Square Enix’s Adventures of Mana launches on Android
Final Fantasy Adventure, the old Square Enix title originally released for the Game Boy in the early 90’s, has been remade for numerous gaming systems since its original launch – and for good reason. It’s considered to be one of the best RPGs ever to be released on the Game Boy, and it also spawned an entirely new game series, called the Mana series. Seeing as how Square Enix is doing everything in its power to bring most of its classic titles to mobile, it was only a matter of time until this game was next on the list.
Square Enix has just released a remastered version of Final Fantasy Adventure, called Adventures of Mana, to the Google Play Store.
For those unfamiliar with the story, you play as an unlikely hero that’s forced by the Dark Lord of Glaive to fight monsters in a gladiator pit day in and day out. In the distance sits the Tree of Mana atop Mt. Illusia. Legend has it that this sacred tree will grant eternal power to anyone able to lay their hands upon its trunk. This kind of eternal power is something that the Dark Lord is very interested in, and it’s your job to make sure that doesn’t happen. You’ll be able to collect various weapons throughout your journey, each divided into six categories. There are also eight different spells to use in multiple occasions that will help you restore lost HP or removing ailments from your character.

This remastered version is built with mobile devices in mind. You’ll be able to navigate around via a virtual joystick that’s accessible anywhere on the screen. There’s also an auto-adjust feature that will help you keep control of your character if you happen to move your thumb from its original position.
Adventures of Mana is now available in the Google Play Store for $13.99. We know this isn’t cheap, but luckily there are no in-app purchases to be found. Follow the Play Store link below for the download.
