In addition to releasing a teaser trailer (which you can watch above), Square Enix also stated that those who pre-order from the PlayStation Store will receive special costumes for the game’s characters characters — Randi and Popoi will get Moogle Suits and Tiger Suits, while Primm will get a Moogle Suit and a Tiger Two-Piece. There will be three special PlayStation Network avatars too. Steam buyers who pre-purchase or buy the Day 1 edition within the first week get the costumes as well, along with a downloadable wallpaper.

Secret of Mana originally released in 1993, and is widely regarded as the best of the Mana series. You take control of three heroes — Randi, Primm, and Popoi — in order to fight a power-hungry empire bent on stealing the world’s supply of mana for itself. The original game also featured multiplayer, though there’s no word yet on whether that mode will make it to the remake.
