First Character Spotlight Falls on Trials of Mana’s Duran and Angela
Square Enix has released the first in a series of character spotlight trailers for the upcoming Trials of Mana, this one featuring the hot-headed soldier Duran and Angela, the rebellious princess of Altena. The trailer further details the two characters’ backstories, as they meet up in pursuit of the mysterious Crimson Wizard. The game features six characters for players to make up their party of three from, with other cast members to receive their own spotlight trailers in the future.
Trials of Mana is the HD remake of the 1995 Super Nintendo RPG Seiken Densetsu 3, the third game within the Mana series, which was only released for the first time outside Japan through a Nintendo Switch port earlier this year. The game will be released for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on April 24, 2020, with pre-orders available now. Pre-orders placed via the PlayStation Store will receive an exclusive avatar set based on the game’s six heroes, while those who purchase either the digital or physical version by May 21, 2020, will also receive the Rabite Adornment DLC item that grants bonus combat XP up to level 10. Those who purchase the game on Steam by May 21, 2020, will receive an exclusive wallpaper set and the Rabite Adornment.
