Square Enix has announced a full 3D remake of Secret of Mana which will be coming to Steam, PS4, and PS Vita on February 15, 2018.
According to the announcement, Secret of Mana “retains its long-held charm while incorporating improvements such as upgraded gameplay for modern platforms and a newly arranged musical score.” This is far from the first 3D remake Square Enix has engaged in, and we’re pretty positive it’ll be just as fancy as the rest.
Secret of Mana was originally released for Super Nintendo in 1993 and follows main characters Randi, Primm and Popoi.
As a preorder bonus for this new version, Square Enix is offering Moogle and Tiger costumes for all three heroes as DLC. While the tiger costumes are not my favorite, for a reason you can probably immediately guess, I am fond of the moogle costumes. Basically, slap a moogle on anything and I’m likely to buy/play it. Put a young female character in a tiger print bikini for no goddamn reason, and I’m liable to be annoyed about it. Seriously, it’s 2017. Can we give up on the juvenile “costume” choices for female characters already? It stopped being tolerable at the turn of the last century, now its just pathetic.
