YES! YES!


Adventure of Edit: On second thought. I don't have anybody to play this with anymore.... T_T

At least it means "SD3 Remake and worldwide release when?".


Secret of Edit: Also, I hope that screenshot of English Text doesn't mean that they're staying strictly to the old Woosley Localization, especially if VAing gets involved.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

PC love, hell yes. Not a right now/day 1 purchase, but I will definitely be picking it up, eventually.

Considering I never got around to the original, I think I should pay attention to this.

Dope! I only made it to the desert area, fuck RPG desert areas, when I played this originally. I told myself I'd attempt this game again someday, so this seems like a great to jump back in!

I don't think anything can replace the psychotic overwhelming intensity of SNES Secret of Mana...

Like everything about it was just so intense.. I can barely even think about it now without strange emotions.

Consequently when I saw this I just thought well... there's probably no way I'd play this or anything because playing the original was most of the experience/emotion and got all the way to basically the end, not generally the type to play remasters if I played the original a lot.

It really does.  This chibi style needs to die more than almost anything else in gaming.

I guess what I'm thinking is the 90s was a period of extreme creativity and fluidity and video games were no exception to that rule,

It was a tremendous masterpiece in the JRPG genre but it was just so freaking insanely dramatic and intense at all times and that's the problem because

1) There's no way that can be captured again in any format
2) Even if it were possible, I wouldn't want to revisit that kind of extreme turbulence of emotions.

Fuck outta here, the design is perfect! I can't imagine Randi looking realistic, this is the absolute perfect design for a remake.

Seriously, and ps4 players looking to team up when this drops I'm all over it.

I won't want anyone to look "realistic".  I just don't want them to look ugly.  And this style is ugly.

Admittedly, it's not as bad as actual DS games.

It looks worse than the Ys games for PSP.  Not as bad as DS FFIII but still wholly unpalatable.

Or DS FFIV.  Or Bravely Default.  Ugliest character designs ever.

Glad they seem to be keeping the gameplay 2-D.

I'm guessing it's probably running Unity either way i'm picking this up. I still own the Secret of Mana SNES game back when it came out. Also I hope Kikuta comes back to do the rearranged Soundtrack. I don't mind the chibi art style it suits the game well.
