    Collection of Mana is a compilation with three masterpieces that should be remembered for all time. It is a must for all nostalgic fans.

    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.

    Trials of Mana is one of the best games from the 90s, which can now finally be played legally in English. The localization of that game alone justifies the high price tag of what is basically a collection of old ROMs. It’s a really nice nostalgia trip that comes with another classic as a gift.

    Trials of Mana is amazing and, by itself, makes this compilation essential for all of those who have poured tears and hopes on the photos of the game during that torrid summer of 1995.

    Collection of Mana includes three must-play games for any JRPG fan. They have beautiful art design, incredible soundtracks, and Trials of Mana may arguably be the best game the SNES ever had. Unfortunately it’s a bit light on additional content beyond the games themselves.

    It may seem a little pricey, but, considering that Trials of Mana has never been available outside of Japan before, Collection of Mana is a must-have for Switch owning JRPG fans.

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

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.

    Incluye el primer juego de Gameboy en Inglés, Secret of Mana de Snes también en Inglés y por fin de forma oficial Trials of Mana, que gracias a este recopilatorio ve la luz fuera de japón por primera vez, además traducido al Castellano.

    Solo por el Trials of Mana ya merece la pena este recopilatorio, sin embargo, Square-Enix deberia de haber invertido un poquito más de dinero en traducir tanto el juego de gameboy como el de Super Nintendo.

    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.

    Loved the secret of mana game when I was a kid. But this is such a sloppy game. Glitches abound leaving the game undesirable and unenjoyable.
