Trials of Mana is making its way to Switch as a fully-revamped 3D remake, which is quite a far cry from the original release on Super Nintendo. Square-Enix is hard at work on making this a top-tier remake, and that goes for all elements, right down to the translation. In an interview with USGamer, producer Masaru Oyamada discussed the fan translation of the original title, and how it motivated the team working on Trials of Mana now.
Well, the localization team took a look at the translation and the first thing they said was, "We're going to show them up." I'm sure that the people that worked on the pirated version worked with the best of what was available to them, but we really wanted to do as good of a job as we possibly could.
