Twenty-five years ago, Square Enix released an RPG that offered a change of pace from the standard range of RPG combat systems. While there were monstrously popular titles such as the Final Fantasy franchise, Might and Magic, Ultima and many others, Trials of Mana created a new combat system that did not maintain the standard mechanics of combat based on menus. Alternatively, the battles took place in real time when you crossed monsters in wilderness areas, challenging players to manage a combat system with three active group members out of a total of six.
Trials Of Mana Releases A New Gameplay Trailer, Showing Off Fantastic Combat And Worlds
It was revolutionary at the time, although the new combat system had not resulted in the death of menu-based combat at the time. Unfortunately, 1995 was a landmark year for RPGs, and Trials of Mana was overshadowed by titles like Earthbound and Chrono Trigger. While Chrono Trigger has already received a remake of all kinds (far from the quality offered by the next Trials of Mana, nor Final Fantasy 7 Remake), Trials of Mana is on the horizon like another remake of the classic version of SNES ; this time it looks fantastic.
As Final Fantasy 7 Remake is undergoing a massive facelift with new locations, characters, and events, Trials of Mana also seems to be receiving similar treatment. A new gameplay trailer has arrived where it shows new worlds, an incredibly fluid combat system and undressed women.
The dubbing will likely have many opting for the original Japanese voiceovers, which have already been confirmed to be included in the base game options. With the voice acting apart, it’s no exaggeration to say that this title shows tons of promise with beautifully lush worlds ripe for exploration. A multitude of biomes and varied cities are visible in the game’s trailer, from difficult desert landscapes to snow-covered ramparts, evergreen jungles and volcanic regions spewing out magma and fire.
