This will be the first new mainline game in 15 years.

Square Enix announced Visions of Mana last night at The Game Awards. Coming more than 15 years since the release of the previous mainline entry, Visions of Mana will go back to the franchise's roots as an action-RPG. Players will embark on an adventure as Val, "a soul guard assigned to protect his childhood friend, who has been chosen by the Faerie as the Alm of Fire to travel to the Tree of Mana and rejuvenate the mana flow."

Something tells me that something will probably go awry and sidetrack the straightforward task by several hours or days.

Visions of Mana is looking at a 2024 release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. There was no Xbox One version of the game included in this announcement.
