There's a website up now: http://mana-lom-tc.com/

From the pearl in the logo, my guess is it'll be the Jumi storyline from the game.

Will probably be as good as TWEWY anime... Anime adaptations of video games are usually terrible

I really hope Pablo work on this, the background art for the game would be ideally suited for them. Since the game is less about a main story, and more about a series of side quests, how does this play out as a TV show? Will it be more slice of life with an episodic format.

A game that barely has a plot and is part of an IP that barely values writing is getting an anime 2 decades after its manga adaptation came and went. I see. Gaming anime simply refuse to improve in quality.

I think it could be a fun enough adventure fantasy anime.

FFIX, a game in SE's best selling series, sold 5.5m gets an animation made by a French studio (still hasn't been announced by SE) while Seiken Densetsu, which has sold over 6m as a series, gets an anime made by Japanese studios and was announced by SE. Just something to note.

I'm pretty hyped since it was my favorite series out of all of the games.

Legend of Mana just had an HD remaster come out, so I'm sure that's a factor here.
