SE's official Mana series Twitter account recently posted a 10-second clip of Seiken Densetsu 3 running on Switch: https://twitter.com/Seiken_PR/status/843658507719127040

Unclear whether this would be a Virtual Console release or some other port - the borders featuring art from the game would certainly be a new feature if the former.

There is no indication of plans for a localization currently.

Holy shit, please localize... I would buy it for $50.

Would be amazing if this was the first "free game" for the online plan. Online play would be nice.

Not getting my hopes up for an English release. Nope, not getting me this time. Not at all.

But seriously, please?

Nope. It had never previously been rereleased on any platform, not even Wii VC.

Doubt this means anything for localization. It's just one of the few games that didn't come out on VC even in Japan, so they're using it to leverage a new VC platform... in Japan.

Been waiting for ages, fruitlessly, for this to hit the Wii U VC, good to know it seems to be coming to Switch at least.
Chrono Trigger as well, please.

I loved Secret of Mana, played it so many times, never did get around to playing SD3. I would definitely get an English version.

An effort into localization would probably be too much cost for justify a simple Virtual Console release

I'd pay 20 for a VC official localized version and it would be worth every penny.

Good thing Switch is region free!
This looks like a VC title.

In any case, it's a decent but very pretty game. I didn't like this game as much as Secret of Mana.

I doubt they'll address certain stats being useless like, agility, I think it was. Such a bummer. I started investing in that expecting results and then I learned it does nothing!

If it's VC it ain't being localized. If it's a port, there might be a chance.

Doesn't look like VC, unless they're adding borders to Switch VC. I hope it comes out in English.

In regards to the references to Virtual Console in this thread, maybe I just missed it, but I don't see any indication in the eshop that such a thing exists anymore. I think Nintendo may just want to treat games as games this time around, whether they're emulated or not.

Exactly, I will relive the days of Superfamicom where I grabbed a translated bootleg strategy guide and played Japanese RPG not knowing a single Japanese word!

VC means no localization, sadly.
I wonder if they changed their plans concerning 3D remakes of both this game and Secret of Mana? Maybe Adventures of Mana didn't sell well enough.

I hope we get this game officially localized (with bugs fixed) one way or another...

That's how Seiken Densetsu 3 is normally. Whoever you aren't controlling is controlled by the AI. However, two player co-op is possible.

Seiken Densetsu 2 (known as Secret of Mana in the US) did support three players simultaneously with a multi-tap.
