This page features all the Secret of Mana things that you have to actually put in a dedicated other thing to make something happen. The explanation of our rarity scale is here.

Secret of Mana Cartridge (1)

Bluebomber‘s Fountain of Mana

This was the cartridge that was released in America. It’s distinct from English versions in the rest of the world. Obviously, finding a boxed version in mint condition is exponentially more difficult than a loose item (which goes for everything else on this page).

Secret of Mana PAL Cartridge (1)

Pictured is the Australia/New Zealand version of the PAL cartridge. PAL was the standard video format outside of the US, which used NTSC. This local version is more difficult to find than other releases as there simply weren’t that many made.

Secret of Mana Collectors Edition (3)

This is the less common English version of the 2018 remaster’s Collectors Edition. See the Japanese release below for more info.

Secret of Mana PS4 (1)

For those that like physical media, this is the PS4 version of the 2018 remaster. Otherwise, you can easily acquire it on Steam.

Seiken Densetsu 2 Cartridge (1)

This is where it all started—the Seiken Densetsu 2 Super Famicom cartridge, released a few months before Secret of Mana as it was called in America. The included manual can easily be found separately. It has unique development screenshots as even the manual was finished before the game was.

Seiken Densetsu 2 Collectors Edition (2)

In addition to the PS4 game, you get the Pop-Up Storybook, the action figures, and an impression of the soundtrack that’s unique to this bundle.

This is the Japanese version of the PS4 release.

Seiken Densetsu 2 PS Vita (2)

This is the release for the handheld PS Vita.

Store Promotional Video (5)

Dr. Sheexy

One of the rarest SoM collectibles, this was a promotional VHS that played in stores that sold the game. While the tape runs two hours, it likely played a clip over and over until it needed to be rewound. The nature of the tape is still being researched, but it’s thought to contain unique beta gameplay footage.

VJump Video (5)

The source of the one minute promotional clip that’s been floating around forever. Actually getting the video is nigh impossible.
