Square Enix speak about possibilities for Secret of Mana on Switch


The usual story

Since the Secret of Mana remake was first announced last year, many fans have been asking whether the new version of the 1993 SNES classic would see a Switch port, given the game's retro stylings and Nintendo origin.

Secret of Mana Producer Masaru Oyamada addressed the fan-request in a recent interview with US Gamer. Oyamada gave the often-heard story that when development began on the title, no-one even knew Nintendo Switch was a thing.

"To kind of give background in terms of when the project started... the Switch hadn’t been announced," said Oyamada. "Once we had announced this title, we were very surprised to see the amount of demand and feedback we received for a potential Switch version."

Oyamada would go on to state that Square Enix are definitely looking into the possibilities of a Switch release for the title down the line. In the same interview, Oyamada also touched upon fan callings for the localisation of Seiken Densetsu Collection, once again stating that the company was listening to the demand and looking into the possibilities.

Secret of Mana launches February 15 on PC, PS4 and PS Vita.
