Many Nintendo Switch gamers were upset when Square Enix announced the Secret of Mana remake for PS4, as they didn’t had any plans to bring it to Switch.
Secret of Mana producer Masaru Oyamada told USGamer that they didn’t expect to see so much demand for a Switch version of Secret of Mana, thus they are now considering its feasibility. Here are his full comments on the matter:
To kind of give background in terms of when the project started, it was about two years ago, and the Switch hadn’t been announced. Once we had announced this particular remake title, we were very surprised to see the amount of demand and feedback we received for a potential Switch version.”So, the voices are heard, we’re aware that people are desiring a Switch version, and we will make an effort to see what is feasible in the future, though nothing is confirmed or planned.
Besides Secret of Mana, Square Enix is now considering to localize Seiken Densetsu Collection in the west.
Obviously, our focus is on Secret of Mana since we’re in the last part of its development, so obviously it’s hard to definitely say that yes, we will release it. But we’ve obviously heard a lot of demands and requests for that game to be released in the west, and that’s something we will do our best to hopefully achieve, but nothing at this moment in time.
