Square Enix considering Secret of Mana for Switch and discusses localization of Seiken Densetsu Collection

Square Enix is considering the possibility of bringing the upcoming Secret of Mana remake to the Nintendo Switch, according to a USgamer interview with producer Masaru Oyamada.

“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,” Oyamada said. “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.”

He also added, “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 also explained that Square Enix has also heard the demands for a western localization of Seiken Densetsu Collection, which is a collection of the first three Seiken Densetsu games for the Switch.

“Obviously, our focus is on Secret of Mana since we’re in the last part of its development, so obviously it’s hard to definitely say that yes, we will release it,” Oyamada had said. “But we’ve obviously heard a lot of demands and requests for that game to be released in the west, and that’s something we will do our best to hopefully achieve, but nothing at this moment in time.”

Secret of Mana is scheduled to release on February 15, 2018 for Steam, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.
