Square Enix has revealed that the Trials of Mana remake that is due to release next month will have several new elements, including a ‘New Episode’ where players will get to play around with new Tier 4 classes, as well as a New Game+ mode, plus the return of Li’l Cactus. [Thanks, Game’s Talk!]
The ‘New Episode’ is unlocked after the credits for Trials of Mana‘s original story. After finding out of the existence of Tier 4 classes, the protagonists head to various areas in order to strengthen themselves even further. Tier 4 classes also fall into Light and Dark categories, and apart from their looks, they can also use fixed weapons and special attacks.
Here’s a look at each protagonists’ Tier 4 classes below:
Witch Queen (Light)
Beast King (Light)
High Priestess (Light)
Chaos Maker (Dark)
If you have clear save data for the New Episode, you’ll become able to play Trials of Mana‘s New Game+. You’ll carry over money, items, Link Abilities, the number of Li’l Cactus you have found*, and other elements (though not all) to your new run of the game.
*Li’l Cactus returns in the remake, and there’s 50 of it hidden all around the world. You’ll get rewards for finding a certain number of it.
Trials of Mana will be released for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC worldwide on April 24, 2020. The game gets a demo on March 18, 2020.
