Could Secret of Mana Remake End Up on the Switch?

Secret of Mana

Masaru Oyamada, the producer of the Secret of Mana remake for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC, spoke about the possibility of the game eventually making its way to the Nintendo Switch in a recent interview with IGN.

While Square Enix doesn't currently have plans to port the full 3D Secret of Mana remake to the hybrid console, the demand for a Switch version has the studio re-evaluating that stance.

"When we originally started to develop this title, the Switch wasn't announced at that time, and so we started developing for the PlayStation platforms," Oyamada explained. "With that said, after announcing this, there has been quite a bit of demand for the Switch version. So, we are taking in that feedback, and if there is large demand for it we'd like to see what we can potentially do. But no plans as of yet."

Which means we could very well see a later port of the game to the Switch, much like we have with the recent additions of DoomSkyrim, and even I am Setsuna on the console. It would also fit in very well with the current Switch library.

Oyamada also indicated that he would be interested in making 3D versions of the Secret of Mana sequels, as long as the "interest is there" from fans.

Secret of Mana will be released for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC on February 15, and a physical version of the remake will be available for PS4. Oyamada said the studio currently has "no plans for additional DLC," but are "definitely open to feedback" from fans regarding possible DLC content.
