There's a lot to do even after the game ends.
Trials of Mana Remake gives players an opportunity to play the game multiple times and get different results based on the characters and Classes you choose. This provides players a chance to get stronger or completely new characters to play with. But apart from the main game, there are some more post-game unlockables that you can enjoy. In this guide, you will know what to do after the game ends and the credits roll. You will also find out what is New Game Plus mode in Trials of Mana Remake.
Post-Game and New Game Plus Guide
This is everything you will get in the post-game section of Trials of Mana Remake.
Unlock Tier 4 Classes
One of the best things you can unlock in the post-game is the Tier 4 class for your characters. You can upgrade your abilities and boost your stats as well as get some new costumes. Here’s a handy guide on how to unlock Tier 4 classes.
Beat Anise (Post-Game Boss)
In the post-game, you will encounter a tough boss named Anise who has a Witch form as well as a deadlier Dragon-like serpent form. She will be found in Anise’s Stockade and before she unleashes her wrath upon you, you will be informed that she intends to destroy the world. What will unfold next is a challenging boss fight, but don’t worry, these are some strategies to use to defeat Anise in Trials of Mana Remake.
Once you beat her, you will unlock New Game+. More on this below. For now, it’s time to save your game and go back to fight her again. Why? Well, there is a Time Trial mode that will give you special rewards for beating Anise under a certain time limit.
Time Trial Mode
If you also manage to beat Anise in the time-trial mode, you can be eligible for some chain abilities.
- Defeat Anise within 6 minutes and you will unlock the Chaos Protection chain ability. The difficulty needs to be normal. This chain ability will boost the CS gauge of all companions to 100 percent.
- If you defeat her within 4 minutes, you will earn the Dark Power chain ability. The difficulty needs to be hard. This chain ability will give 100% HP recovery to all party members at the start of the battle.
- Lastly, if you defeat her under the 2-minute mark, you will get the Mana Miracle chain ability. In this case, the difficulty needs to be hard as well. With this ability, any items you use during the battle will not be spent.
What is New Game Plus Mode?
New Game+ will basically let you start the main story all over again, but this time with some things carried over and some things reset.
What gets carried over in New Game Plus?
- All the items, chain abilities that enhance stats and EXP, money (Lucre), Li’l Cactus findings and weapons and armor that you have earned.
- You will go back to your starting class. Your training points will be reset, but don’t worry, they will remain.
- You won’t be able to take the tier 4 class items and key items from your previous playthrough.
- Abilities, spells and also skills cannot be carried to the New Game Plus mode.
New Chain Abilities Unlocked
Love of Mana will be unlocked which is a chain ability that will provide a whopping 300% multiplier to EXP earned after beating opponents. Faerie will give this ability and it will end up being one of the best Chain abilities.
You get some more chain abilities as well, depending on which characters you used to beat the game. Take a look at the stat boosts characters get:
- Duran gets the Spirit Bond Chain ability which increases the Base defense by 200.
