Square Enix celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Mana series with two big mobile game announcements as well as a new anime series.
Trials of Mana
First, they revealed the release date for the mobile version of the Trials of Mana 3D remake.
The game was initially released in Japan as Seiken Densetsu 3 back in 1995, but was recently remade as a 3D high definition game titled Trials of Mana and released in April 2020.
Square Enix detailed in a press release that this mobile version will feature “revamped touch controls, customizable graphics settings and cloud save capabilities.”
Players will also “receive two useful pieces of starting gear to help jumpstart their quest: the Rabite Adornment, which increases the amount of experience gained in battle until level 17, and the Silktail Adornment, which increases the amount of lucre gained in battle until level 17.”
The game will hit mobile platforms through the App Store and Google Play on July 15, 2021. It will run you $23.99.
Echoes of Mana
Along with the Trials of Mana mobile announcement, Square Enix also announced a brand new free-to-play action RPG mobile game titled Echoes of Mana.
