The Secret of Mana Remake to Receive Limited Physical Release For PS4
It is easy to imagine the hordes of fans screaming with glee when Square Enix announced the upcoming Secret of Mana remake. The 16-bit Super Nintendo RPG classic wooed a great deal of gamers back in the day with its story and gameplay, and the chance to play through the title again with updated graphics and music is a pull not so easily ignored. When the Secret of Mana remake was originally announced it was to the tune of a digital-only distribution for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC in North America. Thankfully Square Enix seems to have changed its mind, as it has confirmed that a limited physical release will be available for the PlayStation 4. There are, however, a few stipulations.
The upcoming physical release for the Secret of Mana remake will only be made available through one retailer – GameStop. Those looking to pick up the physical version of the game can do so through GameStop in the U.S., EB Games in Canada, and at “all participating retailers” in Latin America, though no list was given suggesting which retailers these may be. Pre-ordering the remake is absolutely recommended given how limited of a release this will be, and GameStop is offering a few incentives for those looking to do so. The incentives are the same as the ones that can be obtained by pre-ordering the digital versions of the remake, and are as follows:
- Moogle Suit for Randi, Primm and Popol
- Tiger Two-Piece for Primm
- Tiger Suit for Randi and Popoi
The Secret of Mana remake is releasing on February 15th, 2018 for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and Steam. The price is $39.99 for Steam and both digital and physical versions for the PlayStation 4, dropping down to $29.99 for the PS Vita version.
