Secret of Mana, originally known in Japan as Seiken Densetsu 2, is a 1993 Action Role-Playing Game for the Super Nintendo, developed and published by Square. It is the sequel to Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden, also known as Final Fantasy Adventure in North America and Mystic Quest in Europe and the prequel to Trials of Mana, released shortly in 1995.

Instead of using a turn-based battle system like its contemporaries, it uses a real-time action based system with a power bar mechanic for charging up special attacks, coupled with the Ring Command menu system allowing for the player to freeze time and make decisions in the heat of battle and co-op multiplayer that allows second and third players to join the action anytime. If second and third players are not available, the two party members will default to AI, which can be customized to the player's wishes in the menu.
