Square didn't lose the source code, it was intentionally destroyed when the project wrapped because that was standard practice for them, long into the PS2 era. Possibly the most bizarre and short sighted policy they ever had.

They have the 2D for Switch, right? I watched some of it not long ago. x3 But I think I'll play the newest iteration (never played it before) to see if they upgraded the writing.

I've preordered the physical Collection of Mana, I intend to play through them all in time for Trials of Mana remake. Gonna make the most of it while I can.

From what I've heard it could be running on the DQXI engine. Does have some visual similarities.
I've heard the same thing.

Nice link, Dekky, that's an interesting read.
And yeah, Tekka, that's a pretty strange policy.

Wow, I haven't been on this forum since 2011, but I decided to stop back in because this remake is a really pleasant surprise! I heard the SoM remake was a dud and expected them to shelf the series again after that, I did not expect them to double down and go twice as hard on another remake! When I was last on this site it seemed like Square couldn't care less about the series, hahahaha. I haven't thought about this series much since 2011 or so when I was really getting into all the Squaresoft classics but that time period holds a lot of nostalgia for me, and so seeing this game remade really warmed my heart. Hope you all have plenty more to talk about for years to come!

I agree with everything you said. Exciting times. I really hope this remake is good and puts the series back on the map.
