The remake of Trials of Mana has been released, and apparently has some changes made such as adding auto-targeting that make it easier to play on a phone. Controller support, however, has been removed. The game takes up quite some space on a phone, so make sure you’ve got room! The price for either download is $23.99
Between now and August 10th you can get Secret of Mana for iOS for about 50% the usual price, so go grab it if you haven’t done so already.
Not only that, but a number of updates have been made to the game, such as added MFi controller support, an improved virtual stick for those without controllers, new high resolution UI elements, a fix for the long-standing bug with the background music, and support for retina and 4-inch displays.
To top things off, for those with Android devices, we’ll see a version of the Mobile Secret of Mana hit Android OS this Autumn (only took, what, 4 years?).
Thanks to manaman for the heads up on some of these items.
From today until March 31st you can pick up Secret of Mana for you iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad or whatever for only $3.99 USD, that’s 5 dollars off!
If you haven’t picked it up yet your waiting just paid off! You can buy it here at the iTunes store!
Ok, this isn’t really huge news or anything, but the characters from Secret of Mana have apparently been added into the game Voice Fantasy where you apparently get people to talk on your phone and you unlock characters who fight using all the voices that summoned them or something strange. Maybe someone else knows something about this?
Anyway, here are some screens. At least some Mana characters still have jobs these days. Thanks to Shuu for the news!
Thanks to Ailise again for the info! If it’s not in the appstore now, it should be by the end of the night! You can find it on the iTunes store here for $8.99 USD. The SoM soundtrack can also be found on iTunes and is 25% off until January 5th!
And instead of doing a music update I’m gonna post all the Secret of Mana commercials again because they’re lots of fun!
Big weird monster commercials
Japanese Flammie TV Commercial
German Cartoon Commercial
According to the Square-Enix facebook page, Secret of Mana for iPhone is finished now and is coming out within the month! Thanks to Ailise for the heads up on this information!
Now someone buy me an iPhone for Christmas!
Here is the producer of the game, Masaru Oyamada, celebrating it being finished. Could he be hinting at 5 days until it’s released?
As you can see it’s got the updated SoM Mobile graphics and they look really nice. The controls seem pretty good too, nice touch controls on the ring menu though I kinda miss the items spinning. They do spin when you switch menus at least. Does it seem a bit laggy to anyone else though? It’s pretty cool looking until they end up hitting a cutscene and messing everything up! Apparently it’s supposed to be coming out in Japan around Christmas time. If this ends up coming out in the US soon I’m gonna have to get an iPhone just for this!
