Publisher Square Enix has unveiled their high-definition enhanced port of Legend of Mana, scheduled for publication for Nintendo Switch on June 24. Players will be able to choose between the PlayStation music score by composer Yoko Shimomura or newly integrated arrangement tracks.

Produced by Akitoshi Kawazu and directed by Koichi Ishii, Legend of Mana debuted in Japan in 1999 and received an English-language localization the following year. Shimomura's self-arrangement album "Promise" saw its release in 2015, the title alluded to an informal announcement made at the 2011 Tokyo Game Show of a 20th anniversary commemorative release produced by Shimomura.

"Promise" includes twelve renditions of music from the action RPG, including "Hometown Domina," "To the Sea," "Port City Polpota" and "Song of Mana." The compact disc releases is available for shipping from CDJapan, while excerpts can be previewed on the crossfade trailer, courtesy of the publisher.
