After seeing this new, actual gameplay footage, I came to the conclusion that the Mana series isn't for me. It's just too cutesy. I have played a Mana game before (Dawn of Mana) and thought the same. Maybe the artstyle is what specifically separates it from Square-Enix's other JRPGs like Star Ocean, Final Fantasy, and Dragon Quest.

I was genuinely interested in it before as you can see in this topic: https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/916373-pc/75819604
CFW Trick and Kotoko Utsugi's father are my idols.

Star Ocean, especially the PSP games have that cutesy art-style. I'm just mad that this version of Seiken Densetsu 2 looks like a damn mobile game and I fear if Chrono Trigger gets a new fresh coat of paint, it'll look something like this. Legend of Mana is still the best looking game in the series, in my opinion.

Looks damn near like the original, so I'm all thrilled.

just the guys playing have no idea how to play the game.

Sadly, it looks like my suspicions are confirmed: It's a cynical cheap ass remake, just like all the other SNES classic remakes Squeenix has released in recent years.

Secret of Mana is probably one of the few Squaresoft classics that actually NEEDS an update, since it was released basically half-finished and rushed to market due to its unique development history. The fact it's as beloved as it is despite all of its objective deficits is a testament to the sheer power of the game's aesthetics and tone.

From the gameplay segment, it looks like Squeenix didn't bother fixing the extremely clunky smack-a-thon gameplay one bit, and that alone is just such an incredible waste of potential. Moreover, the animations actually look WORSE than the original sprites. There's a lot lost in the transition from 2D to 3D that needs to be made up for. (and it can be done; just look at the Zelda series for a how-to)

Only thing I took away is that the music sounds great, but I've heard gobs of amazing fan-remixes of the Seiken Densetsu soundtrack for years and years.

Thanks for linking this. Now I know better than to get my hopes up.
If you don't like what a gaming company is trying to force upon you and the market, don't buy that company's games.
Cruel DRM can only flourish if you let it.

Looks like a DS game in high-res.

Day 1 play for me. In spite of art style. Excuse to replay. If they remaster the music (which it sounds like they did) even better, that boss music on the SNES sounded like dog s***. They chose the worst midi instruments possible.

...Except the fact that those of us who are actually fans enjoy the "clunky smack-a-thon gameplay".

Exactly, it's a stamina meter, lol.

Could be worse- it could be a remake of FF7 similar to Kingdom Hearts 3 that was announced some time ago and still hasn't been released.


It takes some time to make things properly. Hopefully they're using the time to make it properly, and not spending it getting jerked off endlessly. Given their position, it isn't an unrealistic occurrence...
