    Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana is the first game as part of the World of Mana compilation launched by Square-Enix.

    In the middle of the island of Illusia stands the famous Tree of Mana. Several years ago, a great disaster took place at the base of the tree and many lives were lost, leaving the main characters as orphans. A brave young boy and girl used the Sword of Mana to save the world from disaster. Now, years later, the main characters set out to investigate the details of the event that took so many loved ones away from them.

    The game retains real-time battle mechanics of previous games in the Seiken Densetsu series, but is closely being modeled after Secret of Mana. The environments also retain the interactivity with weapons and items seen in certain Seiken Densetsu titles. New to the series is the Dual-Weapon system, which gives the player the ability to wield two weapons at once on the X and A buttons - a long range and short ranged weapon.


    Square-Enix's Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana for Nintendo DS™ is in stock today at US$ 48.90 only. Available at the same time are the following five Scratch Guard DS sticker sets, available at US$ 7.90 each only:

    Blade Dancer: Sennen no Yakusoku (also known as Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light) is a fantasy RPG featuring anime-style characters, animated movie sequences, 3D visuals and network play. You are taking the role as Shane, who is heading off to an island as part of your training. There you will meet Ferris, a girl who is in the midst of great trouble and needs help.

    Blade Dancer includes fully 3D fields, with a battle system slightly different from normal random encounter systems - strike a beast, and you'll end up entering battle. One of the main elements of the game is the "Crafting System," where you combine items that you have collected into new items. The game stores recipes for you, although the more adventurous will want to try out their own creations. The game also features networking systems for up to four players to connect together.


    Blade Dancer: Sennen no Yakusoku for PSP™ is shipping today as Chinese language Asia version at US$ 49.90 only. A Japanese version of the game will be in stock later this week at US$ 52.90 respectively.
