The game recently received an HD remastered version on June 24 on PC, PS4, and the Nintendo Switch. The animation project coincides with the series’ 30th anniversary. Animation production will be handled by Graphnica (Record of Ragnarok) and Yokohama Animation Laboratory. 

Masaru Oyamada, the game series producer of Mana, commented:

When the animation project was first pitched to me, the remastering of “Legend of Mana” was not even in discussion.

I initially attended the meeting without deep thoughts, but when Mr. Yawata from Warner Bros. Japan passionately pitched the “Legend of Mana” animation project (with so much love), I realized I need to create the game as soon as I can.

So rumor has it, that’s how the HD remaster project began. 

Fans of the “Legend of Mana,” please be assured.

The people involved in the project still have the love for the series just the same as back then.

Square Enix describes the series as: 

The Mana series, known as Seiken Densetsu in Japan, is a long-running action-RPG series spanning multiple entries for nearly three decades. The series is known for its enchanting characters, story and music, as well as pioneering an action-oriented approach to traditional JRPG combat. An updated version of Legend of Mana™ is set to release on June 24, 2021, bringing remastered visuals, a rearranged soundtrack, and the “Ring Ring Land” mini-game to the West for the first time.
