Mana Producer On Bringing Over Seiken Densetsu 3 As An Enhanced Port Or A 3D Remake

Mana Producer On Bringing Over Seiken Densetsu 3 As An Enhanced Port Or A 3D Remake

Siliconera recently spoke with Secret of Mana producer Masaru Oyamada who talked about remaking the classic action RPG. At the end of our interview, we were able to sneak in a little question about Seiken Densetsu 3, the Japan-only sequel to the 1993 title Seiken Densetsu 2, also known as Secret of Mana outside of Japan.

Siliconera: While Secret of Mana is a classic, I think many Mana fans are eagerly awaiting an English version of Seiken Densetsu 3. It’s a great game with different story routes and a cool character upgrade system. If you had a chance to work on this would you prefer to do a remake like Secret of Mana or release the original version like Romancing SaGa 2?

Masaru Oyamada, Producer: No matter which I choose it will be quite difficult, as the title is very large in terms of volume. I understand the comments about wanting to play it as-is in the original pixel format, but I also feel that if we were to resolve the complaints and frustrations from the original, it might be a smoother transition into the future if we remade the game like we did this time. If I had the bandwidth, I would love to go in both directions. But in any case, I will do my best to meet the expectations of those who are waiting.

Seiken Densetsu 3 released in Japan in September 1995 for Super Famicom. The game saw a recent port in Japan as part of Seiken Densetsu Collection in June 2017 for Nintendo Switch. Check out our interview with Masaru Oyamada to learn more about the work that went into Secret of Mana’s recently released remake.
