Next cheapest is Simply at £27.85, I think. Currently £3 cheaper than the recent Amazon deal.

Originally released in 1993 and widely regarded as one of the greatest RPGs of all time, Secret of Mana invites players on an action-packed adventure taking on the role Randi, along with his two companions, Primm and Popoi, as they battle a treacherous empire to reclaim the magical power of Mana and bring the world back to order. Embark on an action-packed, worldwide adventure in the 3D remastered version of Secret of Mana. Take on the role of Randi, a young boy tasked with reviving the magical power of Mana. In order to defeat the forces of evil, Randi, Primm and Popoi must befriend the eight elementals who hold the power that comprises Mana. The legacy of Mana returns as the brave warriors set forth to bring balance back to the world.

I remember the name from early 90's, remember Lethal Enforcers more for the gameplay, wish they would release that again.

Still some heat got pressed, call me iron man.
Great price, shame its out in like 3 months </3
One of the best rpgs ever, the music is outstanding. Slightly worried about the graphics on this remake
This looks great - I loved the original. But I'm not buying until it comes out on the console it should have come out on (switch).
Especially since they've ported it to the Vita which has very similar ( though a lot weaker, hardware architecture to the Switch. It would take a few weeks at most to throw this on the eShop for switch.

I can only assume Sony have paid for this to be a timed exclusive for Playstation consoles. The one thing I really don't like about Sony's business model; they pay money to make other consoles worse. Instead of just trying to make theirs better.

Rant over - great price OP, heated.
So much hype!!!
SNES emulator mann...

They all do it. Bayonetta & Nintendo. Microsoft with Tomb Raider & Dead Rising. Paying for console exclusives has been going on 30 years.
Were they always called Randi, Primm and Popoi?! Randi!

Just a small correction, but Nintendo didn't pay for Bayonetta, they funded the development and published it as no one else wanted to. If Nintendo didn't step in, there would have been no B2 or possibly even B3.
My boxed Snes copy was only £5.
I read that as Randy, Prim and Proper. Need to get my eyes tested.
I remember playing Mystic Quest on the Gameboy, which I loved, but I don't think I ever played this one. Will definitely check it out.

Its going to have to get a lot cheaper before i jump on. I expect i'll check on it again this time next year. That box art is provisional so hopefully it will be redone a little more sympathetically.

Looking at vids it kinda looks like a blown up 3ds title (not nessercarily a bad thing, some amazing looking games on the 3ds) but i expected a little more polish. Early days though i know.
My fav jrpg in the 90s. About time for a remake. Not bad price. I vote hot

I am very doubtful that Sony has paid for a niche game like this. It is a waste of time and money for them to invest in this. I am also very doubtful it could be ported to the switch in a few weeks.

Sony also invest alot of money in first party.

I remember taking a LONG bus journey to get this after finding a shop that had it on import back in the day. And paying £55 for it, almost 25 years ago

Mine was found in a pile of stuff in a cash converters around 17 years back....unfortunately I spoiled most my snes game boxes by covering them with sticky back plastic to 'preserve' them back then.

Yes, however I always called Popoi, Sprite.
This was my favourite SNES game and remember getting it on import along with a adaptor card, however watching the youtube videos of this remake I think I'd still prefer the original, especially as it doesn't have the voice acting.
