TGS 2017: Secret of Mana remake shows off its local multiplayer in new footage
During a special stage presentation during Tokyo Game Show 2017, Square Enix showed off brand new footage of the upcoming Secret of Mana 3D remake.
In it, we get a good look at how the developers stuck to a lot of those important details so many fans have of the original, like how party members halt in place when a spell is being cast on them.
Square Enix also announced the Japanese voice cast for the game:
Randi: Kenshou Ono
Primm: Nozomi Yamamoto
Popoi: Emiri Kat
Lusa Luka: Rie Kugiyama
Jema: Eizou Tsuda
Dyluck: Takuya Satou
Fanha: Mie Sonozaki
Geshtar: Yuuki Ishikari
Sheex: Hiromichi Tezuka
Vandole: Kenichi Ono
Thanatos: Jouji Nakata
Although it may divide some who prefer the voiceless characters, it's a neat and arguably sensible decision.
You can check out the early parts of the game and the local cooperative multiplayer in the captured footage below. A note the original stream was running a little slow, so blame it on that and not the game itself.
The Secret of Mana remake will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC worldwide on February 15.
Those who pre-order the game off Amazon Japan will get an instruction manual that matches the original as a bonus. There's been no word whether that will be offered for western fans considering the game will be released as a digital-only title..
