Video Game Ad of the Day: Secret of Evermore

Secret of Evermore is a somewhat unfairly maligned later SNES release from Squaresoft. The name got a lot of people’s hopes built up, with a lot of them foolishly thinking that it was a sequel to Secret of Mana. When it was revealed that Secret of Evemore was developed for the United States market, obsessive fans automatically assumed the game deprived them of the sequel to Secret of Mana, Seiken Densetsu 3 and declared it terrible, regardless of its actual quality. It’s a common misconception – the reality was that Secret of Evermore was developed by a newly assembled Squaresoft team based in the United States.
