Remakes and Re-releases

'Final Fantasy' was added to the original release in North America to help with marketing and boost sells; it would later be removed in future remakes. Most the remakes (except for the ones for Japan Mobile and Game Boy Color) also had improved graphics and other new features.

Players can also chose to follow parallel stories of either the heor or the heroine.
Adventures of Mana

The idea for the game came from tproducer, Masaru Oyamada, who wanted all Mana games to be playable on modern gaming platforms for the series' 25th anniversary in 2016. They also wanted to use this as a model to help remake other Mana games. Several new improvements were added due to not having any hardware restrictions from previous remakes.
