Secret of Evermore is an action RPG game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System which was developed by Square's short-lived American division, and was the only game to have ever been developed by them. Secret of Evermore was first released in North America in October 1995, and it was published by Square. Shortly after, in February 1996, the game was released in Europe and Australia, where it was published by Nintendo instead. A Japanese release had reportedly been planned, but was quickly canceled. Drawing its inspiration and mechanics from the Mana series of video games, most notably Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore began as a side project of said American subsidiary, simply codenamed "Evermore". With a contemporary tale involving a boy, his dog, and a fantasy world gone wrong, Evermore is notable for being one of the few titles developed exclusively in and for the North American market. It is also known to contain several small references to earlier Square titles.

For a time, Secret of Evermore was believed to be a stand-in replacement for Seiken Densetsu 3, a game that would not see an international release until many years later. In retrospect, however, this rumor was proven mostly false, as the two games were merely coincidentally released around the same time, with neither American nor Japanese developers knowing of the other team's progress.
