    Collection of Mana, heck even just Trials of Mana in the West, is a dream come true for me. If you decide to pick this up, you're getting three wonderful games that you can play anywhere. Some extra features, like a museum with the series' artwork, or a history lesson on the entire franchise, wouldn't have gone amiss, but we got something we never thought we'd get. If $40 for three excellent games isn't too much to ask, then do yourself a favour and pick this up if you're an RPG fan.

    What you've got here are two of the finest examples of the genre, accompanied by a third likeable entry which is also well worth a look. When you consider the many hours of top-notch entertainment on offer, the price is very nearly a steal.

    The fact is that Secret of Mana is to me what Chrono Trigger is to most people who were into JRPGs on the SNES, and Collection of Mana has been a truly wonderful trip back through my very fond memories for this series.

    This is a fantastic franchise, and now you can discover or rediscover it with this collection. Also, Spanish players can enjoy Trials of Mana for the first time in the West –in Spanish!

    Trials of Mana is certainly a title worth your time, but newcomers to the series may want to hold off until the release of the modern remake next year. The Collection of Mana does a fine job of providing faithful recreations of 8 and 16-bit classics for a modern portable system, but make no mistake: all three games show their age. For those who had their formative years during the Super Nintendo era and those that simply prefer 2D sprite-based gaming, this package will serve you well. For everyone else, having the first three Seiken Densetsu entries in one package may not be enough incentive given that the flagship title’s re-invention is just around the corner.

    Collection of Mana is a deep dive in the ocean of nostalgia with the added bonus of Trials of Mana, one of the best game in the genre finally localized now that a remake is on the way.

    A neat collection of JRPG classics for Switch, a little light on extra content though.

Elle a été annoncé en OccidentCollection of Mana est une compilation regroupant les 3 premiers jeux de la saga Seiken Densetsu de Squaresoft. Elle a été annoncé en Occident lors du Nintendo Direct spécial E3 2019 et rendu disponible le même jour sur l’Eshop de la Switch.

    Compilation de rêve regroupant un jeu GameBoy et deux jeux Super Nintendo devenus cultes et légendaires dans l’histoire des action RPG et des jeux vidéo en général, il est intéressant de se replonger dedans pour se rendre compte à quel point la proposition est intemporel.

    A solid collection, but whether it's worth the money might vary by person. $40 is pretty pricey for a collection of three 20+ year old gamesA solid collection, but whether it's worth the money might vary by person. $40 is pretty pricey for a collection of three 20+ year old games with no new additions, however these are fantastic games and I haven't encountered any issues with the emulation in my time with the game. Local co-op functionality in the two SNES titles is a nice bonus as well.
    It should be noted that this is also the first time Trials of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 3) has been made officially available outside of Japan, which I feel somewhat justifies the heftier price tag.
