Secret of Mana for iphone is needed!


Looks like the game went mobile in Japan, please bring it out here, and Seiken Densetsu 3 translated while they're at it!

That game wasn't very good. All you had to do was spam a particular spell on each boss and it would never get a hit in. Too easy.

I disagee. This was was one of my all time favorites games if not my favorite from Squaresoft. It was super fun was the only game of it's type and quality that and had mutiplayer at the time (up to 3 players) that I can think of.

Plus the music was just incredible

I want it !!!!!

Me too! Love the multiplayer ability, would be nice to port that in with the iphone, it would be a killer app! They need to bring this to the iphone, and they've needed a portable version for some time now!

When I got my SNES from my friend it came with quite a few RPG games... and I think aside from maybe Super Mario RPG, this is my favorite. But I still think that the GBA sequel, Sword of Mana, was a bit better. It might just be me, but I enjoyed that game a bit more. I got really far in it too, but then I lost the cartridge... It was such a good game, and I think I'd rather see that one ported than Seret of Mana, although I could'nt really complain either way.

Secret of Mana is one of the best games of all time, but I really would not hold your breath for a port. I was surprised enough to see it show up on Virtual Console...

I'd buy it if it came out, but I'm not expecting it at all. I'd REALLY like to see SD3 officially released in english. The patch for the SNES rom is great, but the game doesn't work very well unless you're using an emulator on a computer. Not holding my breath for that either.

Secret of Mana must be one of my all time favourites! Great game, catchy music.

Somehow the sequels never really did it for me, they never quite lived up to the original.

I love SOM and is truly one of my all time favorites, but I would also love to see Seiken Densetsu 3 ported over and translated as well!

Also loved Legend of Mana for PS1 even though it wasn't loved by many, loved the hand drawn graphics and building worlds on the map

I think the chances of SOM coming stateside is better than most people think.... although I could see Chrono Trigger being ported of SOM
