Square Enix earned a place in the industry for releasing games with its distinctive Japanese RPG style. One series that captured this concept very well is Mana (Seiken Densetsu). Although the company has expanded and works on a wide variety of projects, it does not forget its roots and has recently shown great interest in the Mana franchise, and has just announced a remastering of the original title that will have a collector’s edition, but not it will be easy to achieve.
In 2018, Square Enix released a remake of Secret of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 2) and in 2020 it did the same with Trials of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 3), in addition to that in 2019 it released a collection of the 3 games of the original series, Collection of Mana, with which for the first time he released a version of Trials of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 3) for America.
Well, the decision to revive the franchise seems to be giving positive results to Square Enix, since in the past Nintendo Direct confirmed the relaunch of the first installment of the series, Legend of Mana, which came to PlayStation, and will return improved with a remastering for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

In the Nintendo Direct we could see the improved visual section that this new version of the game will present; However, something that did not please fans of the series and the physical format is that the game will only be available digitally through the PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop and Steam.
However, the situation will be different for Japan, because there Square Enix will not only launch the game in physical format for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, but will also sell it in a collector’s edition that will also include an art book, the band remastering official soundtrack, a Li’l Cactus plush and all of this will come in a box with a beautiful illustration.
In case you missed it: the remake of Trials of Mana has already sold 1 million copies.
Unfortunately, as we mentioned, this edition is only available in the official Square Enix online store in Japan and does not ship internationally. The one that does ship to Mexico and other parts of the world is the North American store, but this edition of the game does not appear so far, which will be priced at ¥ 14,300 (about $ 136 USD).
