It’s been 24 years since Seiken Densetsu 3, the critically acclaimed sequel to Secret of Mana, graced Super Famicom systems. Since then, fan cries for a western localization have fallen on deaf ears… until now! That’s right, my fellow Mana maniacs: Seiken Densetsu 3 is coming to Nintendo Switch as part of a bundle called the Collection of Mana!

The newly localized version is being dubbed Trials of Mana, and will come packaged with both the Game Boy’s Final Fantasy Adventure (the first Seiken Densetsu game) and Super Nintendo’s Secret of Mana (its sequel). It’s essentially the same collection Japan got two years ago, only now playable in English, French, German and Spanish. Best of all, the game’s available for download in the Nintendo eShop right now!

 

 
Additionally, and perhaps more exciting depending on your feelings about Secret of Mana’s remaster last year, is the news Trials of Mana will be getting a similar re-haul — slated for release on Switch in early 2020. Check out the debut trailer below.

 

 
Collection of Mana is available right now in the Nintendo eShop for $39.99. Collectors of physical media can pick up the game from their retailer of choice for the exact same price, though keep in mind it’s a pre-order not slated for release until August 27th.
