Square Enix's Echoes of Mana is now available on iOS, servers online soon
What you need to know
- Echoes of Mana is now available for download from the App Store.
- The 2.7GB download is now available but you need to wait for servers to come online before you can play.
- Square Enix says its server should be ready on April 27.
Those looking forward to taking the latest Square Enix iOS game for a spin won't have to wait much longer — Echoes of Mana is now available for download in the App Store.
While the game is now in the App Store and you can indeed download the 2.7GB monster, you can't quite play it yet. The servers required to make the game work will come online tomorrow, April 27. With that in mind, it might be wise to get the game downloaded now so that you're ready to go when the big day rolls around!
There's plenty to look forward to once that happens, too. Check out the trailer to get a feel for what's going to be on tap in just a few short hours.
Gamers can look forward to 2D action RPG antics with what Square Enix is calling "simple controls." A Co-op feature will also allow players to have friends over to help with the tougher bosses when needed, too.
You can download Echos of Manage from the App Store now. It's a free download, but again, those servers need to be running before you can jump in. There is a healthy sprinkling of in-app purchases to look out for, too.
