Trials of Mana, which originally released as Seiksen Densetsu 3 for the Super Famicom in 1995, is celebrating its 24th anniversary today. To mark the occasion, creator Koichi Ishii shared some kind words, and series artist Haccan shared a special drawing. You can see the art from Haccan above, as well as the words from Ishii below.
“When designing the six main characters, the very first one to have their image take shape was Lise. She moves forward without averting her eyes from the harsh trials. She’s a character who is the embodiment of such strong will. I believe growth comes from having such strong wills. And to you all, please do enjoy this ‘adventure of growing’ together with Lise.”
