Square Enix at Nintendo Treehouse: Live stream showcased over 15 minutes of gameplay from the remake of the Seiken Densetsu 3, now known as Trials of Mana. In-game footage reveals the giant crab boss the Full Metal Hugger, as well as Duran the swordsman, Lise the young Valkyrie princess, and Carlie the Priest of Light.
If you are like me and have played the original version and got to witness the E3 2019 reveal of Trials of Mana or Seiken Densetsu 3 Remake, I’m sure it brought a smile to your face.
The good news is that old stuff like female outfits, locations, and other iconic features are still intact. However, new mechanics like jumping is in the remake, but the option of the two-player co-op is now gone.
Without further ado, here is the latest never before seen live demonstration and look at the new version of Seiken Densetsu 3 Remake courtesy of Nintendo:
Moreover, the reason devs are making a remake of this game is that it was never released overseas, so whether you’ve played this game before or if this new version will be your first with the series, Seiken Densetsu 3 Remake will still be a fresh experience to both parties.
Speaking of a fresh experience, elements like combos and jump attacks are in the remake. However, the devs claim that this remake is the most action-heavy game in the series, but it’s still an action RPG through and through.
Also, almost all of the event scenes are fully voiced where 30-plus characters all have voices. Additionally, the devs are 100% certain that the voice cast “won’t damage/hamper the characters’ images.”
Personally, I’m actually excited to see the 1995 game come to the 3D realm without any current year political stuff. Although the game isn’t in the clear just yet given “game journos” and the PS4 are a form of a test trial, I do hope gamers can enjoy the remake unscathed when it launches for PC via Steam, PS4, and Switch in early 2020.
