The list author says: "Number 8. The mana series is an adventure RPG, with multiplayer options in most of them. Several characters and similar themes are in each one, but it is unknown if or how they are related. Magical Vacation was developed by the team that created Sword and Heroes of Mana, made up of former Square Mana developers. Seiken Densetsu 3 for the Super Nintendo remains unreleased in the US. Rise of Mana- Vita.
Vanillaware's Princess Crown for the Sega Saturn and PSP has never been released in the west. Grand Knights History was announced for release, but has been cancelled."
"A boy finds a strange sword, and is exiled because of it. He soon discovers that only this sword can save the world from an evil empire, and what they have awakened. For 1-3 players. For the Super Nintendo. Also downloadable for Wii and iPhone."
"Choose between six characters, and build a unique team of three from the remaining. Unreleased in the US, this game features a class change system, where your characters can follow a path of light or darkness. 1-2 players. For the Super Famicom, or Super Nintendo with a proper adaptor. Japanese language only."
"A very unlinear game, with tons to do, and lots of replayability. Play just about any level in any order, raise pets and crops, make your own golem, create weapons, and befriend plenty of NPCs. Memory card bonuses: FF8 will yield a chocobo as your first pet, SaGa Frontier II unlocks the Heishishorin sword, and Chocobo Racing gives you the FastestWheel item. For 1-2 players. For the PS1 and PSN."

"In a land beset by war, every nation fights for the ultimate prize in power; the cauldron. Yet few suspect that this path is hurtling the world towards its inevitable end. Based on Norse mythology and with 5 playable characters, this is an absolutely gorgeous game (as every game by these developers are). Action RPG for the Playstation 2, and on PSN."
"Lillet arrives at magic school and into a time loop. She must relive the same 5 days in order to save all the inhabitants of the school, but when everyone has their own agenda, they do little to help the situation. RTS game for the Playstation 2, and on PSN."
