Secret of Mana, which originally launched on the Super Nintendo with some revolutionary (at the time) gameplay mechanics for RPGs, has been ported to a number of consoles over the years, allowing players to enjoy the classic title at their leisure. On February 15, 2018, however, fans will get the chance to experience it with new 3D graphics and other modern console enhancements. Square Enix announced the remake this morning will be arriving on the PS4 and PS Vita, along with a trailer to show off its new features.
SQUARE ENIX completely revamps the classic Secret of Mana title with high-definition 3D graphics and voice-over for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system, and STEAM. Scheduled for global digital release next February 15, the beloved volume in the MANA series retains its long-held charm while incorporating improvements such as upgraded gameplay for modern platforms and a newly arranged musical score.
Originally released in 1993, Secret of Mana faithfully tells the story of Randi, Primm and Popoi as they battle a treacherous empire in order to reclaim the power of Mana and bring the world back to order.
Those who preorder from the PlayStation®Store will receive special character costumes: “Moogle Suit” for Randi, Primm and Popoi, “Tiger Two-Piece” for Primm and “Tiger Suit” for Randi and Popoi, as well as three PlayStation™Network avatars. Those who pre-purchase the game, or purchase the Day 1 Edition within one week of the launch on STEAM, will receive the three costumes as well as a downloadable wallpaper.
Will you be picking this up early next year?
