The Secret Of Mana Nintendo Switch Ports Are Being Handled By M2

It has been revealed that it is none other than M2 who are busily working away on the Seiken Densetsu Collection. The acclaimed team is responsible for the excellent Sega 3D Classics series so the Secret of Mana collection development should be in more than competent hands. Here’s what company president Naoki Horii had to say on Twitter:

“Oh, also, it looks like I got the go-ahead, so I’d like to announce that I’m taking charge of Seiken Densetsu on Switch. As I cozily play Zelda in all kinds of scenes, I get a feeling that it’s going to be an enjoyable hardware.”




  1. I’m hoping they bring this collection to the west. Maybe the localisation on the third release was already done before they shelved it, a la the first Mother game

    1. Doubt it will arrive here, Seiken Densetsu 3 was never officially translated, and translation costs are too high to justify the little western market (those games, despite some fans here, are far more popular in Japan than the US).

      Unless Squeenix wants to put lots of money in the machine (which I doubt), than ain’ gonna happen anytime soon, probably ever. Sorry to disappoint you.

      1. A few years ago I would agree with you. More and more though I find TINY niche japanese games with complicated hurdles to western releases actually do make it here. I would’ve put good money on the Senran Kagura series or J-Stars Victory Vs. never touching the U.S., but both did.

        Translation costs are high, but significantly lower than making a whole new game. If Squeenix wants to test the waters on the Switch, this wouldn’t be a bad budget option.

  2. Secret of Mana is one of my favorites games. I was hoping it would get on the Wii U VC, but that never happened. I would love to be able to play it again (I got it on the Wii VC, but when I moved all my data to the Wii U, I couldn’t play it because I didn’t have a compatible controller).
