$50 is a pretty steep for a remake of an SNES game. Doubt they'd have made it that different.

$29.99 would have been more appropriate!

Square Enix just desperately throwing out a number hoping people high on nostalgia bite. I guarantee you this game is $5-10 on steam and humble bundle by mid to late 2018. I'd rather keep playing the original on the SNES mini than pay $50 for this

The remake looks rough but I pre-ordered it for now.


Original vs Remake: Looks like they updated the translation but the pixel art looks better than the new low quality 3D models and environments in some ways.


Compare that to Final Fantasy 9 Remastered on PS4 compared to the PS1 original.
The PS4 version of FF9 is a port of the Steam version which is a straight conversion of the Mobile remaster on iOS.

I like Secret of Mana but I'm not sure enough for a physical release, especially since I don't know the quality of the remake.

I'm sure it will be playable and mostly fine as long as they don't mess with the gameplay much but the "upgraded" visuals look like something you'd see in a cheaply made ios/android game. $50 for a 20 year old game remade with mobile graphics is insane

Agreed. I've always preferred sprites anyway and they age way better.

It's on the SNES mini and is only a bit more... And you get to avoid the awful voice acting

woah there's voice acting? That might be cool or it might be absolutely terrible considering the game wasn't written with voice acting in mind

It's awful in the trailer... Just awful. Like, Sega CD bad.

First 11 minutes of the remake with voice acting:



Secret of Mana is the worst RPG included in the SNES classic mini. Earthbound, Super Mario RPG, and Final Fantasy VI are way better than it
in every aspect IMO.

lol I feel like SNES RPG dialog was better left to imagination. Hopefully it can be disabled if it's that bad
That has me wondering about the music. The music in this game is iconic to me and the cheap sounding MIDI instruments are what make it good
