A furious beastman and curious cleric were spotlighted in the latest trailer for the high-definition remake of Trials of Mana, originally released in 1995.
Trials of Mana tells the story of six heroes as they battle against the forces of evil, but players only get to select three of them to embark on their journey to save the essence of Mana.
“Originally released in Japan as Seiken Densetsu 3 in 1995, Trials of Mana is a full, high-definition remake of the third entry in the classic Mana series, seamlessly bringing the beloved story and characters to a new, modern era of fans with real-time combat, beautiful 3D graphics and updated gameplay.”
In the trailer released today, we meet Kevin and Charlotte. Kevin is the heir to the throne of the Beast Kingdom of Ferolia and Charlotte, granddaughter to a Priest of Light, is a curious, superstitious scaredy-cat on a mission to protect her friend, according to a press release by Square Enix.
In the first character spotlight, Square Enix took a look at the Duran, a young swordsman from the Kingdom of Valsena, and the Altena princess Angela.
