There will be a three-hour long Mana series 30th anniversary livestream planned for 27 June at 18:00 JST, as announced by Square Enix. Mana fans can tune in to the 30th anniversary livestream via Youtube, Niconico, and Twitter.
According to Gematsu, fans can expect a full walkthrough of the series’ 30-year history, beginning from the 1991 Final Fantasy Adventure to the Legend of Mana remaster coming 24 June. New information about the future of the series will also be announced, featuring Susumu Imadachi (Eleki Comic), Grezzo game creator Koichi Ishii (voice only), and Mana series producer Masaru Oyamada.
The series has had mobile-only releases that were limited to Japan, which have also since ceased service. Rise of Mana is one of them, which was also available on the now defunct PS Vita, having shut down in 2016 with Square Enix purportedly exploring other ways that the game may be delivered in another form. The Mana series is seeing somewhat of a resurgence in the past few years, with ports of the original games, 3D remakes of Secret of Mana and Trials of Mana and Legend of Mana‘s remaster coming out more or less consecutively.
In any case, stay tuned to the stream.
