New Episode

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:

New Game+

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.
