Players can progress through the story in different ways based on the choices they make, offering a more personal and unique gameplay experience.
Legend of Mana will come with remastered visuals, a rearranged soundtrack, and the “Ring Ring Land'' mini-game which will be available to the West for the first time. During their travels, they’ll encounter a colorful cast of characters, square off against fearsome monsters in real-time combat and explore the vast world of Fa’Diel, all while experiencing Legend of Mana’s timeless story.
Legend of Mana will be available digitally for $29.99 on the Nintendo Switch™ system, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PC (STEAM®) on June 24. Players who purchase Legend of Mana before July 23 will receive an early purchase reward, including ten avatars and a custom Legend of Mana theme on the PlayStation®4 system or Legend of Mana Wallpaper on PC (STEAM®).

About the Mana Series
The Mana series, known as Seiken Densetsu in Japan, is a long-running action-RPG series spanning multiple entries for nearly three decades. The series is known for its enchanting characters, story and music, as well as pioneering an action-oriented approach to traditional JRPG combat. With the release of Collection of Mana for Nintendo Switch™ in 2019, new and existing players can now immerse themselves in the enchanting world of the Mana series with the first three classic titles—FINAL FANTASY® ADVENTURE, Secret of Mana® and Trials of Mana™—in their original form. In 2020, a full high-definition 3D remake of Trials of Mana was also released for modern platforms, selling over one million copies to date. Currently, an updated version of Legend of Mana™ is set to release on June 24, 2021, bringing remastered visuals, a rearranged soundtrack, and the “Ring Ring Land'' mini-game to the West for the first time.
About the SaGa Series
SaGa is a series of revolutionary role-playing games, created by legendary game developer Akitoshi Kawazu (FINAL FANTASY, FINAL FANTASY II, SaGa Frontier). Since THE FINAL FANTASY LEGEND was released in 1990 for the Game Boy, the series has expanded with several additional entries across numerous platforms. Other SaGa series regulars include illustrator Tomomi Kobayashi, who has given the series its own unique style, and composer Kenji Ito (Mana series). Although the SaGa series shares its roots with FINAL FANTASY, the SaGa series has always incorporated revolutionary and challenging gameplay mechanics, such as player choice, branching storylines and implementing characters with wildly different playstyles, setting it apart from other JRPG series. Romancing SaGa 3 launched for the first time outside of Japan on November 11, 2019, exactly 24 years since the game’s initial Japanese release. SaGa SCARLET GRACE: AMBITIONS, an enhanced version of SaGa SCARLET GRACE, also launched for the first time outside of Japan on December 3, 2019.
