Seiken Densetsu, meaning "Legend of the Holy Sword", is a series of Action RPGs by the renowned japanese video game developer Square (best known for the Final Fantasy series). They have been released in english-speaking countires in varying forms:
- Seiken Densetsu
For the Nintendo Game Boy, translated and released in english as Final Fantasy Adventure. It is not a Final Fantasy game in any way; Square merely hoped to use the well-known Final Fantasy title to boost sales. Besides, "Legend of the Holy Sword" sounds dorky in english.
- Seiken Densetsu 2
For the SNES/Super Famicom, commonly known to english fans as Secret of Mana, is one of the better games in the series.
- Seiken Densetsu 3
For the Super Famicom, was never released in english by Square, causing much outrage among fans. You CAN play it in english, however, since the ROM has been hacked and translated. You can visit their web page ( http://www4.ncsu.edu/~nscorlet/sd3/ ) for more info.
- Seiken Densetsu: Legend of Mana
For the Sony PlayStation, is the latest game in the series.
