Legend of Mana will be getting its own anime this Fall amidst a crowded season, and now the series has finally revealed a release date for Legend of Mana: The Teardrop Crystal with a new promo! The Mana series was one of Square Enix’s (before they were fully Square Enix as we know it today) major role playing game franchises, and the fourth in the line is likely the one fans often remember most when look back at some of the 1990s’ biggest releases. Now this title will be living on in a whole new way as its story will be returning with its debut anime adaptation.
Legend of Mana: The Teardrop Crystal officially announced that it will be releasing on October 7th in Japan. The series now becomes one of the many franchises to look out for over the course of the increasingly packed Fall 2022 anime schedule, and thus becomes yet another major series to keep an eye on over the last few months of the year. To give fans a new idea as to what to expect from the franchise’s new anime, a new promo was released to show off more of the story changes the anime will be making to that original game.
