Square Enix has announced that Heroes of Mana for the DS will be making its way to the states later this summer:

Following the release of Heroes of Mana in Japan on 8th March, where it has failed to set the charts on fire, Square Enix has today announced that the excellent real-time strategy game developed exclusively for the Nintendo DS is scheduled to arrive in late summer 2007. This entry in the World of Mana series continue the legacy of the Mana name, as it provides a fresh and unique take on the familiar universe that has already garnered many fans around the world.

The game hasn’t done that well in Japan, but I’ve really been looking forward to this announcement.  I really liked Children of Mana, and I like the new strategy approach in Heroes of Mana.
