I want to know where rabites came from, and see those original overworld sketches. That said, the fact is that Secret of Mana is to me what Chrono Trigger is to most people who were into JRPGs on the SNES, and Collection of Mana has been a truly wonderful trip back through my very fond memories for this series.

When you consider how many titles Konami is packing into its Anniversary Collection packages – and that their retail price is almost half what Square Enix is demanding for the three games included here – it's impossible to not question the value of Collection of Mana.

GREAT - The Mana games are still great, even over 25 years later. The opportunity to finally play Trials of Mana, even with the remake coming out next year, is worth owning this collection. Whether you’re playing solo or with friends, these adventure games are worth your time!

Maybe we're paying too much for a very well made translation, but Collection of Mana contains a couple of masterpieces that every RPG fan should play in 2019. We waited for Trials of Mana for too long, and now we wouldn't want to miss it.

Trials of Mana is amazing and, by itself, makes this compilation essential for all of those who have poured tears and hopes on the photos of the game during that torrid summer of 1995.

Collection of Mana is a great opportunity to get into the spirit of an old school role-playing adventures in its original form. Seiken Densetsu 3, finally localized, is a collection's star. Therefore, it's a must buy for fans.

Collection of Mana is a nostalgia-fueled ride through three classic games. There is no additional bonus with each of the ports, but all three games are handled well and offer some nice quality-of-life features. If you can't wait for Trials of Mana Remake, this is not a bad way to play through arguably one of the best Mana game.

It may seem a little pricey, but, considering that Trials of Mana has never been available outside of Japan before, Collection of Mana is a must-have for Switch owning JRPG fans.

The Collection of Mana does a fine job of providing faithful recreations of 8 and 16-bit classics for a modern portable system, but make no mistake: all three games show their age. For those who had their formative years during the Super Nintendo era and those that simply prefer 2D sprite-based gaming, this package will serve you well. For everyone else, having the first three Seiken Densetsu entries in one package may not be enough incentive given that the flagship title's re-invention is just around the corne.

Available to the Western audience for the first time, Trials of Mana is without a doubt the main attraction of this Collection of Mana, in which we can also find Final Fantasy Adventure and one of the most iconic games of the Super NES era : Secret of Mana.

If you want to play the first 3 Mana games in any place, this collection is for you, even if you only consider to play the fabulous Seiken Densetsu 3, as is the first time is available outside Japan (and translated). But it's far from perfect: only one game is in spanish, there are missing options, and it's very, very expensive...
