Legend Of Mana Anime Announced By Square Enix
Square Enix has been going all-in on anime adaptations these past few years, with the recently released The World Ends With You series being the most recent example. Now, it looks like the Japanese publisher has greenlit yet another anime adaptation, this time based on the beloved Legend of Mana game.
In a press conference, Square Enix announced the upcoming Legend of Mana -The Teardrop Crystal- anime series. Said series is being produced by Warner Bros. Japan LLC., Graphinica Inc, and Yokohama Animation Lab, the latter two of which created the opening cinematic movie for the Legend of Mana remake. According to Square Enix, the anime will follow the events of the game, with the below teaser art acting as a bit of a confirmation of such:
“When the animation project was first pitched to me, the remastering of ‘Legend of Mana’ was not even in discussion,” revealed Mana series producer Masaru Oyamada. “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. Fans of the Legend of Mana, please be assured. The people involved in the project still have the love for the series just the same as back then.”
The Legend of Mana -The Teardrop Crystal- anime series is in production and will air worldwide, though it’s unknown at this time which streaming platforms will air it.
