Fantasy Violence, Suggestive Themes
This is a role-playing game in which players control characters trying to prevent evil forces from taking the power of Mana. From a third-person perspective, players explore fantasy worlds and battle various enemies (e.g., monsters, soldiers, animals) in frenetic melee combat. Players use punches/kicks, swords, spears, and magic to attack enemies; combat is highlighted by impact sounds, cries of pain, and light effects. Some female characters wear low-cut outfits that reveal large amounts of breasts/cleavage; one scene depicts dancers performing as the camera pans and swirls around their bodies.
When the world was shrouded in darkness, the Goddess of Mana drew forth the Sword of Mana to smite the eight Benevodons, monsters of destruction.
She sealed the horrors inside the eight mana stones, bringing the realm back from the brink.
Weakened from rebuilding the world, the Goddess changed herself into a tree and fell into a deep sleep for many years.
However, the forces of evil soon sought to free the Benevodons to gain control of the world.
They started a terrible war to further their plot and destabilize the kingdoms.
Peace was at an end. Mana itself began to disappear from the world and the Mana Tree started to wither...
This daring tale of overcoming the tests of fate has been given new life! It's now fully modernized with quality graphics, an upgraded battle system, character voices, a remastered sound track, extra conversation interludes, and more!
This overlapping story of interwoven destinies changes depending on who you choose as your main character and companions! Will these young adventurers be able to use the power of mana to save the world from the brink of destruction?
