SQUARE ENIX breathes new life into the Mana series, revealing a full remake of Trials of Mana, entirely rebuilt with revamped action-RPG battle, leveling and skill systems and modern 3D graphics, is coming out in early 2020 for the Nintendo Switch system, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and STEAM.
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 also revealed that Collection of Mana is now available via digital download from the Nintendo eShop for $39.99. A physical release will also be available at participating retailers and the Square Enix Store beginning August 27. Collection of Mana ushers players into the enchanting world of the Mana series with the first three titles, FINAL FANTASY Adventure, Secret of Mana and the first-time availability in the West of the highly requested classic release of the original Trials of Mana. The three game compilation now includes a convenient quick save feature, and allows players to adventure with friends through a local multiplayer mode in both Secret of Mana (up to 3 players) and Trials of Mana (up to 2 players).
Collection of Mana is rated E10+. Trials of Mana is not yet rated. Please visit the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) website at www.esrb.org for more information about ratings.
