Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water (ふしぎの海のナディア Fushigi no Umi no Nadia?) is a Japan-exclusive multiplatform video game released from 1991 to 1993. It is based on the anime series Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water.

Versions[edit]

Family Computer[edit]

Fushigi no Umi Nadia (translated: Nadia of the Mysterious Seas) released 1991 by Toho for the Famicom console. Based on the characters from the NHK animated TV series of the same name.

The player controls a cast of characters in a simple looking strategy battle game. Battles are carried out through an RPG style turn based system.

Sega Mega Drive[edit]

Namco published an adventure game for the Sega Mega Drive. While it is viewed from an overhead 2D perspective, it is similar to a point-and-click adventure game. The player must talk to people and collect items to solve puzzles and advance through the game, but there are no combat elements to the game. There is a password feature to allow the player to resume from the beginning of each chapter. This game was released on March 19, 1991.

The plot of the game mostly follows the outline of the original, but it diverges from the storyline in many ways. The introductions of Marie, Gargoyle, Emperor Neo, and the climactic moments, for instance, are drastically different from the show.
