The remake will still come with the same characters and story as with the original but because of the new third-person camera for the remake, the co-op option has been removed.
In an interview with Gematsu, producer Shinichi Tatsuke said that the third person camera angle will “enhance the feeling of being immersed in the world”. And they believe that co-op will be taking away from that experience.
Tatsuke added that it would be better for the game if they focused on the single-player aspect only. If an online multiplayer would be added that would mean that they would have to “incorporate additional elements specifically to make it enjoyable for online as well”.
Also, Masaru Oyamada, another producer said that they are planning to add more games to the Mana series but first would “love to hear what everyone thinks after playing trials of Mana and what they are looking forward to from the Mana series”.
Multiple playthroughs are available for the game. It will take about 25 to 30 hours to complete the game and your decisions will impact the ending that you will get. Also, no DLCs are being planned as revealed by Tasuke.
Trials of Mana will be releasing on April 24, 2020, available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
