A new Trials of Mana update is out today. It brings new challenges and experiences to players.
The update is in celebration of the recent 25th anniversary of the release of the original Trials of Mana, known as Seiken Densetsu 3 in Japan. Additionally, Square Enix announced that is holding sales on digital versions of titles in the series.
Patch 1.1.0 for Trials of Mana is scheduled for release today. It includes a number of game content updates and additions, such as:
- “No Future” Difficulty – This new difficulty level will put even the most experienced players to the test. This difficulty setting will allow players to challenge even stronger enemies and bosses with restrictions on certain abilities and item usage, as well as time limits on boss battles. Players can also obtain stronger versions of equipment and execute new chain abilities.
- “Expert” Difficulty and Level Reset in New Game Plus – Players will have the option to select “Expert” as a difficulty setting when starting a New Game Plus playthrough. Additionally, the option to revert characters to level 1 when starting a New Game Plus playthrough has been added.
- Costume Adjustments – Unlocked costumes can be accessed after resetting a character’s class or when starting a New Game Plus playthrough.
- Addition of goddess statues to the map, bug fixes, and more.
Players who complete the story available after completing the “No Future” difficulty mode are rewarded with the “Rabite Slippers” equipment. This allows players to traverse fields and dungeons without encountering enemies.
In addition, Square Enix is celebrating the game’s 25th anniversary with discounted prices. Trials of Mana is 30 percent off right now on PC and Nintendo Switch. The discounts run from October 14 through November 2. Meanwhile, PlayStation 4 will get the discounts later this month.
