Collection of Mana Available Today for Switch, Includes First Three Mana Games

The Trials of Mana Remake is scheduled for a "early" 2020 release for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.

Twenty-four years after its release, Seiken Densetsu 3 is coming to the US for the first time, as part of a new Switch package called the Collection of Mana.

Check out the remake's trailer above. 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.

What makes this remake especially interesting is that Seiken Densetsu 3 has never officially released in North Ameria, instead staying exclusive to Japan since its release in 1995. There have been plenty of Arcade Archives that have released since the Switch's launch, and a number of NES games, but no Game Boy. The three game compilation now includes a convenient quick save feature, and allows players to adventure with friends through a local multiplayer mode in both Secret of Mana (up to 3 players) and Trials of Mana (up to 2 players). Previously released in Japan as Seiken Densetsu 3, the entire game has been built from the ground up with modern visuals.
