    :arrow: source (IGN)

    Nothing known other than the trademark being registered (no Genre, System, release timeframe, everything but the name is unknown) as of yet, but still, looks like a new Mana/Seiken Densetsu game is coming along.

    If it ends up being a iOS/Android only thing, then....... :hateit:

    I hope it's a new game in the Mana series, but not like the last ones, I want a good one like the old ones, which never got localised (although they did get fan translations).

    Same here, just about the only Mana title I liked. Very addictive game, a lot of buttonmashing and samey though.

    Have you tried the older games in the series? Like Secret of Mana 2, it's really good, well, most of the games in series are pretty good. z.z
    Children of Mana wasn't that bad, but it lacked in comparison to the older ones imho. =S

    Nope, I haven't had a decent system to emulate it and I don't like using PC for that.
    I'll try them sometime, but right now I'm into MGS.

    I prefer the SNES ones. Everything else was just not as interesting for me.

    Looks like Square Enix is really coming full circle with the franchise.

    Square-Enix does this shit all the time. They'll hype this up to the max then disappoint everyone who gave a shit.

    Bet it is a remake on ios or android.
    Most likely it is a remake of the game that was already a remake on the gba (don't know what it was called... the original game was mystic quest on the gameboy, the gba one is... something of mana).

    Honestly, "Circle of mana" to me sounds like it could be a collection of some kind, circling all of the mana time eras. Secret of Mana, Children of Mana, Legend of Mana, nailing all of the distinctly different circles of time that the mana series has.

    I bet this means nothing as companies tend to to trademark names for reasons of 'just in case,'

    I've seen a lot of fan excitement for this around various websites. It's like the Circlejerk of Mana.

    New Mana game. Now I'm left questioning; will it actually exist? will it exist on a platform I give a fuck to play it on? (anything but ios or android) will it even see an English release?
    Time will tell and it'll probably tell bad news.

    Mmm, I'd like to see a new Mana game. And I do think that a new old styled mana game for the 3ds would be super sweet.
