When it comes to their remasters, Square Enix has not given them much physical love on the Switch. Final Fantasy VII / VIII was an exception, however SaGA Frontier and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles’ is currently only digital. Unless you plan to import this new collector’s edition, The legend of Mana seems to be going the same way.
Legend of Mana was announced last week in the Nintendo Direct presentation, for the first time in 1999 on PS1, and marked the fourth main entry after Try Mana. Remastered as part of Mana’s 30th anniversary, Square Enix has also confirmed a collector̵
Including the game, the art book, Li’l Catcus’ plush and an official soundtrack, it goes for ¥ 14,300. Currently, it is also the only way to get Legend of Mana physically. Within this listing, Square Enix states that “this game package is not intended to be sold separately”. This edition is also not confirmed for Western release. Boo.
Launching on June 24, we hope Square Enix will make this more accessible. It’s a shame they don’t, but JRPG fans have a lot to look forward to.
