Square Enix is taking a big risk remaking The Secret of Mana. The original SNES game is a beloved classic, with rich 16-bit art that most indie studios would kill for. So, of course, they’re scrapping all of that and bringing it to 3D. As Imran, Kim, and I discuss in our latest episode of New Gameplay Today, those new visuals may or may not be an improvement.
Long story short, we’re not huge fans of the new art. Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it. Check out the video below to see The Secret of Mana in action, and also see some of its new streamlined interface. As far as that goes, we’re fans. Hey, you can’t win ’em all, right?
The Secret of Mana remake is coming to the PlayStation 4, Vita, and PC on February 15.
