Circle of Mana was a card-based role-playing game for the GREE social gaming platform released on March 5, 2013. It brought together characters and items from multiple Mana games; including Secret of ManaSeiken Densetsu 3 and Dawn of Mana. The game was retired on September 30, 2015.


Various worlds are connected through the Mana Tree. The Mana Tree is said to be the source for all of the mana in the world, but now it's being threatened. When this happens, a holy sword appears which heroes use to protect the tree and maintain the balance of the world. A mysterious force is weakening the tree and making monsters appear. Peace begins to dissipate, but you can save the world in Circle of Mana by finding the holy sword.


Circle of Mana revolved around the collection of cards for use in battles against AI opponents. There are different kinds of cards, which are capable of improving in stats and potentially evolving. Copies of identical equipment cards could be combined to improve their power, while character cards can "class change", potentially granting them a completely different set of abilities.

There was also a competitive multiplayer mode known as the "Colosseum".


Due to the nature of the game, it features many characters from previous Mana games.

On 7th September, Japanese gaming site FF-Reunion reported on a number of new trademark filings by Square Enix, one of which was Circle of Mana. The news spread quickly to other gaming sites, Gematsu seemingly being the first. On 10th September, the Gematsu article was linked in the "Weekly Recap" on the official European Square Enix site, practically confirming the title's authenticity.

The timing of the trademark filing suggested an official announcement would be made at the annual Tokyo Game Show, but the event came and went with nothing of the sort.

When the game was officially announced, Siliconera was one of the first sites to report it.

As of 5 March 2013, the game service was live in Japan. The service ended on 30 September 2015.
