Here’s a little Wednesday reward for you: a new demo for Trials of Mana is out now and ready to download.

This is no small sample either - the download lets you play through the entire opening sections of the game, and you’ll be able to carry any progress you make over to the main game.

Take a look at the trailer:

When you start the demo, you’ll choose a party of any three from six distinct characters, each with their own skills, personality and fighting style.

Depending on who you pick, you’ll experience a different opening, story scenes and more - all the playable heroes are included in the demo, so feel free to play it a few times to experience everyone’s backstory!

Regardless of who you choose, your demo journey will take you through multiple areas, including the occupied city of Jadd, the beautiful Rabite Forest, the deadly Cascade Cavern and more.

Along the way, you’ll have plenty of chances to experience the game’s action RPG battle system against hordes of enemies, including one powerful - but visually impressive - boss. Be warned: it’s a bit of a hugger.

The demo is available on PS4, Switch and Steam now - give it a go!

Take the Trials of Mana personality quiz!

When you start the demo, you’ll be asked to choose a main character and two companions. If you’re not sure which of the amazing heroes to go with, don’t worry - we’re here to help.

We have a special personality quiz - answer a few simple questions and we’ll match you with the character whose personality best matches your own (incidentally, I just did it and got Charlotte - a result I am vewwy happy with).

What’s more, Square Enix Members who complete the quiz will also get special character avatar portraits to use on the Square Enix website - you’ll be able to show off your hero in style.

You can take the quiz here:
