We talked about Final Fantasy IX become an animated series last week, and now Square-Enix announces similar plans for Legend of Mana – it becomes an anime.
Titled Legend of Mana: The Teardrop Crystal, it will be produced by Warner Bros. Japan and animated by Graphinica and Yokohama Animation Lab. Mana series producer Masaru Oyamada commented on it with the words:
When the animation project was first pitched to me, the remastering of Legend of Mana was not even in discussion. I initially attended the meeting without deep thoughts, but when Mr. Yawata from Warner Bros. Japan passionately pitched the Legend of Mana animation project (with so much love), I realized I need to created the game as soon as I can. So rumor has it, that’s how the HD remaster project began.
There is no release date announced, but you can find the official website here.
Legend of Mana was released on the original PlayStation in 1999. A remastered version for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC arrived June 24th of this year.
