Square Enix announced on Friday that it is developing a remake of the Secret of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 2) game for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC via Steam. The remake will feature full 3D graphics, voice acting, and rearranged music. The PS4 and PC versions will feature three-player multiplayer, and the PS Vita version will support ad-hoc multiplayer. All versions are slated for release in Japan, North America, and Europe on February 15, 2018. Square Enix is streaming an English and Japanese video previewing the graphics, music, and new English and Japanese voice tracks.
Those who pre-order the game in all three regions will receive DLC "moogle suit" costumes for Randi, Prim, and Popoi, a "tiger two-piece" costume for Primm, and a "tiger suit" costume for Randi and Popoi.
Square Enix released the original game on the Super Famicom (SNES) in 1993 as a sequel to Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden (Final Fantasy Adventure), and the game is the first in the series to not bear the Final Fantasy franchise name in the title. Square Enix recently re-released the game in Japan on the Nintendo Switch alongside the first and third games on June 1.
