Not to say anything bad about this game; to be perfectly honest, I haven't even played it. I've just wondered why they made a similar game to Secret of Mana instead of just releasing Seiken Densetsu 3 (or both games for that matter). Also, why was this never released in Japan? Off the top of my head I can't think of a single game for a Nintendo console before this that never had a Japanese release, let alone a Squaresoft title.

IMO, this game is tons better then Seiken Densetsu 3.

It's one of my favorite SNES games, and the most underrated SNES game imo.

Because the video game gods ordained it to be so.

Bow and pay homage to it! >:3

While they're probably in the archive, my posts are long gone from this site.

Chirpy--

I'm the lead programmer from SoE, and I can answer your questions:

> I've just wondered why they made a similar game to Secret of Mana

Doug Smith, who wrote Lode Runner, was hanging out with the Square Japan guys at some gathering. He suggested they make an american-motif RPG. They said OK, hired him to do it, and he hired me and a bunch of other people to make it here in the States. Square Japan told us specifically to make a game like SoM with western themes.

> instead of just releasing Seiken Densetsu 3 (or both games for that matter).

SD3 was not released for reasons completely unrelated to the development of SoE. Had SoE not been developed, SD3 would still not have been released.

> Also, why was this never released in Japan? Off the top of my head I can't think of a single game for a Nintendo console before this that never had a Japanese release, let alone a Squaresoft title.

Dunno. They probably figured the Japanese market would be disinterested, but I'm just guessing. We localized for nearly every other region.

This game was awesome

But do you know why exactly Seiken Densetsu 3 wasn't released here?
