Trials of Mana
To celebrate the release of Trials of Mana, Square-Enix have shared an official interview with Masaru Oyamada (Mana series Producer) and Shinichi Tatsuke (Producer). Click here to check it out!
Here’s an excerpt:
How challenging was it to move a 2D game into 3D? Is there anything that you particularly struggled with when you remade the game with the modernized graphics and systems?
Tatsuke-san: Recreating something that was depicted in 2D pixels with a fixed camera inevitably results in contradictions and things that look unnatural. It takes a lot of effort to make sure the three-dimensionality and distances look believable in 3D – we had to re-create the fields and adjust the level designs to make sure everything felt natural. Additionally, we struggled with how to depict some story events and cutscenes, and things like the timings within them. These were parts which players would need to use their imaginations to fill in the blanks back in the day. For the battle system, we put in a lot of effort because we needed to redesign it pretty much from scratch in order to heighten the action qualities in a more modern way.
