“To kind of give background in terms of when the project started, it was about two years ago, and the Switch hadn’t been announced,” says Masaru Oyamada, one of the producers of the series for over 10 years
“Once we had announced this particular remake title, we were very surprised to see the amount of demand and feedback we received for a potential Switch version.” Oyamada states, referring to both the western community’s feedback, and the eastern community’s reaction to the Seiken Densetsu Collection, released in Japan upon the Switch’s launch.
“So, the voices are heard, we’re aware that people are desiring a Switch version, and we will make an effort to see what is feasible in the future, though nothing is confirmed or planned.” Oyamada continued, pointing to the potential for a Switch release of The Secret of Mana Remake.
The Secret of Mana was originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System by Square Enix in 1993. The Secret of Mana is an action role-playing game, and serves as a sequel to Final Fantasy Adventure.
