Until very recently, Trials of Mana (aka Seiken Densetsu 3) was the best Mana game no one in the West got to buy. It took the formula established in the beloved classic Secret of Mana and improved on it in every way, but its Stateside release was cancelled and a fan translation was the best anyone could do for over two decades.

Now, finally, a light at the end of the tunnel: not only was the original game just now released in English as part of Collection of Mana for Switch, but a remake is on the way that looks pretty good. This week the release date for Trials of Mana was revealed during Nintendo's latest Direct: April 24, 2020.

Square's press release tells more.

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 4, 2019) – During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, SQUARE ENIX® unveiled that the highly anticipated remake of Trials of Mana™ will launch on April 24, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch™ system, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and STEAM® with special pre-order bonuses.

The latest trailer introduces viewers to the game’s cast of characters through the beautiful accompanying orchestral score.

Watch the latest Trials of Mana trailer:


Originally released in Japan as Seiken Densetsu 3 in 1995, and later making its debut in the West with the Collection of Mana™ on Nintendo Switch earlier this year, Trials of Mana is a full, high-definition remake of the third entry in the classic Mana series, seamlessly bringing the beloved story and characters to a new, modern era of fans with real-time combat, beautiful 3D graphics and updated gameplay. The game tells the story of six heroes as they battle against the forces of evil that threaten a world where Mana has been weakened. Players will craft their own experiences by selecting a party of three from these unique characters as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime to protect the very essence of Mana itself.
