    I'm surprised they're still considering Vita and not Switch. Definitely my choice of platform also, although it deters me from wanting to replay the game on the SNES Classic in its original form with this one on the horizon.

    Then again, Switch was getting emulated versions of the three games as a bundle in Japan, no?

    The most common thought on the webz is that Sony paid for some form of announcement exclusivity and that a Switch version is inevitable come launch.

    Nothing to back it up, but there is a little bit of logic there as Sony would then get the lions share of pre-orders as a form of direct competition to the SNES Classic.

    It worked fine so long as everyone stuck together, otherwise, the screen would stop scrolling to make sure all three characters were on the screen at once, and anyone could pause it when they wanted to use magic and items. This meant you could actually trap someone on a lower floor, on certain areas, which let you troll your cousins, or what not, so they couldn't have fun and beat up on monsters. >_>

    I'd much rather see a new Secret of Mana then updating the original, no matter how good it was; been 2006ish since they really tried to put out a new game in the series, but nothing has ever come close to this one.

    I feel like Seiken 3 did a lot of things better than 2 and only a few things worse. But certainly those two games are far and away the high points of the series.

    This is great news, but yeah, I would prefer a Switch version. Also, digital only I'm guessing from that announcement, I still like having physical copies of console games!

    I'm with everyone on wanting a switch version so I can play console or on the go. Nintendo has gotten all of these remakes so I'm assuming it's just a question as to when.
    I also
    Hope there is an option for JP audio because from that trailer the MC sounds awful

    It looks like Japan is getting a physical Collector's Edition. No word on whether it's coming to the west though.

    Why must they add voice acting to everything? Just...stop. It doesn't help anything.

    Sometimes it works well, a la Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition.

    But yeah, adding it to an SNES game is stupid.

    This was a nice little surprise!

    The Japanese trailer for comparison.


    Slightly less nasal-y, plus he says the names of the other two, who were never officially named outside Japan.

    I hope they add in all the content that was cut out of the original due to the falling out between Nintendo and Sony back in the day. The final product had some pretty deep cuts, especially the NA version, which had a number of story elements removed due to space limitations.

    Oh wow he's voiced by a dude and sounds way older than I imagined. Thought he'd be voiced by a girl!

    Also, did a quick comparison but the iconic cover appears to be a higher quality than mine, so I'm replacing it:

    Ohhhh Christ on a bike!

    Thanks for reminding me!

    I could see episodes involving Popoi and Primm before meeting up with them (or maybe even the Scorpion gang, or the Imperial generals, or Dyluck and his crew raiding the witch's castle). I haven't played the mobile ports so I don't know whether or not they fleshed out any story elements.

    I played through the iPhone port. It was a rough go; the d-pad is hard to keep control of. It's a direct port of the SNES version, far as I could remember.

    Yeh iphone/ios port is nothing special. Direct port.

    Not sure if they dumped the arrange album on there though:



    Either way, I hope they completely redo/mix up the soundtrack to have real instruments for the game. It did say new score, so fingers crossed.
