World of Mana encompasses a pair of new RPGs – one for the DS, and one for what appears to be a current generation console. That's according to Japanese Jump Magazine, which has finally finally finally unveiled the games after literally months of Square Enix's teasing the c[an't say that here, numpty – Ed].

The DS game is called Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana, and should be released next year in Japan, while the other is a proper 3D console system due out, well, presumably next year but nobody's saying. It's called Seiken Densetsu 4.

For the confused, "Seiken Densetsu" is the Japanese series name, and it's number 4 because the first Secret of Mana SNES title was actually Seiken Densetsu 2. Then there was SD 3, also SNES, which was never released outside Japan. (Bastards.) There was also Legend of Mana, which was, on PSX, and Sword of Mana, a GBA title. Those don't seem to fit into the lineage though.

Hurrah then. Now we can concentrate our yearning a bit instead of just brooding with non-specific lust.
