Square Enix unveiled a colorful new trailer for the next mainline installment to the Mana series, Visions of Mana, and announced that the game is releasing Aug. 29, 2024, for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The new trailer for the highly anticipated action RPG reveals new playable characters and gameplay features that players will encounter on their exciting journey. Pre-orders for Visions of Mana are now available across all platforms.

Visions of Mana is a brand-new story and mainline entry to the Mana series and follows the journey of Val, a newly appointed soul guard who is tasked with accompanying his childhood friend Hinna, a chosen alm, to the Tree of Mana. The new trailer introduces new characters Palamena and Julei, who Val and Hinna befriend on their journey through the vast world to reach the Tree of Mana. In Visions of Mana, players will be able to build their own three-person dream team while in battle, switching between the five playable characters, Val, Careena, Morley, Palamena, and Julei, with supporting companions Ramcoh, Aesh and Hinna assisting from the side.

The new trailer provides a closer look at some of the latest gameplay features, including the Elemental Vessels, and the mystical artifacts that house the power of the elements within them. Players can use the Elemental Vessels to change classes and gain new abilities during battles. With each character possessing their own specific class for each Elemental Vessel, players can customize their team lineup to enjoy a flexible, fast-paced fighting style. Visions of Mana also sees the return of the series staple in-battle Ring Menu, allowing players to pause combat and plan out their next move. Elemental triggers can also be found throughout the vibrant world and used to unlock new places to explore and find hidden items on the map.

Players can even sail the sea or soar above the clouds with their beloved travel companions Vuscav and Flammie. By summoning these trusty companions, players will easily be able to traverse across the open waters and the world map.
