This is not well known in the games of our series, but it does not prevent this Legend of Mana from returning as a touch of nostalgia among the players known at the time.
Originally released in 1999, this fourth episode of the series is taken from the legendary saga of Final Fantasy, which takes us back to a magical universe for the PlayStation 4 and Switch remake.
The return is sure to impress fans as the title brings the 1999 Opus to the letter, adding some new features. There is a very special world map, because it is the player who has to compose in something similar to a kind of mincraft – all things considered – before the hour.
Hero, we have chosen gender and name, thus thriving in a world inhabited by different people. Each of them corresponds to a story. Many explorations allow him to move forward in the story and gradually complete the world map.
Unlike the other episodes, the story seems a bit behind, especially due to the structure mentioned above, which means there is no real order to move forward in the game.
As for the remake, it differs from the original by good technique. Pixellart is often put forward, which is a brilliant choice and great for the eye. In addition to the technical aspect, we regret the lack of regular effort of this remake. It’s a shame because the title deserves better.
Legend of Mana, Switch, PS4, PC, 29.99 euros.
