Secret of Mana is coming to Virtual Console? But I thought Square Enix only put games and series on VC if they didn’t see any future in th– oh. Oh.
So yes, this development is fraught with peril. Like Randi here, we covet the shiny thing — for him a mysterious sword; for us a totally sweet classic action RPG for eight bucks, a fraction of what it sells for on eBay. Yet we know that if we take it, bad things will happen. For Randi, that means unleashing a plague of monsters and being forced to hang out with an annoying sprite until he killed the Luck Dragon; for us, the fact that it will mark the presumptive death of the Mana series.
Then again, did you guys play Dawn of Mana? Someone grab a shovel. We gotta bury this corpse before it stinks any worse.
