New Trials Of Mana Remake Trailer Focuses On Gameplay

The latest Trials of Mana trailer takes a deep dive on the RPG's gameplay ahead of its release on April 24 for PS4, Switch, and PC.


Square Enix has released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming remake of Trials of Mana, taking a deep dive into what features to expect when the game launches for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 24.

The video (which you can watch below) reveals that there are six playable characters to choose from when assembling your three-person party, much like the original game. Depending on who you pick, the story can play out in many different ways, too.

Now Playing: Trials Of Mana - Official Gameplay Trailer

The trailer also shows off the customizable combat system, chain abilities that can be shared with your team, how to switch classes to gain strength and improve your stats, and how you can learn over 300 different abilities--with some of them being dependent on a day/night cycle.

Trials of Mana is the third entry in the long-running Mana series. It was originally released in 1995 on the Super Famicom in the East--where it was known as Seiken Densetsu 3--and didn't make its way West until the Collection of Mana launched in June 2019. The upcoming remake has been built from the ground up with modern 3D graphics and an art style similar to another Square Enix RPG, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.
