Yes, definitely, but only if you like old school game design. It's a faithful remake of a classic from 1991.

I 100% recommend this title IF you played and enjoyed the original Final Fantasy Adventure on gameboy. It's a faithful remake with better graphics and a bit more dialogue.

So...an enhanced port, then. A remake implies changes to most every facet of the game. Gameplay, OST, visuals, and even story. A game with a new coat of paint and some more dialogue does not a remake make.

It does have 'modern' music though. You have the option to use that or the original GB soundtrack.

For a game to be a "port" it has to be reusing the same assets and/or code to at least some extent, which Adventures of Mana does not. Adventures of Mana has entirely new graphics (in an entirely new dimension, so it's not like they could just reuse the old code and slap new sprites or textures in place of the old ones), the option to use a newly arranged soundtrack, some slight story differences, and a few new gameplay elements (for example, you can attack diagonally). What makes it faithful is that they followed the original design nearly to a T, such that you could look at maps for the Game Boy game and use them for Adventures of Mana too.

From least to most drastically changed, things go:

direct port -> enhanced port -> faithful remake -> reimagined remake

I would say definitely worth playing, IMO. I bought it and I love this remake of Final Fantasy Adventure. Great game but it's not for everyone. I would say look up some YouTube videos to see the game play (just to be sure you don't waste your money).

I won't be surprise if it's canceled for Vita. This game is difficult anyway playing alone.

I think they are thinking of secret of Mana....a whole different game but it’s possible to beat solo...my mom did it during the snes days
