I somehow managed to miss that this was coming to PC, so color me surprised. Square Enix revealed this week that the full high definition remake of Trials of Mana will be out for PC (Steam) on April 24, 2020 and there’s a preorder up already if that’s your sort of thing.
Should you bite the bullet and spend your hard-earned cash ahead of time (or actually, within the first month of release, since this offer lasts until May 21, 2020), SE promises to reward your faith with the Rabite Adornment DLC and an exclusive wallpaper set. The game will cost US$49.99 so that in itself is nice (I’m far too used to full price remakes, sadly).
“Trials of Mana” is the 3D remake of the hit Japanese classic RPG released in 1995 as Seiken Densetsu 3.
Experience the beloved adventure fully modernized with quality graphics, an upgraded battle system, character voices, a remastered sound track, extra conversation interludes, and more!
The overlapping story of interwoven destinies changes depending on who you choose as your main character and companions!
This daring tale of overcoming the tests of fate has been given new life! Will these young adventurers be able to use the power of mana to save the world from the brink of destruction?
When the world was shrouded in darkness, the Goddess of Mana drew forth the Sword of Mana to smite the eight Benevodons, monsters of destruction. She sealed the horrors inside the eight Mana Stones, bringing the realm back from the brink. Weakened from rebuilding the world, the Goddess changed herself into a tree and fell into a deep sleep for many years. However, the forces of evil soon sought to free the Benevodons to gain control of the world. They started a terrible war to further their plot and destabilize the kingdoms. Peace was at an end. Mana itself began to disappear from the world and the Mana Tree started to wither…”
Revamped 3D Graphics
