Trials of Mana: demo version; more videos and screenshots

Square-Enix have shared the final trailer for Trials of Mana, which comes out in a little over a month worldwide:

And good news for those who would like to try the game before its release: a demo version is releasing on March 18th. It’s only been announced for Japan so far, but it’s more than likely it will be a simultaneous release worldwide. It will allow you to discover the beginning of the game, and includes a boss battle. You will be able to transfer your progress to the full version of the game.

And to celebrate the release of the demo, the Collection of Mana will be on sale on the Nintendo eShop in Japan, from March 18th to March 31st. During that period, it will only cost 2 640 Yen (50%), but you will be able to bring that price even lower if you pre-purchase Trials of Mana (digital pre-purchases go live on March 18th): 1 584 Yen (instead of 5 280 Yen) until April 23rd. It’s more than likely there will be a similar offer in Europe and North America, but nothing confirmed as of writing.

Also, Square-Enix have revealed that Trials of Mana will feature an extra episode, after the ending. Clearing it allows you to unlock the 4th set of classes for each character (with the Light and Dark variants). And that’s not all: players who want to continue playing can choose New Game+ once they’ve cleared the game, allowing them to play while keeping some elements from their previous playthrough (such as items, levels, abilities, and more).

Here’s the latest set of pictures for the game, including artworks of the new classes:

Finally, here’s nearly 30 minutes of footage and over 100 screenshots for the game:

Trials of Mana (Switch) comes out on April 24th worldwide.
