During its Investor Q&A with Yosuke Matsuda, Square Enix revealed that Trials of Mana has exceeded its expectations. In case you weren’t aware of, Trials of Mana is a full, high-definition remake of the third entry in the classic Mana series.
As Square Enix stated:
“Sales of “TRIALS OF MANA” are so strong that they have significantly surpassed our initial expectations. In regards to
catalog titles, we are seeing growth in digital sales from our library, especially of titles featuring our core IP, and this is
despite not engaging in any special promotions. In addition, unrelated to HD games, revenue generated from one-off
sales of smartphone games also grew in 1Q.”
As we’ve already reported, Trials of Mana uses the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. Square Enix is also offering a demo that PC gamers can download via Steam. Furthermore, the game has Very Positive reviews on Steam.
In other news, Square Enix has very high expectations for Marvel’s Avengers. The publisher will focus on the GaaS aspect to deliver compelling add-on content post launch. Moreover, the team aims to build excitement around the game through live service content and updates.
Lastly, and even though we haven’t seen a lot of mods for Trials of Mana, there is already a nude mod for it.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
