    The controversial 3D remake of a classic Super Nintendo title, Secret of Mana, just got a 10 minute trailer at PAX West, showcasing gameplay footage from the start of the game, with included voice acting. Square Enix notes that this is an early build of the game, which is set to fully release (digital only), for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Steam/PC on February 15, 2018.

    I'm lost already, people hate this? :wtf:

    Whoever uploaded that video did a poor job, not 60fps, not 1080P and it has frame drops. :blink:

    Hmmm... No dancing shop keeper makes me sad.

    It looks neat, and I think this would be a perfect game for the Switch IMO. Oh Well!

    Looks pretty good. I did try out the original briefly at one point but I couldn't really get into it. Action RPGs have never really been my thing. But I've always thought that I should give it a more proper try at one point as it seemed like a great game.
    This remake might be the perfect chance to do that.

    PS: Flammies are fucking awesome.

    Square Enix is following the bad example of Capcom's... not releasing a game/compilation on a brand's console they were born.
    There are a lot of fans waiting for a game on a Nintendo console/handheld. But they preferred to release it on that crappy brand owner's consoles and that crappy Steam...

    One more legal buyer they've lost because of this very bad decision.

    Doesn't look too bad.

    I will need to see more before I pull the trigger.

    FYI - Good to see you back here reporting @Chary :)

    Hopefully the framerate issues are fixed, unstable/inconsistent framerates are an issue.

    I was so annoyed I left half of my reply to the video in Japanese :lol:

    一体なにがおこった?!どうしてフレームレートはそんなに最悪のか!?
    "What the hell happened? Why is the framerate so bad!?"

    This is bad, either they used a crappy video capture device or the game is really bad, and knowing how well Square Enix does remakes...

    Considering Adventures of Mana being on smartphones, I wouldn't be surprised if this gets ported to Android/iOS eventually. Here's hoping for an eventual remake for the 3rd game.

    I hope that what we see isn't anywhere near representative of the final build of the game, shoddy framerate notwithstanding.

    Video quality still could've been a bit cleaner.
