The upcoming remake of Secret of Mana had a playable demo at this years PAX West, allowing us to get a better look at the game in action.
Thankfully for those who weren’t at the convention, footage was captured via a Twitch livestream, and you can view nearly 10 minutes of gameplay below.
Announced just last week, the remake will feature the same original storyline regarding Randi and the Mana Sword while also implanting new, modernized features such as:
VOICED CHARACTERS: That’s right, you heard Randi in the trailer and you’ll finally get to hear Randi, Primm, Popoi and many other characters talk and express themselves throughout their adventure!To add to that, the game will have language options which will allow players to experience the game using Japanese voices and/or subtitles.
A NEWLY ARRANGED SOUNDTRACK: We’re excited for you to hear a beautiful, newly arranged soundtrack that pays tribute to the original.
LOCAL MULTIPLAYER: Yes! Sit down with two of your friends (up to three players) to experience the adventure together.
Square Enix is currently running promotions on pre-ordering Secret of Mana, allowing players who pre-order the game to receive PSN avatars of Randi, Prime, and Popoi. In case you missed it, we also have a list of other Square Enix titles we’d love to see get the Secret of Mana treatment.
