Square Enix Press Release
One of the Greatest RPGs of All Time Returns This Holiday Season

Los Angeles (August 18, 2008)


Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in North America, announced today that its highly anticipated Nintendo DS™ title CHRONO TRIGGER® will ship to North American retailers on November 25, 2008. A groundbreaking RPG that became an instant classic, CHRONO TRIGGER is set to be one of the most compelling handheld titles available this holiday season.



Remastered exclusively for Nintendo DS, this newly enhanced edition maintains all of the game’s original elements and spirit while introducing portability, dual-screen presentation and Touch Screen functionality.



Originally released in 1995 on the Super NES® and subsequently shipping more than 2.5 million copies worldwide, CHRONO TRIGGER is critically acclaimed as one of the greatest video games of all time. Praise continued to be showered upon the title at last month’s E3 2008 Media and Business Summit, with CHRONO TRIGGER receiving accolades including “Best RPG” and “Best DS Game.”



Players can look forward to a reunion with CHRONO TRIGGER’s multifaceted storyline, memorable soundtrack and exhilarating gameplay this November.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm all set to buy whatever square-enix wants me to, especially if I already played it ten years ago on SNES.

    I read an article the other day that basically called this the most overrated RPG ever. I think it was a game informer someone left in the shitter at work.

    Whoever called it overrated should be raped in the eyeball repeatedly. The probably assumed it was overrated because everyone always says how much they loved ChronoTrigger. And that's because of how awesome it was, not only as a game, but as a concept as well.

    Was this magazine actually in the toilet when you found it? Did you remember to wipe your ass with it when you were done?

    Chrono Trigger, besides Earthbound, is one of the only JRPGs I can legitimately say I really enjoyed. I never finished it, though.

    I finished it at least four times because I wanted to get as many endings as possible. I know there were more endings than that but then there were other games to play and I moved on.

    I will be more thorough this time. Yesss.

    Also I really dislike the art guy's style (the same guy that did DBZ, I think), but it works for this game

    also he designed the monsters (and the rest of the art, really) for Dragon Quest, and those things are adorable, so I can't hate him entirely

    FF6 was truly a delight.

    I tried to play FF5 on my PS3 and it didn't work at all. Stupid PS3 and its BS backwards compatibility.

    I doubt they'll remake it for DS, as it is available for GBA.

    And scuttlebutt says that the DS version of CT will include the animated cutscenes from the PS1 version.

    I dunno, FFIV was made for GBA and they still remade that for DS.
