Secret of Mana
The memorable adventure of Randi, Primm and Popoi is reborn in the new “Secret of Mana”! This remastered version features a newly arranged musical score, fully voiced characers, additional gameplay content, upgraded control for more modern gameplay, and of course 3D visuals for a whole new way to look at Secret of Mana.
Secret of Mana is one of the SNES role-playing masterpieces crafted by the creative minds at Squaresoft in the early ’90s. But unlike its 16-bit contemporaries Final Fantasy III and Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana is an active-time RPG — its battles take place in real time, more like a Legend of Zelda game, as opposed to the turn-based, menu-driven systems seen in those other Square classics.
Its unique battle system is one of the factors that made it so memorable — one of the reasons it’s still recognized today as one of the best games ever made. And another is that you don’t have to play it alone: three human players can team up (this required the Super Multitap accessory on the SNES).
