Home Mobility Secret of Mana out in the open for iPhone

Square Enix has let the cat out of the bag and released Secret of Mana, a remake of the super popular Super Nintendo RPG, now for iPhone and iPod Touch.

The main novelty of the mobile version of the game is the new control scheme that utilizes the touch screen, making it possible for players to play the action-packed title more smoothly than before, if the publishers are to be believed.

Other than that, the graphics and sound are largely untouched and gamers can expect a faithful remake of their old much loved friend.

Secret of Mana, a 1993 game, was released as the sequel to Final Fantasy Adventure for the Game Boy and is the second installment in the Mana video game series.

Rather than using the traditional turn-based battle system of games like Final Fantasy, Secret of Mana utilizes real-time battles akin to the Legend of Zelda series, also employing typical RPG elements and a unique "Ring Command" menu system.

With its brightly-colored graphics, expansive plot, innovative cooperative multiplayer gameplay, and acclaimed soundtrack by Hiroki Kikuta, Secret of Mana was an influential game in its time.

You can purchase Secret of Mana for iPhone or iPod Touch from the App Store for $11.99.
