What is Visions of Mana?
You take the role of Val - a curious and carefree young man who lives in the Fire Village of Tianeea.
Once every four years, the Faerie visits regions of the world to choose alms - people who are fated to travel to the Tree of Mana, which presides over the world’s vital flow of mana. Val invites his childhood friend to a festival to welcome the visitor, but as the night falls, the sky lights up with sparkling lights and the Faerie chooses her as the alm.
With the blessings of his village, Val sets out on a journey to accompany his friend to the Tree of Mana as her soul guard.
How does Visions of Mana play?
Your journey in Visions of Mana will take you across an expansive semi-open field that you can explore smoothly. The series’ themes of nature and the elemental aspects of mana are captured through the stunningly detailed environments and vibrant, colorful graphics.
These vast areas are packed with secrets to discover and enemies to battle, from fan-favorite staples like Rabites to brand-new monsters. As is tradition for the Mana series, the party-based combat is real-time and fast-paced, with lots of strategic depth - you’ll have to watch your enemies and your environment to prevail in these thrilling skirmishes.
