Secret of Mana Gets a Remake on PS4, Vita, and PC

Like Adventures of Mana, Seiken Densetsu 2 is getting a polish.

Around an hour ago, it looked like PlayStation's Latin American division had leaked news of a Secret of Mana remake for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on its official Facebook page. The post has since been removed, but we were firmly in rumor territory. Square Enix must have decided it wasn't worth leaving unconfirmed, as the publisher has released a trailer confirming the remake. The title is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Steam on February 15, 2018.

The new Secret of Mana offers new 3D graphics, fully voiced characters, a re-arranged soundtrack, and local multiplayer according to a post on the official PlayStation Blog.

"That’s right, you heard Randi in the trailer and you’ll finally get to hear Randi, Primm, Popoi and many other characters talk and express themselves throughout their adventure!" wrote Square Enix product lead Francis Santos. "To add to that, the game will have language options which will allow players to experience the game using Japanese voices and/or subtitles."

Those who preorder the game on the PlayStation Store get all three characters as avatars and two sets of downloadable costumes.

The remake follows a number of games in the current Mana/Seiken Densetsu revival. Earlier this year, Seiken Densetsu Collection was released in Japan for the Nintendo Switch, collecting the three Seiken Densetsu games in one package. That came after the release of the all-new Rise of Mana and the Seiken Densetsu/Final Fantasy Adventure remake Adventures of Mana for iOS, Android, and PlayStation Vita.

The Secret of Mana remake looks to be in the same style as Adventures of Mana, so perhaps we can hope for a third worldwide remake, this time of Seiken Densetsu 3?
