The Secret of Mana remake that’s launching for PlayStation 4 and PC in a few short weeks could eventually come to Nintendo Switch, but there needs to be demand for it, according to producer Masaru Oyamada.
Oyamada recently stated that when Square Enix “originally started to develop [the Secret of Mana remake], the Switch wasn’t announced at that time,” which is why the development team opted for PlayStation 4.
However, due to the amount of demand for a Switch version, the developers “are taking in that feedback, and if there is large demand for it [they’d] like to see what [they] can potentially do.”
That being said, Oyamada clarified that there are “no plans as of yet” for the Secret of Mana remake on Nintendo Switch.
In addition the Secret of Mana remake, Square Enix released the Seiken Densetsu Collection on Nintendo Switch in Japan last year, and the recent surge of Mana series titles could mean that we’ll be getting a completely new Mana game sometime in the future, Oyamada said.
“The reason why we’re remaking all of these titles right now is to remind people who have played the game in the past of the experience, but also to give an opportunity for the younger generation to try the series out as well,” the producer said. “And so, the reason why I’m working on this remake project is in light of potentially making new titles in the series in the future.”
Secret of Mana HD is launching for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC on February 15th.
