Secret of Mana Remake Coming Next Year

Secret of Mana Remake Playstation 4 PS Vita

Ah, Square Enix and their role-playing games. For many fans reading this, Square Enix started and ended with the Final Fantasy series (with Final Fantasy VII leading that charge). While that may be a bit of an over exaggeration, it is not by much. Anyhow, for fans of other role-playing games by Square Enix will be interested in knowing that Secret of Mana is getting a remake on Playstation 4, PS Vita, and Steam. This remake will be available early next year. Those that pre-order now will receive a few unique gifts though so be quick on your feet, folks.

Currently scheduled or global release on February 15th, 2018, Secret of Mana will bring modern visuals and sound to fans that decide to take the challenge of fighting the empire and returning balance to the world. Going on 24 years ago, the release of the original Secret of Mana for the Super Nintendo and Super Famicom console was a hit for Square Enix (back then just “Square” as they had not yet bought out competitor Enix yet).

Secret of Mana Pre-order

The original Secret of Mana told the story of Randi, Primm, and Popoi who are tasked with defeating the empire who want to bring the power of “mana” back to the world. If you realize right now there is something wrong here then you have played more than a few RPG’s in your time. Most gamers know that most empires are not out for the good of the populace, rather they are looking to expand their power and control over that populace. The empire in Secret of Mana is no different. If the empire can attain all eight Mana Seeds then they can restore mana to the world and restore the Mana Fortress (not good at all for the everyday person). You cannot let this happen.

Over the years Square Enix has made Secret of Mana available for fans to purchase. Mobile phones of the time prior to iPhone taking over got a version in 2009. In late 2010 iPhone users got a chance to enjoy an enhanced version which featured a retranslated script that featured many bug fixes. Then in 2014, Android users got a port of the iOS version. The Nintendo Switch (eBay link) saw a version in the release of the Seiken Densetsu Collection on June 1st, 2017. Finally, we have the scheduled remake coming on February 15th, 2018 for Playstation 4, PS Vita, and Windows computers via Steam.
