana would be the 252nd video game that I’ve finished.
