Sword of Mana is a Game Boy Advance game that is an enhanced remake of Final Fantasy Adventure. It was co-developed by Square Enix and Brownie Brown and published by Square Enix in Japan and Nintendo in other regions. Sword of Mana was released in Japan and North America in 2003 and in Europe and Australia in 2004.

Although Sword of Mana is a remake, it received a few major changes. The game's primary difference is that it removes all connections to the Final Fantasy franchise, such as Chocobo, in favor of recurring elements from the Mana series, a lot of which debuted in Secret of Mana. Another big difference is that the player can choose to have either the Hero or Heroine as their primary character, with each one having their own parallel story.

In 2006, when Final Fantasy Adventure was remade for certain Japanese mobile phones, its graphics were on par with that of Sword of Mana's, although the changes introduced in Sword of Mana were not retained. Final Fantasy Adventure's 3D remake, Adventures of Mana, does not retain the changes from Sword of Mana either, except for the Ring Command mechanic.
