Secret of Mana 3D remake to hit PS4, PS Vita early next year
The memorable adventure of Randi, Primm and Popoi is reborn as ‘Secret of Mana’. This RPG is being brought back to life in 3D! Secret of Mana will come to PS4 and PS Vita digitally, on February 15, 2018 worldwide.
“I’ve heard of Secret of Mana, but I never played it and I’m just used to more modern graphics.”
The above is basically the gist of conversations Square Enix have had with most of gamers, and could possibly describe how many of us feel about the game.
Here’s what you should know about the remake:
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.
After playing the original, watching this trailer will hit you right in the nostalgic feels. So, if you played the classic version, but wonder what new things you can look forward to outside of the completely revamped 3D graphics and updated gameplay:
VOICED CHARACTERS: That’s right, you heard Randi in the trailer and you’ll finally get to hear Randi, Primm, Popoi and many other characters talk and express themselves throughout their adventure!
To add to that, the game will have language options which will allow players to experience the game using Japanese voices and/or subtitles.
A NEWLY ARRANGED SOUNDTRACK: There is newly arranged soundtrack that pays tribute to the original.
LOCAL MULTIPLAYER: Yes! Sit down with two of your friends (up to three players) to experience the adventure together.
To give you the lowdown on the story: Secret of Mana revolves around a courageous young man named Randi.
“I think Randi will successfully make headbands cool again (some may argue they were always cool, and I would agree.) Anyway… Randi inadvertently discovers the Mana Sword, a weapon of great power, and finds out that he can harness the great power of Mana,” said Product Marketing Manager for Square Enix Francis Santos.
“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,” he said.
