Secret of Mana gets limited physical release for PlayStation 4
If you’re looking forward to the Secret of Mana remake but weren’t so sure if you wanted to opt for a digital release, you can now put your hard-earned money toward a physical version. A limited release is coming to PlayStation 4 as a GameStop exclusive in the US.
The JRPG classic is being given a fresh coat of paint with 3D graphics after its original release as Seiken Densetsu 2 in Japan back in 1993. It’s getting new voice acting as well as musical arrangements and even gameplay tweaks. If you want to try your luck with other players, you can even play the game with a new local multiplayer mode.
It looks a little jarring if you’re used to the classic sprites from the original game, but it’s high time the RPG gets an update, especially one that makes it much easier to play on modern systems. It should provide a satisfying RPG fix if you’ve already powered through the last few month’s series of pretty rad releases.
The game is up for preorder now, and if you decide to purchase early you’ll get Moogle and Tiger character costumes for heroes Randi, Primm, and Popoi. The game will also be available for PS Vita and Steam on Feb. 15, 2018 with digital releases on all three platforms. There’s a pretty awesome collector’s edition coming to Japanese fans, but there hasn’t been any word of one coming for western fans.
