Final Fantasy Adventure remake prologue, characters detailed

English option present, but not yet functioning, on official website.

Square Enix has relaunched the official Japanese website for its upcoming Final Fantasy Adventure remake, as well as detailed the game’s prologue and characters.

The official website includes an “English” option in the upper left corner, but it currently cannot be selected. Coupled with a recent trademark in Europe (and Canada), we can infer the game will be likely be titled Adventures of Mana when it launches in English.

Get the prologue and character details below.

■ Prologue

Adventures of Mana

Towering high above the clouds on Mount Illusia…

Enshrined at the mountain’s peak is the worshiped Tree of Mana

The Tree of Mana that perceives all the power of the universe and grows on its energy

Legend says that those who touch the tree will obtain eternal power…

The Glaive Empire’s Shadow Knight is planning to use its power to conquer the world through slaughter and dismay

As “Battle Servants” of the Glaive Kingdom, the heroes are put to work by the Shadow Knight

For his own amusement, the Shadow Knight forces his Battle Servants to fight monsters in deadly combat

Each day, they’re taken from their jail to fight for their lives, and each day’s victory earns them just enough food to survive another day

But the injuries caused by repeated fights and the irrecoverable fatigue caused the Servants to fall one by one…
