Gather together Mana enthusiasts, there’s some exciting news we’ve got to share. Trials of Mana is available to play today!
In our current age of video game remakes, the third installment of the Mana series may not be as high-profile as other remakes but it’s a blessing to long-time fans and a beautiful introduction to newcomers. Japan originally released the game as Seiken Densetsu 3 in 1995 (yep, it’s a classic), but now the third installment of the series is available in high-definition and in 3D.
Players will have the opportunity to reunite with memorable characters as they adventure across a fantastical, colorful world with powerful enemies and trials to overcome. Characters can upgrade their classes and learn hundreds of different abilities and after completing the game new characters can be discovered that were not apart of the original release. Post gameplay also includes new classes and new challenges that will test players’ skills.
This is an exciting remake with its vibrant 3D world, noble heroes, and classic RPG elements. To celebrate its release, series artists HACCAN created brand new artwork, and it’s gorgeous.
Whether fantasy RPG fans have played any of the games in this series or not, it’s definitely worth taking a look at. The visuals in Trial of Mana are a stunning array of color and cartoonish fantasy that keeps eyes locked on the screen. Just the images alone show how beautiful this game is.
For players who have downloaded the demo, they may continue their saved files in the full release. This is a nice mechanic that allows players to jump right back in where they left off. Also, anyone who purchases the game before May 21 for the Nintendo Switch or PlayStation 4 will receive the Rabite Adornment DLC. This will allow players to gain more EXP after battles up to level 10. Anyone purchasing the game on Steam by the same date will receive the same DLC and an exclusive wallpaper set.
Trials of Mana is available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam. See more information here.
