One of the biggest games they’ll be showing is Secret of Mana. Check out our recent preview for more on the remastered role-playing game:

 

Fans were immediately excited when Square Enix announced that they were working on a Secret of Mana remake for PlayStation 4 and Vita. After all, the 1993 release is considered an all-time great in the role-playing genre, and the series has been largely absent in North America since Legend of Mana came out on the original PlayStation. There’s a lot of high expectations for the remake, and I got to play the first chunk of the game leading up to the very first boss fight.

If you’ve played the SNES original you’ll know that only equates to about 15-minutes of gameplay. That’s obviously not a ton of time, but it was still enough for me to get a good grasp on what to expect from the 2018 remake. The first thing that stood out during the introductory cutscene were the graphics, and it wasn’t in a good way. Secret of Mana still retains the colorful look of its predecessor, but unfortunately there’s a real lack of detail present for a game by Square Enix, who typically is a technical powerhouse.

Enjoy the Square Enix TGS 2017 live stream, and let us know what you think of the stream!
