Yup! It was part of Nintendo's.

And that's awesome - Trials of Mana will be a complete 3D remake of SD3 (like the SOM remake).

Can't wait!

Already bought the collection!  I wasn't to hyped about the remake...didn't care much for the Secret of Mana remake so I'll probably pass on the new one.

I loved the graphics and music of Seiken Densetsu 3 but HATED the gameplay. Looks like the combat system has been totally overhauled for the remake, so I might pick it up. Any word whether there will be online multiplayer?

Thanks for posting the ToM gameplay video, Acacia Sgt! I didn't actually watch the Nintendo Direct or associated videos in too much detail due to being hella busy. That video and all the gameplay they showed was great.

I can't wait! The Mana series, although it's had its up and downs, is one of my favorite overall series. SoM is just being Chrono Trigger for me in all time favorite RPGs.

It did the first time. You just...need that 1 to 4 plug port for the SNES that almost no one bought.

You may be thinking of SD2, 3 did not have 3-player support...

All I know is SoM 2 (the originally unreleased SoM) for SNES was perfect.  It took repetition a little to the extreme, but was a fun story with a pretty good customizable-level up mechanic.  Most games nowadays take it to the extreme (cough cough* lookin at YOU Valkyrie Profiles cough cough*) which tends to drag on the fun.  Seiken for the Gameboy was absolutely perfection also.  A little long, but only until I figured out some walls were breakable. 

Also, since I play SoM for the SNES brand style, I'm not really caring for 3D by any stretch, but I'll probably definitely buy a copy to support them.  As soooon as I get Switch.  And after OctoPath game.  And my second playthrough of 4Heroes of Light on my DS.  When Lucca finally builds me a time machine like she's been promising.  @_@ haha >)

Oh also, yes, addendum:  Trials of Mana is what I was talking about.
