Trials of Mana is Launching This April, New Trailer, Japanese Cast and Artwork (Updated)
Seiken Densetsu 3's remake Trials of Mana is launching this April on PS4, Switch, and PC.
Following an early leak from the PlayStation store, Nintendo and Square Enix revealed the release date for Trials of Mana on September 4’s Nintendo Direct.
Trials of Mana launches on PC via Steam, Switch, and PS4 on April 24, 2020. The date was revealed with a new trailer. I’ve included below the English trailer, the Nintendo Japanese trailer so you can listen to all the awesome seiyuu, and the Square Enix Japanese trailer. The later will be shown at Tokyo Game Show 2019 and is slightly different. It also includes a look at the limited edition only available on the Square Enix Store.
The new trailer confirms class changes are back in this Seiken Densetsu 3 remake. Once you reach level 18, like in the original game, you can switch between two classes, either a Light Class or a Dark Class. Later on (level 38 in the original game), you can again change class to two others, depending on your initial choice. This makes a total of 6 different classes for each character.
The trailer also shows more of Seiken Densetsu 3‘s iconic villains like Belladonna/Isabella, or the Crimson Wizard, who is voiced by the awesome Yuichi Nakamura. We also see multiple battles against the “Benevodons”, like they’re called in the brand new official translation.
This is honestly one of the games I’m looking forward to the most in 2020. While Hiroki Kikuta isn’t directly handling the rearranged OST, it’s really great from what we heard so far, and the original OST is included too. We should publish a new preview on Trials of Mana soon too so stay tuned. We already previewed the game at E3 2019.
