    I'm just glad the original is finally in the west instead of being stuck in the "Square Enix refuses to release this game outside of Japan" list. Plus the remake looks interesting, might give it a try.

    Personally I think the original is actually quite overrated. It's an OK game, but it gets very old & very predictable very quickly.

    Glad to see the remake. Hopefully they will improve upon the original.

    I think 2 (Secret of Mana) is probably more fun because of all the different weapons and the great music that keeps it really catchy all the way through. But I still hold this one in high regard.

    Luckily for those who were worried (or not), the original Super Famicom release of SD3 has also been retranslated. And it has already been leaked and is perfectly playable on emulators.

    The day/night cycle was pretty cool in this game, esp. if you took the wolfman.

    this looks exactly the same exact game but now fully 3D. Vissually better then secret of mana. So if you don't care about visuals you should just play the snes ones.

    Combat seems to play out differently in the remake. Theres jumping, combos and input specific special attacks.

    I agree. I actually played through SD3 when I was way younger and thought the first SoM/SD2 was more interesting. Some of the character designs are just bad and all of them are basically generic stereotypes. Passing on this with the full understanding that I am not the target demo.

    Eh

    That sounds more like it kinda devalues party composition and upgrade system.

    I don't think it will devalue upgrade system just with the capacity to switch weapons.

    Anyway, looking at the video a lot of differences stood out. Much smoother gameplay, jumps are a thing 'tells' of bosses are a thing, you can 'reserve' the bars for the specials, there is a no 'agility' (which was a dead stat)...

    Yeah, looks good.

    I don't think being able to pick from multiple weapons would devalue compositions all that much. The thing that really affected party compositions were the spells unlocked from the class changes. Also, while the devs did state that they would be doing something to address characters being locked to one type of weapon all game the actual character selection screen doesn't actually state that they can use anything other than their default weapons - my guess is that the character will have variants on their base weapons with slightly different movesets rather than being able to wield a different weapon class altogether such as Kevin using slashing attacks when equipping claws as opposed to regular punches when using knuckles and gloves.
