Legend of Mana will come with remastered visuals, a rearranged soundtrack, and the “Ring Ring Land“ mini-game which will be available to the West for the first time.
Part of the ongoing SaGa Project from Square Enix that has so far included Western releases of Romancing SaGa 3, SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions and Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe, SaGa Frontier Remastered will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam on April 15th.
Players will experience this role-playing adventure as one of eight heroes via the Free-Form Scenario System. Each character has their own storyline and goals, exploring the sci-fi fantasy universe known as “The Regions” in different ways while discovering unique worlds, technology, and magic. The remaster will also build upon the original title’s multiple storylines by introducing previously cut content, including Fuse’s main scenario and several new events for fan-favorite character Asellus.
