announced video game Trials of Mana gets more information revealing that it
will have a lot of action compared to the previous ones.
Trials of Mana new
notable tidbits revealed
The upcoming video
game was discussed recently by the developers in an interview with Famitsu at
Check out the
important details below:
The project began moving around
two years ago.
Unlike Secret of Mana, the
reason we are making a significantly bolder remake with this game is because
this title was never released overseas, so we hope to introduce it as a
completely new title.
Trials of Mana is one of the
conclusions we arrived at through trial and error while listening to the
feedback from [the remake of] Secret of Mana. Early in development, we created
a prototype that was even closer to the original game, but as a remake after 25
years we were not satisfied with that.
The original concept of the
Mana series was something along the lines of, “seamlessly play the Final
Fantasy series’ ATB battle system.” We called what we ended up with “motion
battle,” we weren’t saying it was an action RPG at that time.
In Secret of Mana, you were
able to fight while changing weapons, but since your weapons were fixed in
Trials of Mana, we heard from users that was no good, so with the remake we
wanted to fix that.
Elements such as combos and
jump attacks have been implemented in the remake. It’s being made so you can
really enjoy the action parts.
While this is probably the most
action-heavy game in the series, it is an action RPG through and through, so
you enjoy the game even if you’re not good at it so long as you level up.
Since action performance
differs based on the character, your experience with the game will change based
on who you’re playing as.
There is no multiplayer.
Event scenes are pretty much
fully voiced. 30-plus characters all have proper voices.
The voice cast will be
announced at a later date, but we can say with 100 percent certainty that the
voice cast won’t damage the characters’ images.
There is a lot that we still
can’t say, so fans and non-fans alike please look forward to hearing more.
The game will launch on PlayStation 4.
It is planned to release in early 2020.
