This is so cool...

$50 seems pretty steep for 3 games from 20 years ago...
Maybe discounted I'll bite, but not like I care about the Mana series that much to begin with.


I need this localized. I'm sure my gf and I will have fun playing Secret of Mana.

a GB game and 2 SNES games? for 45$ US?

Your phone can play these games, your tablet, your laptop/desktop ect.

Most people probably already have played these.

These are 22-26 years old games, its crazy their not sold for like 1-2$ each on virtual console.

That said Seiken Densetsu 2,3 are still decent games today.

But you can get them off a rom site for free, and play them on any device.

That 45$ price tag nintendo put on these is kinda nuts.

So, Sony PlayStation Store pricing, nobody bats an eyelash:

PSOne:  $5.99
PS2:  $9.99-$14.99 (GTA Trilogy is $34.99, which is $11.66 per game)

But, Nintendo Virtual Console games (which this isn't, it's a physical + digital release from SquareEnix) MUST start at $1, or everyone loses their minds.  Why, because Nintendo has been around longer and has a library that predates the PlayStation brand?  I'm pretty sure if there was a PlayStation console in the SNES/Genesis era, Sony wouldn't be selling games from it in their online store for .99 cents a piece.  And, to reiterate, Nintendo didn't dictate to SquareEnix that Square has to price their collection at $45.  Yet, I haven't seen 1 comment saying Square is asking a bit much (again, despite the fact that they are also commiting a physical release to this collection), only that NINTENDO is crazy for choosing this pricepoint (which again, they didn't.  Square did).

I hope this doesn't stay in Japan...

Same, these are excellent games, and I would love to play them again. 


Never played these games originally. Price is a bit steep, but I'll probably bite. Be cool to get all these games on one cartridge.

I have a question, just how can the multiplayer work? Are details on the multiplayer out yet?



Ahhh, I want this so bad, hope it gets localized D:

About 30mins? into the game (cant remember exactly), you get the secound character (in secret of mana) the girl, and a 2nd player with a controller can push start/select and take over that character.

I think its even possible to play as 3 people, with each in controll of one of them (I never tested this out).

My neighbor had this for his snes, and we played it co-op from more or less start to finish.

I remember getting angry if he would play while I wasnt around and advance the story ect :p

Secret of mana is a great game.... I just think the priceing is going to hurt it's sales.


I believe its the same in Seiken Sensetsu 3, though I havnt ever tried it co-op.

The multi-player aspects their talking about are probably like the snes's (local co-op).

Give your friend a joy-con (left or right) and you keep one, and let him/her take controll of one of the 3 characters (your team has).
