Masaru Oyamada Teases Something New for Mana Series after Seiken Densetsu Collection
Seiken Densetsu Collection, a compilation of the very first 3 Seiken Densetsu (Mana) games, has just been released in Japan. To celebrate it, Weekly Famitsu put up a new coverage of Seiken Densetsu Collection on its release week, which includes a runback of the entire Mana series as it is celebrating its 25th anniversary in June, and an interview with the game's producer Masaru Oyamada.
Although the interview mostly focused on the contents of Seiken Densetsu Collection, there is also a small blurb where Oyamada teases something new on Mana series would be coming once players have completely finished playing through all 3 games in the compilation. Translation of the short segment is available after the jump.
Famitsu: We think all the series fans have been also eagerly waiting for development of a new title after Seiken Densetsu Collection, but how's the prospect in the future?
Oyamada: Of course, with the 25th anniversary as an opportunity, I think I also want to announce a new development. Please look forward to the information in the future! [The timing] is still not decided yet, but at around the time [players] have thoroughly played Seiken Densetsu Collection, maybe there could be some kind of movement...?
Seiken Densetsu Collection is a compilation of Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden (Final Fantasy Adventure) for Game Boy, Seiken Densetsu 2 (Secret of Mana) and Seiken Densetsu 3 (Japan-only title) for SNES, and it is released for Nintendo Switch on June 1 in Japan.
