Secret of Mana is getting the 3D remaster treatment

Matt Sayer 25 August 2017 NEWS


The classic SNES RPG is receiving a complete visual and audio overhaul.

Out of the blue, Square Enix has today announced that the beloved Super Nintendo JRPG Secret of Mana is making its return in a 3D remaster for PS4, PS Vita and PC via Steam next year.

This new Secret of Mana will remain faithful to the original game in terms of story, but Square Enix is promising upgraded gameplay elements better suited to the modern gaming landscape in addition to the reworked visuals and a newly-arranged musical score.

As the trailer shows off, this isn't on the scale of something like the Final Fantasy VII remake, but it's still a fair effort to translate a 2D RPG into a fully 3D environment. Hopefully Square Enix has used that to iron out some of the kinks the 25-year-old game exhibits in the harsh light of the modern day. And hey, it still looks better than the wonky Shenmue III.

Secret of Mana is due to hit PS4, Vita and PC on 15 February 2018.
