*Rumor* Square making a Secret of Mana MMO for Wii?

These are a list of rumors from the latest issue of EGM, the mag is not out yet but a good source confirms that they are real. Read on:

-Nintendo will release an earthbound compilation for the DS, complete with touch screen functionality
- Square Enix is working on a MMO Mana game for the Wii
- If Dragon Quest DS (Joker) and Dragon Quest Wii sell well, DQ9 will go on the Wii

Could these rumors that are supposed to be rumors in the latest EGM be true? I'm not too familar with Dragon Quest, but I am with the Secret of Mana games. Lets just hope.

What do you think about it? Do you like the Mana series?

Hex said...

Never played it,but looking forward to play it and will own it as well. Im a big fan of rpg games.ive seen videos of mana and has caught my eye but thats about it.

Is it better than finalfantasy series?

Metaldave said...

I would say Final Fantasy is a better seriers, but the Wii is only getting Crystal Chronicles so far and not an actual Final Fantasy game, like FF:XII

The Mana series is extremely good though and would sell great as an MMO.

Metaldave said...

I have Hunters but not tetris. Lets work on getting a game of Mario Kart going first.

Hex said...

Cool,looking forward to it man plain on leaving gameon by a lap or two.

Metaldave said...

I'm not that great at the game myself because I'm always so busy doing this site or other things. I'll give you all a challenge though.

I'm still waiting for Game on to give me his friend code.

Hex said...

Secret of Mana was the greatest game ever made I truly hope Nintendo does this I have always loved the mana series over all others but FF is 2nd.

Square, Mana, and turds... Sad but true. Nothing will likely recapture the magic of the second two of the series. Everything i've read about the newest games they've released sound like they're a real let down. However, if they did release a Mana mmorpg, and it was on wii, and it really was, really really good!!! i might consider buying a wii just for it. Unfortunately, most mmo's don't hold my attention for more than two to three months at a time, so, even if it were good, it might be a waste of money for me personally.

that's just my two bits. The idea has potential, but that potential could go either way. Mana just hasn't had the creative "love" other series have. I don't consider FF to be a series, more of a brand. Few of the games follow sequencially, wereas, as of Legend of Mana, the Mana world does have an established background, and with the two newer releases, they have had more back-to-back titles that relate to each other.

The Best games ever made were Secret of Mana and Secret of Evermore. If they made a MMO for one of the for wii i might crap my pants.
