Last year saw a fantastic performance honoring the 25 anniversary of the Seiken Densetsu series of games. The Seiken Densetsu 25th Anniversary Orchestra Concert was held in Tokyo on March 24th, 2017 sponsored by Square-Enix, and now after several months, the concert will be released in physical format.

The Seiken Densetsu series, also known as the Mana series of games, features several games that started with Final Fantasy Adventure, continued with the wildly popular Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3, and continued through several games, including a remake of Secret of Mana later this year.
