This 1995 SNES classic is every bit as good as you've heard.
Chrono Trigger is such an amazing, timeless game that anyone can enjoy. I just wish we got more in the series.
I loved both Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross and would love to have a re-release, just to play them on a current gen console again, preferbly with Platinum Trophies.
The Steam version is pretty good now after all the patches it received. I just wish they'd also patch out the HP/ATB bars under each character.
I thought they were gonna talk about Bahamut Lagoon, lol.
Definitely one of my favorite games of all time but I’m getting older and my list is really long . I do remember the time travel very well . Cool game I should replay it again soon
It needs a Remake. Period. 4th & 5th gen games need the Remake treatment, the most. Definitely much more than Dead Space and likes.
They just need to leave it alone. It is fine the way it is. Besides Square is nowhere near what they use to be and would probably just end up ruing the remake.
FFVII PS4 is a fantastic remake, the only bad thing about it is they separated it into parts.
The way Dragon Quest 11 turned out gives me hope they actually could pull it off. DQ 11 has all the ingredients of a Chrono Trigger game, they even nailed the Toriyama art style in 3D.
a remake on that scale would be very tough. Best they can do is a remaster without going the full ff7re style. it's very costly to do that, but would look amazing. I'd be happy with a full remake going the route of Dragoncrown/Odin Sphere quality sprites, and new backgrounds, updated music and add voice acting .That'd be the best way to keep it faithful but still keep it feeling fresh.
It's right up there on my favorites for jrpgs Chrono Cross was just as good. Yasunori Mitsuda hands down one of the best music composers the music in Chrono Trigger was great and still is great love his music in Xenogears as well. I still have my SNES cart and PS1 version of Chrono Trigger and my Chrono Cross PS1 game as well.
Yes this is my favorite IP of all time. You have CT, using tinetravel to save the future. Then you have CC...the consequences of time travel and going against FATE...the perfect yin and yang that compliment eachother far more than some people will admit. I just want a 3rd mainline game to tie up some of the loose ends, or maybe aome extra content headed by Kato in a Trigger/Cross remake that covers it. This IP truly had endless potential, and it is a shame that Square abandoned it just because the games never reached FFVII numbers.
Radical Dreamers bridges the gap between Trigger and Cross.
@crazyaejay False, Radical Dreamers exists in its own timeline outside of the main Trigger timeline and the two from Cross. In Chronopolis there is a nod to RD's existence (as it was the prototype Cross was based on), but is not directly connected to the other two games. Similar to Dinopolis, the RD timeline is from its own alternate reality based on the many worlds theory. Home World and Another World in Cross are two alternate realities that branch directly off of CT as a result of Time Travel. They are not the same.
Played it for the second time last year on my SNES Mini. It's a good jrpg among others.
I find games like.this extremely dull and boring.
They misspelled Final Fantasy 3 (or 6 in Japan). But Chrono Trigger is pretty great.
6 everywhere in the world except US you mean? But yes, FFVI is and will always be amazing.
I would love to see FF VI remade as a modern AAA game with a Witcher 3 touch of production and adult writing/story telling.
Is there a way to play this game on modern systems today without using an emulator and ROMs? I kind of want to give it a try now. Edit: oops, glossed over where the article says steam port
@Qalpha Only ways I know of is buy it digitally on PS3, buy the PS1 disc, DS, Android, IOS, Steam and if you can afford it buy the SNES cart. Only other way is through ROMS and emulator if your options are all used up. Unless someone around here knows of another way to enjoy Chrono Trigger.
I'm sorry, where's the Planescape: Torment article I was led to believe was here?
It's right there. You just have to squint a little closer on the right
At the end of every year, I try and remind myself to finally finish this game on DS. I need to grind a couple hours because the final boss just destroys me. Maybe it's finally the night to do it
one of my most beloved games, a classic!
It really needs a remake, just something like the Secret of Mana remake. Still looks like the good old game, but also looks quite modern.
Chrono trigger was an amazing game. If i had to go with the best ever, I’m choosing Skies of Arcadia.
Chrono Trigger is a great game but I'm not sure I'd call it "the best RPG ever made".
I remember when you could get the full game on the App Store for free.
It’s a great game but the best RPG ever made is either Fallout 2 or Skyrim
If Chrono Trigger ever gets remade I hope its closer to what they did with Trails of Mana. Modernize it but stay faithful to the original.
Breath of Fire 3?
Good god the series needs a remake or reboot.
Reading this article made me want to play it again. As soon as I can, I'll get back to this timeless masterpiece.
