Seiken Densetsu 3 - Feb '12

Unofficially called, Secret of Mana 2, Seiken Densetsu 3 is a part of the Secret of Mana series.

Seiken Densetsu 3, AKA Holy Sword Legend 3, is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) for Nintendo's Super Famicom as a part of the Mana series.

The game features three lengthy main plotlines, six different characters, each with their own storylines, and a wide range of classes to choose from, which provides each character with an exclusive set of skills and status progression. The game also makes use of a time progression system, with transitions from day to night and weekday to weekday in game time, adding to the game's challenging gameplay.

Seiken Densetsu 3 plays very much like its predecessor Secret of Mana, as it employs a real-time combat system, making use of a ring menu which provides the player with quick access to magic spells, items and character information, amongst other options. One of its main differences, though, is that the range of characters is doubled to six, with the player choosing the three user of his or her party when commencing a new game.

Story:
According to Seiken Densetsu 3's in-game lore, the Mana Goddess created the game's world by forging the powerful Sword of Mana and defeating eight benevodons (God-Beasts in the fan-translation) with it, sealing them within eight Mana Stones, before turning herself into the Mana Tree and falling asleep. The game is set at a time when Mana starts to fade and peace has ended, as some people plot to unleash the benevodons from the stones so as to gain ultimate power, politically and magically. Heroes of Mana is a direct prequel to Seiken Densetsu 3, taking place 19 years before the latter's story.

Is any ending Allowed?

There are three specific characters you need to choose for the hardest difficulty.

Yeah, I had already beat this game back in '09, but it was in FULL mode. I'm playing with different characters to get a different story. This is probably one of my favorite SNES games ever.

I've only played a bit, but it's an amazingly well rounded game.(even if I did choose a really annoying main character) I believe that it's the most advanced SNES game that I've seen.

I'm about half way through this. Even though February is over, I'll still master it since it's a great game.
