Not long ago, Square Enix made news of a Secret of Mana remake public. The title has been confirmed for release on February 15th 2018 on PS4, Vita and Steam. Here’s the US version of the trailer which for some reason does not contain any logo for Steam. In fact if you look at the Playstation blog they just say: “Secret of Mana will come to PS4 and PS Vita digitally, on February 15, 2018 worldwide.” However Square Enix have stated that it is definitely coming to Steam.
“The game will faithfully adapt the beloved story and top-down gameplay while adopting modern 3D graphics and controls. Meaning that the game has been fully rebuilt from the ground up, but still remains true to the whimsical gameplay of the original. In this new remake, you can expect the great game all your friends have been saying you missed out on, reborn.”
The adaptation of the game will also include some new features for an enhanced version of the game.
- Audio Updates – including a newly arranged musical score and voiced characters.
- 3D Graphics – revamped visuals for the entire game; a vivid, Mana-filled world rebuilt in 3D for the first time.
- Upgraded Gameplay – the original system has been reworked in an effort to realise a modern action-RPG with improved gameplay.
- Dialog scenes added – several core scenes from the original story now newly visualized in-game.
- Local Multiplayer – Yes! Sit down with two of your friends (up to three players) to experience the adventure together.
Secret of Mana revolves around a courageous young man named Randi. Randi inadvertently discovers the Mana Sword, a weapon of great power, and finds out that he can harness the great power of Mana. He then embarks on a quest to defeat the evil forces attempting to control Mana, and is joined by a tenacious and caring noblewoman named Primm, and a mischievous yet kind sprite named Popoi. Together, the trio take on a treacherous empire in attempts to bring balance to the world.
