Trials of Mana

Square Enix has released the “Final” trailer for Trials of Mana, as well as announced it will release a demo for the game for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam on March 18.

Players will be able to freely choose their party combination, as well as carry their save data over to the full game when it launches.
