Square Enix’s Adventures of Mana (a remake of Game Boy cult title Final Fantasy Adventure) released in the West just yesterday, but something was missing for English audiences. While the game appears on iOS and Android platforms in Japan and North America, the Vita port is at this point a Japanese exclusive. As the Vita has become a goldmine for those in the West looking for obscure and fantastic JRPGs, there was obviously a lot of fans who were upset that Adventures of Mana was skipping PlayStation’s handheld.
However, all hope is not lost for a Vita port as Square Enix apparently heard the rumbling of the online community. Square Enix Europe recently tweeted:

The page contains a post with the announcement and info for Adventures of Mana. However, on an updated portion at the end the development team had this to say:
“We’ve been listening to your feedback and because of your passion for the game, we’re going to look into making a PS Vita version of Adventures of Mana for the west. We can’t guarantee we’ll be able to make this happen but we will see what we can do.”
So if you’d like to see Adventures of Mana not be confined to just smart phones, tweet at SE Europe and go to the Square Enix blog post for the game and tell them that yes, we do want AoM on the Vita!
