Chrono Trigger is a cult classic role-playing game (RPG) which originally launched on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1995. Since then it has been ported to a number of devices including PlayStation and iOS. Today, the game finally released on PC, but it’s not the port many gamers were expecting. The version available on Steam is the mobile edition and it isn’t sitting well with fans.
According to Square Enix, Chrono Trigger on PC is loaded with upgrades. It apparently features updated controls, and the graphics and sound have also been revamped to make the adventure more enjoyable to play. The mysterious “Dimensional Vortex” dungeon and the forgotten “Lost Sanctum” dungeon are also part of the package.
Players journey to the forgotten past, the far future, and to the end of time in a journey to save the planet. The description of the game reads as follows.
A chance encounter amid the festivities of Guardia’s Millennial Fair in Leene Square introduces our young hero, Crono, to a girl by the name of Marle. Deciding to explore the fair together, the two soon find themselves at an exhibition of the Telepod. An unanticipated malfunction, however, sends her hurtling through a rift in the dimensions. Taking hold of the girl’s pendant, Crono bravely follows in pursuit. But the world into which he emerges is the one of four centuries before.
The game was developed by Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii, Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama, and the creators of Final Fantasy. Even though this is the mobile port of Chrono Trigger, you should give it a shot if you loved the original.
