Now Playing: Secret of Mana Collection - Nintendo Switch Japanese Trailer

The announcement comes one day after the game's official Japanese Twitter account posted a teaser video of Seiken Densetsu 3 being played on a Nintendo Switch. Unlike the two earlier games, Seiken Densetsu 3 was never released outside of Japan.

All three games will be on one game card and also available through the eShop, and will cost 4,800 yen (approximately US $43 / £34 / AU $56).

There are a few new features, according to Gematsu: quick-save will allow you to save at any time during gameplay, and a music mode will allow you to listen to music from any of the three games from the home screen.

A special screen-change mode will also allow you to change between several screen sizes when playing Final Fantasy Adventure (originally released on Game Boy in 1991 as a spinoff of the Final Fantasy series).

There's no word on whether the series will be getting an English-language release, but thanks to Switch's region-free settings you will be able to access the games in the eShop and play the Secret of Mana series in Japanese from anywhere in the world.
