The Trials of Mana remake is coming to Steam, too

Trials of Mana is a full remake that will bring the action-RPG Seiken Densetsu 3 to English-speaking audiences after years of waiting for an official release. The game was announced at today’s Nintendo Direct, but it’s not just coming to console – you’ll also be able to play on PC via Steam.

The new version of Trials of Mana takes the original Super Nintendo – or rather, Super Famicom – game, and modernises it with 3D visuals, and updated levelling and skill systems. It still has you setting forth with a custom party of three heroes parties (chosen from among six characters) to fight evil monsters and save the world, just as you’d expect from a Japanese role-playing classic.

It will be available early in 2020, though there’s no more specific release date than that. The previous Secret of Mana remake commanded a just-shy-of-full-retail price at $39.99 / £29.99 / €39.99, so you can probably expect something similar here. While the remake is coming to PC, it looks like we can’t say the same for the original.

The Collection of Mana – featuring Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana, and a translated SNES version of Trials of Mana – hit Switch today, and there’s no indication of further releases on other platforms.

Without a PC release date for the Final Fantasy 7 remake, at least we’re getting one reimagined Square Enix classic – even if it’s not quite such a high-profile release.
