Square’s 1995 action-RPG, Trials of Mana, is getting the remake treatment. Rebuilt from the ground up, this remake promises HD visuals, alongside revamped gameplay, leveling and skill systems.
It is expected to release onto PS4, PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch in early 2020.
Trials of Mana is a full high definition remake of the third entry in the Mana series, previously exclusively released in Japan in 1995 as Seiken Densetsu 3. Trials of Mana tells the story of six heroes as they battle against the monsters of destruction that threaten a world where Mana has been weakened. Players can customize their own party of three, selected from six unique characters, to experience different stories.
Square Enix has also revealed that Collection of Mana, which contains the series’ first three games — Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana and the classic version of Trials of Mana — is now available on the Nintendo eShop. It can be yours for $39.99. However, if you can wait and would prefer a physical edition, one is coming out on August 27th.
The aforementioned three game collection offers a quick save feature and local multiplayer options for two of its titles (Secret of Mana and Trials of Mana). It also marks the first time that the latter game has been available in the west.
