    Don't want this name associated with ROM hacking, but it was my discord name on the Pokémon mini server when USC made this, so I've changed it to the name I use here and added some context

Legend of the Mana Sword

Hack of Final Fantasy Adventure

Description:

Legend of the Mana Sword focuses on making the first game of the Mana series both a better experience for first time players, and more fun for returning players.

If you’ve never played a Mana game before, Legend of the Mana Sword is a good place to start your adventure.

If you’ve already played later Mana games, it will be familiar yet new.

If you’ve previously played the original (whether it was called Final Fantasy Adventure, Mystic Quest, or Seiken Densetsu) then Legend of the Mana Sword helps the game you remember better live up to its true potential.

Choose one of the two included patches. Your choice mainly affects your main character.

Features include:

  • New title and title screen.
  • Two choices for the main character.
  • Gameplay bug fixes including the infamous Heal bug.
  • Script improvements inspired by the original Japanese script and the lore of later Mana games.
  • Hints improved for some of the more baffling puzzles.
  • Small graphics tweaks.
  • Bug fixes and improvements throughout.

An addendum about addendums: While I welcome feedback many requested changes would be better as an addendum. Legend of the Mana Sword is easily editable with Mystic Editor and I am happy to coordinate if someone wants to use it as a base for a hack or translation.
