Square Enix have announced a demo for Trials of Mana in Japan, as well as releasing the final Japanese trailer.
The official Japanese Twitter account for the game announced the demo would be available on March 18th. Players can freely pick their party, with save data carrying through to the full game.
There has been no announcement of the demo being available in the west at this time. While certain platforms will allow you to play the Japanese demo without issue, we do not imagine the save data from the Japanese demo would transfer to the English full game. We will keep you informed as we learn more.
Square Enix also released their “final trailer” for the game. You can find the Japanese final trailer below.
You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below:
“Trials of Mana” is the 3D remake of the hit Japanese classic RPG released in 1995 as Seiken Densetsu 3.
Experience the beloved adventure fully modernized with quality graphics, an upgraded battle system, character voices, a remastered sound track, extra conversation interludes, and more!
The overlapping story of interwoven destinies changes depending on who you choose as your main character and companions!
This daring tale of overcoming the tests of fate has been given new life! Will these young adventurers be able to use the power of mana to save the world from the brink of destruction?
When the world was shrouded in darkness, the Goddess of Mana drew forth the Sword of Mana to smite the eight Benevodons, monsters of destruction. She sealed the horrors inside the eight Mana Stones, bringing the realm back from the brink. Weakened from rebuilding the world, the Goddess changed herself into a tree and fell into a deep sleep for many years. However, the forces of evil soon sought to free the Benevodons to gain control of the world. They started a terrible war to further their plot and destabilize the kingdoms. Peace was at an end. Mana itself began to disappear from the world and the Mana Tree started to wither…”
Revamped 3D Graphics
Trials of Mana is a full 3D remake of the third game in the Mana series, originally released in Japan as Seiken Densetsu 3. The entire game has been fully rebuilt from the ground up with modern 3D graphics.
