Trials of Mana Remake Changes
Below is a list of changes not found in the original game. So far, the information summarized below are roughly translated. We will update this when the game comes out.
Prologue Experience event
The Prologue Experience gives you a chance to witness the prologue of characters that you did not pick when you load up the main story. Here, you can read more about the lore of those characters and get a grasp of each of their history and their purpose for embarking on a journey. The prologue section can be skipped.
Li’l Cactus Hunt
An optional side quest found in the remake is the Li’l Cactus mini-game. After finding the hidden cactus in the overworld, you’ll score adventure-related effects.
New Game Plus
After completing the story for the first time, you’ll unlock New Game Plus. Many features can be found in New Game Plus. Options range from choosing classes that you have not previously selected, and inviting new characters to become companions to name a few.
Tier 4 Classes
One of remake’s attractive features is the ability to class change past tier 3. The tier 4 classes appears after completing the main story.
The remake version received new features for the battle system. In the remake, players need to get familiar with the controls in order to attack or dodge enemies in combat. There’s also a jump mechanic which enables the player to get a better feel of the remake’s 3D environment.
Advanced Attack pattern
Unlike the original game, the characters can now employ more complex combos through the use of more input combinations. Here is a short summary of the possible actions using the new attack pattern:
- ○ – Attack
- ○ → △ – Blow-out attack
- ○→ ○ → △ – Wide range attack
- △ – Blunt attack
Shortcuts for using abilities
You can assign hotkeys to use abilities this time around. There is a total of 4 assigned shortcuts that can be used which either an item or a spell can occupy. Take note of the item or spell and its corresponding shortcut to use them on the fly.
Boss area gimmicks
Certain gimmicks can be used to make boss encounters smoother. For example, you can interrupt a boss from unleashing a powerful attack when timing the gimmick correctly. Combine different tactics to beat the bosses.
Earn bonus experience
Meet certain conditions while in battle to earn more experience. For instance, if you can manage to defeat enemies without taking any damage, you’ll receive more experience. Other conditions involve beating enemies under a certain amount of time or using special attacks at specific times.
No Agility stat
Since attacks can be dodged using commands, the agility stat no longer appears in the remake version.
Stat distribution changes
Another change from the original game is that you’ll receive bonus stat points after reaching the next level. Stats can also reward you with “training points.” Aim to accumulate these points to boost your stats and unlock new abilities.
Abilities are tied to the stats you assign. Set a goal on how you plan on building your character to unlock certain abilities that can prove useful for later phases.
Apart from new costumes that come with the class changes, when a character equips a new weapon, the weapon’s model will also change.
