During the Nintendo Direct E3 2019 presentation, Square Enix announced that Seiken Densetsu 3 is being remade as Trials of Mana and it’s coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in early 2020.
Seiken Densetsu 3 was the third entry in the Mana franchise and launched in Japan only back in 1995. You can watch the teaser trailer below and read more about the game.
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.

She sealed the horrors inside the eight Mana Stones, bringing the realm back from the brink.
Weakened from rebuilding the world, the Goddess changed herself into a tree and fell into a deep sleep for many years.
However, the forces of evil soon sought to free the Benevodons to gain control of the world.
They started a terrible war to further their plot and destabilize the kingdoms.
Peace was at an end. Mana itself began to disappear from the world and the Mana Tree started to wither…
