Well, I’ll be. Secret of Mana is back!
The original Secret of Mana is being remastered in polygonal 3D, Square Enix has announced, for a 2018 release on the PS4, PC and — wait for it — VITA! A new Vita game coming to the West! In 2018!
What world is this even?
Apparently it’s a world in which you can play a classic action RPG from our youth, given the hand-painted 3D treatment a la how the company has treated many of its Final Fantasy remakes for the 3DS. Now, why this isn’t coming to the Switch (or 3DS) is beyond us, even though it seems like a perfect fit. At least the OG pixel version is coming to the Super NES Classic for those who can’t wait (or aren’t PlayStation owners) and can manage to find one.
Look for the new old game to hit shelves in February 2018.
