Between Final Fantasy VII Remake and Persona 5 Royal, it’s a busy season for hugely popular JRPG remakes, and another classic game just got a modern revival. Square Enix’s Trials of Mana released April 24 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC, so fans of the Mana series fan finally return to its imaginative world. And if you’ve held off on picking up Trials of Mana so far, you can currently grab it for its best price yet on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Normally $50, Trials of Mana is currently on sale for $40.
If you’re not a longtime fan of the series, here’s some quick background: Trials of Mana is a remake of Seiken Densetsu 3, the sequel to Secret of Mana and the third game in the Mana series. Seiken Densetsu 3 never released officially in the US, but it finally became available last year as part of Collection of Mana on Nintendo Switch, which compiled the first three Mana games and retitled the third game Trials of Mana.
The Trials of Mana remake was announced alongside Collection of Mana, and it’s a full reimagining of the original RPG with modern 3D graphics. Character voiceover support has been added, along with a remastered soundtrack, a new episode you can play after the ending, an ability system, character leveling, and more.
Like the previous games, Trials of Mana takes place in a high-fantasy world with an ethereal energy source known as Mana, which was used by a goddess to create the world and seal away evil beings known as Benevodons. Flash forward to Trials of Mana, and the world is once again in danger of being destroyed by the Benevodons. The story follows a group of heroes as they journey to reclaim the goddess’ legendary Mana Sword and prevent the deadly Benevodons from unleashing havoc on the world. There are six playable characters in Trials of Mana, and at the beginning of a playthrough, you’ll pick one of them to be your main character and two others as companions (the remaining three characters will still have cameos within the game, but they won’t be playable), adding some variety to how you can experience the overarching story.
If that all sounds interesting but you want to test out the gameplay, there’s a free demo for Trials of Mana available now on the Nintendo Eshop, PlayStation Store, and Steam. You can also read our Trials of Mana review for more information about the game.
