It’s a great time to be a weeb, err I mean anime fan, err I mean RPG fan. Seriously though, no matter which you are, Japanese publishers are finally bringing a wide array of titles to western shores without hesitation nowadays, and it’s definitely something that has made a lot of gamer’s happy.
Square Enix put a smile on all JRPG fans faces recently, as the company has announced that a Secret of Mana remake, is in fact in the works and will be arriving on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC via Steam in February of 2018. This announcement pretty much confirms all of the recent rumors online regarding a potential 3D remake of the 1993 version of Secret of Mana, the sequel to Seiken Densetsu – which has also recently received a recent release under the name of Adventures of Mana. The Secret of Mana remake will feature real-time combat, which is quite common among newer JRPG’s these day’s. Many fans are currently holding their breath for a multiplayer option of some sort, as the original release contained local multiplayer for up to three players.
Everyone will be able to get their hands on the Secret of Mana Remake next year, as the game launches worldwide during February of 2018 for PS4, PS Vita, and PC. For those of you who may be interested in going “all-in” with the release; the game will be receiving a physical release in Japan as well as a collectors edition, which features a pop-up book, a OST soundtrack CD, and figurines of the three main characters. Western versions of the title however will only be available digitally via the Steam Store and PlayStation Store.
