Square Enix hasn’t done much in the way of new entries in its Seiken Densetsu franchise recently, but that isn’t stopping the publisher from celebrating the series’ 25th anniversary by putting the first three titles in a single package. The Seiken Densetsu name might not mean much outside of Japan, because the series has had a rather interesting naming history.

The original Game Boy title was actually released in North America as Final Fantasy Adventure, while in Europe it was known as Mystic Quest, which you don’t want to confuse with the SNES game Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. Thankfully, the second game is much easier to remember, as it was named Secret of Mana in both North America and Europe and remains very well regarded as a classic action RPG and stood out for supporting three player co-op. Seiken Densetsu 3 was only ever released in Japan for the Super Famicom.

The collection will release for Switch in Japan on June 1 and will retail for 4,800 yen. Nothing has been said regarding a release in other markets and that could prove unlikely as there has never been an official localization for the third game. Thankfully, Switch is not region locked and allows players to access foreign eShops quite easily, so those who want to play it no matter what should be able to get their hands on it without too much trouble.
