Secret of Mana

Good news: Secret of Mana is releasing on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Steam February 15th, 2018. Bad news: physical quantities for the PlayStation 4 version will be exclusive to GameStop in the United States and at EB Games in Canada. Physical copies of the PlayStation 4 version will be available at participating retailers in Latin America. Furthermore, the physical copies will be in limited supply for both Americas. The PlayStation Vita version is digital only.

On the plus side, if you pre-order the game, you receive three free DLC costumes. One is a Moogle suit for all three party members, a “Tiger Two-Piece” for Primm, and a Tiger suit for Randi and Popoi.

This situation is reminiscent of the original Xenoblade Chronicles, which was also a GameStop exclusive when it released in North America. The decision led to very high inflation of the game. However, the key difference is that Xenoblade Chronicles originally released with only a physical copy of the game, but the Secret of Mana remake is also available digitally. Here’s to hoping a similar situation doesn’t arise.

    I bet GameStop will take advantage like last time with Xenoblade Chronicles. I’ve already secured my copy at GameStop. GameStop will always take advantage. Like they did with the NES classic, and they will do it again, and again, and again, and again. They will milk it dry til they will go outa business.
