Trials of Mana

Square Enix showcased 18 minutes of its newly announced Seiken Densetsu 3 remake Trials of Mana gameplay during the Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 2019 Day 2 live stream.

The character selection screen from the footage includes descriptions for the game’s six playable characters, which we have transcribed below. (Two character descriptions, however, were not revealed in full, which are marked as incomplete.)

Duran

  • Homeland: Valsena
  • Stats
    • Attack: B
    • Defense: B
    • Magic Attack: E
    • Magic Defense: D
    • Luck: C

Duran is a proud young soldier from Valsena, Kingdom of the Plains. Though he comes across as hot-headed and ready for a fight, the whole kingdom acknowledges his skill with a blade. Duran has nothing but love for his kingdom and respect for the Hero King, a good friend of his departed father, Loki the Golden Knight.

  • Homeland: Altena
  • Stats
    • Attack: D
    • Defense: D
    • Magic Attack: A
    • Magic Defense: C
    • Luck: B

Angela is the only daughter of the True Queen of Altena, the snow-covered kingdom of magicians. Because Angela’s mother hardly spent any time with her as a child, the princess was prone to act out to get attention, wearing gaudy clothes and playing pranks on people in the castle. Despite this, her love for her mother runs deep. Angela never got the hang of casting magic spells, a problem that plagues her to this day.

  • Homeland: Ferolia

    • Magic Defense: D
    • Luck: C

Kevin is heir to the throne of Ferolia. His father is the king of the beastmen, but his missing mother was a human woman.

    • Defense: D
    • Magic Attack: B
    • Magic Defense: B
    • Luck: A

Charlotte is the granddaughter of Wendel’s Priest of Light. She looks much younger than she is thanks to the elfin blood in her veins. Perhaps because of this, she has always been coddled by the people who raised her in the temple. Charlote’s bright and outgoing personality can be both an asset and a hindrance. Though curious, she’s superstitious and a bit of a scaredy-cat.

Hawkeye

  • Homeland: Nevarl
  • Stats
    • Attack: B
    • Defense: C

    • Luck: A

Hawkeye hails from the desert fortress of Nevarl, home to a guild of noble thieves. He was raised as the orphaned ward of Flamekhan, the leader, together with Flamekhan’s own children, Eagle and Jessica. Hawkeye comes across as a laid-back and charming young man, making it hard to tell when he’s being serious. But at his core, Hawkeye is a… (incomplete)

Riesz is the young princess of the mountainous kingdom of Laurent and captain of the renowned Amazon guard. She has a will of iron and down-to-earth manner. Though some might call her stubborn, Riesz is always there to lend a hand to those who need it. She lost her mother as a child and since then has tried to help raise her little brother Elliot. Her topmost priorities are her father, brother, and kingdom.
