Dawn of Mana first look

With this vibrant new 3D world to play around in, Dawn of Mana delivers an environment in which most of the things you see are totally bashable. We saw the hero of the game swing a sword around, killing monsters by the boatload, but we also gazed in wonder as he used some kind of whip/grappling hook to toss around a humongous wrecking ball.

It's pretty clear why Square touts 'touch' as the theme of this game - you touch things and they crumble to bits.

From the snippet of film we saw, Dawn of Mana was seriously action-packed for a fantasy game and the PS2 could be in for another sweet Square Enix title.

Above: All we have to do now is hope that Dawn of Mana is released in the UK
