Want the Seiken Densetsu Collection in English? Let Square Know You Care

The best way to get Square-Enix to translate the Seiken Densetsu / Mana game collection for the Nintendo Switch is to let the company know we want it.

News by Nadia Oxford, .

There are many obstacles in the way of a perfect world. Not all of them are easily dealt with, so we must strive to achieve perfection in realistic ways.

Here's a simple movement that'll put humanity on the path to utopia: Get Square-Enix to localize the Nintendo Switch's Seiken Densetsu collection for western audiences.

Nostalgic Secret of Mana Fan? Look to Mobile for Your Fix

Between a new remake of Final Fantasy Adventure and a remastered version of Secret of Mana, lonesome Mana enthusiasts may like what mobile offers -- despite the platform's flaws.

Is it possible? Maybe! One of the M2 developers handling the Switch ports believes it's worth letting Square-Enix know English-speaking audiences are interested in a western release.

Go on. Give Twitter your energy. If you're interested, try tweeting Square-Enix, and Square-Enix's European account. Be polite! Be concise! Do your part to make the world a better place.

Now, if only there was a way to convince Square-Enix to include the mobile port of Secret of Mana and the PS Vita / mobile remake of Final Fantasy Adventure in the collection. One thing at a time, I suppose.

    Think Twitter isn't the best place. Their costumer service email might actually be more helpful. I mean it worked with Dragon Quest (with help with spamming Nintendo as well).

    @nadiaoxford Do it. Just saying just doing Twitter might not be the best while customer service email (or like with DQ mail them directly) would hit them harder. Don't know how SE feels about fan translation (guessing like with most Japanese developers not that fond of) but if they could somehow use that it would make things a bit easier to do than to just try to redo SD3 completely.

    M2 is developing the mana collection. They also handled the monster world ps3 games, including the localized monster world IV...

    So its not entirely out of the realm of possibility

    Seiken Densetsu 3 is an incredible game--especially when you are able to experience the co-op game play. A friend and I put almost 90 hours into it completing all three story arcs. The character combinations are endless and the difficulty varies based on which combination of characters you choose. I am doubtful that we will ever see an English translation, but we can definitely hope.

    Square Enix also localized Romancing SaGa 2 showing that it is not completely impossible for the company to kick up old ground. Even though it was only released on smartphones...

    Wonder if SoM could be remade towards their original vision for the game.

    Been saying we want SD3 since we realized it came out, not going to pretend they're actually going to care now... That said, it does seem like the kind of thing that Switch owners would love to have, for a relatively small development cost, now doesn't it? I'm sure there's something to that thought, but I guess we'll never know what that is.Edited April 2017 by fstim82

    Another option is searching for the Hong Kong release as these often include English subtitles & menus even if the Japanese release do not. As the Switch is region free, it'll work in other regions.

  • I want this sooo bad please make a US English release. I love Final Fantasy Adventure/Adventure of Mana and Secret of Mana. Heck I even love Legend of Mana even though it's not in this collection. Please bring Seiken Densetsu 3 to America in English.
