    A remake of the first title in Square Enix's Mana series*, Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden is due out sometime soon on Vita/Android/iOS for 1400 yen. If it does well, the publisher hopes to make remakes of other entries in the series.

    *Originally known as Final Fantasy Adventure in North America and then as Sword of Mana through its GBA remake. In Europe, the original was published as Mystic Quest.

    I liked FFA and Sword of Mana and will probably like this too! (How many games get two full remakes, btw??)

    Played Sword of Mana on the GBA and I thought it was pretty good. Shall buy again if localized even if I'm not a big fan of the character models. Looks a bit "cheap".

    Wow, that would be disappointing. I'd rather replay sword of mana on GBA than this on a smartphone.

    The Vita version is still being made, but it's not going to be released outside of Japan. That's despite Square Enix localizing the mobile versions.

    And after the success of Bravely Default where SE admitted they needed to bring more J-RPGs overseas, this is dissappointing. I really wanted to see the Vita get a release of this title.

    I'm actually kind of excited to see the Mana games coming back. I hope there is an English version of this.

    I always hoped for a Legend of Mana 2, since it was cut short because of cost issues.

    I'm still griping that I still can't play (read) Rise of Mana and Circle of Mana...

    It's disapointing... The Vita version is that I want since I don't like to play on my smartphone.

    Shot them a tweet asking where's the vita version, so many people asking for the vita version they can't ignore all those people that want it, but they probably will :(

    LOL. Almost all replies to the tweet are asking for the Vita version. The Vita community is voicing their opinion and it's good to know that, shame SE doesn't see that.

    So ... there is a Vita version of the game in Japan. They will translate the entire script for North America and Europe IOS and Android, but they won't bother with a Vita version for the west. That only makes sense if the team who is developing the Vita version has stated that they are not available to do any localization work (rather move on to the next project). It can't be because Square honestly think there is no market for the game on Vita in the west.

    An overwhelming percentage of the comments against the Twitter message are people questioning why the Vita version is not being localized. Hopefully that will get some attention from Square Enix. Even if there no Vita version at launch perhaps it could happen down the road.
