Threads Of Fate Hits PSN, Legend Of Mana Coming Soon
Many veteran role-playing fans really miss the old Squaresoft. But the good news is that you can get your old-school Square fix on the PSN in any number of ways.
Not only can you nab any Final Fantasy release on the original PlayStation, but there are several other gems available as downloadable PS1 classics on the Network. Another hit this week - Threads of Fate - and according to Andriasang citing the Japanese Twitter page for producer Shinji Hashimoto, Legend of Mana is next on the list. Released back in 1999, the game blended real-time combat with a unique form of world exploration (and creation), and although some Secret of Mana fans weren't necessarily thrilled, the game's appeal was undeniable. Using all hand-drawn artistry, it remains one of the most impressive visual accomplishments from any generation. It really is a must-play for RPG fans of a time long past, especially if you didn't get a chance to see it in action when it first released; it really was amazingly attractive.
We don't have an estimated release date but we're satisfied with "soon." So what other RPGs should be released to the PSN? How's about Star Ocean: The 2nd Story? It was an Enix title, was it not? ...or is that one already on the PSN?
