Trials of Mana will receive a remake for the Nintendo Switch, per an announcement from Nintendo made during its E3 conference Tuesday.


Trials of Mana, known previously as Seiken Densetsu 3, is the third in the Secret of Mana series. While the previous two titles in the series were released in the United States, the third never made it to the U.S. after its 1995 release on the Japanese Super Famicom.


In its original form, Seiken Densetsu 3 was a top-down JRPG, but the remake will turn the game into a modern, 3D RPG. Players choose one of six characters to follow at the start of the game, with two other characters as party members. Each character offers its own story line.


Trials of Mana Release Date


Players can try out the original version of the game in the Collection of Mana, released Tuesday on the Nintendo Switch and featuring all three of the titles in the Mana series. The Trials of Mana remake won't be released until early 2020.
