Update: Confirmed

PlayStation Latin America may have leaked the announcement of a Secret of Mana remake for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

The Latin American division posted the following on their official Facebook page



The caption reads: ”A legendary RPG returns. Secret of Mana comes to PS4 and PS Vita on February 15, 2018. http://play.st/2ivxbhh."

The link in the caption redirects to the PlayStation Blog LATAM, and the URL contains ”el-remake-en-3d," suggesting it is a 3D remake rather than a port. Unfortunately, the post itself either is not live or was live and has been taken down.

Unless the PlayStation Latin America Facebook page was hacked, it seems likely that this is a real announcement that was posted prematurely. But until anything is confirmed, we suggest remaining skeptical.

Thanks, Reddit User Opeth_Agalloch.

How is that a leak? Why everytime I see a thread with the words leak in it the information comes published from official channels.
Leak because it was posted prematurely (assuming this is real).

Maybe but why presume they didn't intend for it. It just seems to happen all the time recently when it comes to anything from movies to tv and games. Thought it was a meme at first or perhaps the way companies enjoy breaking news viral.

How does that translate to a remake? The wording sounds more like a port to be honest. Also Vita refuses to die lol.

edit: in 3d? that's a remake alright.

If it's real, it's obvious Square Enix didn't intend for one place to post the announcement before all other outlets.

Wasn't there Seiken Densetsu 1 Remake that was released on Vita and Smartphones?

I'm expecting this to be around the same level as that. Especially with Vita as one of the platforms.

I dunno, I have a feeling this is gonna be a cheap-looking, budget top-down 3D remake. I mean, I suppose there's little else they can do, but I'm pretty confident this is not gonna amount to much. I'll try to remain cautiously optimistic.

/edit: basically I'm expecting it to look like this:
