Trials of Mana headed to Switch, PS4 and Steam in 2020

Seiken Densetsu III is coming to current consoles and PC with a lot of new bells and whistles.

After years of remaining exclusive to Japan, Seiken Densetsu III is finally spreading its wings. The game is headed west in 2020, where it will appear as Trials of Mana.

Currently in development for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam, Trials of Mana is a proper remake of the Mana game some consider the very best installment in the series. Thanks to emulation and fan translations, a number of dedicated gamers have already experienced what many promise is a truly expansive adventure.

On the newer platforms, the game is receiving the sort of careful attention that was previously lavished on the recent Secret of Mana remake. Environments and character models are much more detailed, and the world looks more on par with a contemporary experience.

Not everyone will welcome the update, but that's okay because those individuals can play a localized version of the original game as part of the Collection of Mana compilation, which arrived on the Nintendo eShop earlier today.

Seiken Densetsu III has a lot of hype behind it, and it seems unlikely that any remake can live up to that. Even so, modern gamers will at last get the chance to see what they have been missing. Have you played the original game, and are you excited about the chance to experience it in revised form next year?
