Slated for a June 1 release in Japan, it will feature Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3. You know, the first three Seiken Densetsu games.

According to Famitsu, new to the Switch release is a quick save function, allowing players to save during play. It is also possible to pick different screen sizes.

The Seiken Densetsu Collection will also have a music mode, allowing players to enjoy the soundtracks from the Switch home screen.

No word yet about an international release, but if it does get one, it will be the first localised version of Seiken Densetsu 3, a game that has been Japan only.

    Oh yes Nintendo, yes YES, don't stop!!!

    Not enough to get a Switch just yet, but I'm liking the direction.

    Takes me back to 2001, being 13 years old, staying up until midnight playing Seiken Densetsu 3 on my old Pentium 2 beige box, on an old version of ZSnes. Memories....

    Also, Kevin, Lise and Duran were the best team members.

    Good games, for sure, but Secret of Mana is a Masterpiece. Played it before Zelda, final Fantasy or any of the other great RPG series.

    Awesome, Seiken Densetsu 3 is the only one I've actually played. (ROM translated version)

    If there's an official translation for secret of mana 2 (Seiken Densetsu 3) I will buy a switch immediately to play it (I enjoyed playing the fan translated rom on my xperia play).

    Seiken Densetsu 3 is a game I would rank at the same tier as Chrono Trigger. There are times when it is better and times when it is worse but it is neck and neck the entire time. Based off multiple stories and characters alone it deserves a special mention.

    On another note, I would love to see Tales of Phantasia get some limelight, hell, any or all of the snes era rpgs that made the system what it was known for

    And now you know why the crowd at Nintendo NY cheered when they said region-locking is gone.

    Man so much is always said about Secret and SD3 (and rightly so) but it pains me how underrated and forgotten Legend of Mana (for the PS1) is, even more so than the crappy FFAdventure. It had a really novel gameplay, interest mechanics, fun combat, tons of sidequests and replayability and it was gorgeous. Its only weakness was the story which was nowhere near as compelling or well told as in the previous games, but it's still a gem of a game.
