One of Square's most beloved titles of the 32-bit era is Legend of Mana and fans and new players can look forward to revisiting the 4th title in the Mana universe soon. During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, it was revealed that a port of Legend of Mana will be releasing on Nintendo Switch on June 24, 2021. The release will also arrive on PC via Steam on June 25.

It has been more than two decades since Legend of Mana has seen a release on North American platforms and series fans have reason to be excited by today's news. The game's soundtrack will get a remix for this release and players will be able to swap between the new mix and the original mix while playing. There will also be an option to disable enemy encounters.

Legend of Mana will be the third game in the franchise to get a fancy re-release in the last five years following Secret of Mana in 2018 and Trials of Mana last year.

      I'm surprised there isn't more talk about this one. I never played it so I'm at least pretty interested in it.

        It's quite a bit different from the formula in the other titles, but I loved it to bits. The art is gorgeous and the soundtrack easily on of my favorites from that time.

        The only downside is that really doing everything means consulting a guide to know what positions to drop artifacts in (which creates the world map).

        I'm excited this is coming to PC and PS4 as well, but might go with Switch just to play in bed.

        I played it a bunch in the summer of 2001. It was okay, but I remember putting it down and never thinking about it again.

        The music was cool.

        I liked Legend of Mana a whole lot. I won't get this because I'm not really interested in replaying, but it's a beautiful game with great music.

          Yeah I really liked it and it has been long enough that I'll probably pick it up because I've forgotten quite a bit. This version also looks quite pretty.
