“Time flows like a river… and history repeats…”
On a mid-90s roll, some of the team behind the Final Fantasy games broke off to create a follow-up to Square’s 1991 Game Boy title, Seiken Densetsu (aka Final Fantasy Mystic Quest). This sequel was intended to be a more ambitious and action-driven type of RPG for the – then forthcoming – SNES CD add-on. When the relationship between Nintendo and Sony broke down, Seiken Densetsu 2 was repurposed for cartridge and released in the West as Secret of Mana. In this podcast, Leon, Brian, Josh and Leah see if they can (re)discover the magic of Randi, Primm and Popoi’s colourful and whimsical adventure.
