The remake of the third game in the Mana series, Trials Of Mana, will be released in Asian regions on April 24, Square Enix have announced. Set to be released on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam, the action RPG will retail at the RRP of S$69.90.
To whet your appetite, Square Enix is releasing a free demo for Trails Of Mana today (Mar 18). The demo is set to release at “noon” … probably Japan time, and will change, depending if you’re getting it on the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Store, or on Steam. In the demo, you’ll get to play your chosen hero ‘s opening chapter, and which party members you take on this adventure is entirely up to you. And if you bought the game, you’ll be able to resume your journey in the retail version using save data from the demo.
You can also check out the final trailer for Trials Of Mana at the top of the page.
The remake of the classic RPG, also known as Seiken Densetsu 3 (1995), will feature modernised graphics, an upgraded battle system, character voices, extra conversation interludes, and more. The revamped battle system will allow you to jump, dodge and fight with combo attacks like modern action RPGs.
There’s also a remastered soundtrack, where all 60 tracks from the game have been rearranged under the supervision of Hiroki Kikuta, the original composer. Players can also switch to the classic versions of the songs in case you miss the old-school feel.
If you pre-order the game by May 21, you will the “Rabite Adornment”, which, when equipped, will allow your character to earn more EXP in battle until level 10.
The Trials Of Mana remake will launch Apr 24 on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam.
