Trials of Mana New Update, Price Discounts, and More Announced

Game company Square Enix has announced that full-3D remake Trials of Mana will be getting a new update today.

The new update will be bringing new challenges and experiences to players. This is to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of the original game known as Seiken Densetsu 3 in Japan. Aside from that, there is also a sale on digital versions of the titles in the series.

Patch 1.1.0 for Trials of Mana is scheduled for release today and will include a number of game content updates and additions, such as:

  • “No Future” Difficulty – This new difficulty level will put even the most experienced players to the test. This difficulty setting will allow players to challenge even stronger enemies and bosses with restrictions on certain abilities and item usage, as well as time limits on boss battles. Players can also obtain stronger versions of equipment and execute new chain abilities.
  • “Expert” Difficulty and Level Reset in New Game Plus – Players will have the option to select “Expert” as a difficulty setting when starting a New Game Plus playthrough. Additionally, the option to revert characters to level 1 when starting a New Game Plus playthrough has been added.
  • Costume Adjustments – Unlocked costumes can be accessed after resetting a character’s class or when starting a New Game Plus playthrough.
  • Addition of goddess statues to the map, bug fixes, and more.

Players who complete the story available after completing the “No Future” difficulty mode will be rewarded with the “Rabite Slippers” equipment, which will allow players to traverse fields and dungeons without encountering enemies.

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the original Trials of Mana, select digital download titles in the Mana series will be available at a discounted price on Nintendo Switch™ and Steam® from October 14 through November 2, and on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system later this month.
