Trials of Mana will release on April 24, 2020. This upcoming version is a remake of the original Super Nintendo classic, but this time Trials of Mana makes use of 3D graphics and introduces a new combat system, among others.

So what is Trails of Mana all about? Let's look into what you can expect from the game.

As already mentioned, the new version is a complete reimagining of the 1995 RPG classic Trials of Mana. The original game was introduced to the US last June as part of the Collection of Mana. In Japan, Trials of Mana was called Seiken Densetsu 3. The original Trials of Mana was famous mainly due to the levels of replayability, which remains present in the remake.

So how does the game work? Trials of Mana offers six playable characters, each having their own unique playstyle and abilities. Players choose a starting character along with two others. Depending on which characters are chosen, players get a different story with its own unique scenarios.

While the remake remains faithful to the original game in both story and spirit, the new Trials of Mana also offers something players haven't seen before. For example it has beautiful and colorful 3D graphics along with full voice acting and cinematic story scenes. This combination makes the Mana Tree feel more alive than ever.

There is also a new battle system that lets players use fast and fluid attacks, evasion, positioning, and careful use of special abilities.

The new Trials of Mana is set to be released on April 4 next year with digital versions available for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Physical versions of the game are available for both PS4 and Switch.

For those who order the game before May 21, 2020, they get a chance to receive the Rabite Adornment.
