Trials of Mana

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Updated systems and stunning graphics make this elusive JRPG is more accessible than ever before, but outdated game design and a few frustrating elements ruin the enjoyment.

Game Info

Trials of Mana is a full high definition remake of the third entry in the Mana series, previously exclusively released in Japan in 1995 as Seiken Densetsu 3. Trials of Mana tells the story of six heroes as they battle against the monsters of destruction that threaten a world where Mana has been weakened. Players can customize their own party of three, selected from six unique characters, to experience different stories.

“Trials of Mana is a great remake of a 16-bit classic, but its 16-bit roots are often hard to ignore.”

“Trials of Mana adds modern hooks to an obscure classic JRPG, but fluid combat is held back by some frustrating choices.”
