“Good morning, Crono!” Watch this Chrono Trigger DS video review.


To quote the IGN video review: “There’s a reoccurring theme in Chrono Trigger DS, and it’s an important one for a game this historical. The game is virtually unchanged in its core, having a new script re-write, but retaining the visuals, music, character designs, interface styles, and options of the source material. At the same time, Square Enix also ensures that this is the definitive version of Chrono Trigger out there, as the game comes complete with every option you could ever want for touch vs. button control, two or single screen display, or game pacing and difficulty. Where things should have been left the same, they were. Where fixes or additions could be made, they have. Yes it’s a $40 game for a title many of us have played until our thumbs were sore, and it’s unchanged in a lot of ways from what you played back in 1995 or in 2001, but it’s also just as captivating, imaginative, or well made now as it was then. I could write volumes on this game, but it isn’t needed. If you’ve never played Chrono Trigger before, buy this game. If you’re a die-hard fan and want to support one of the greatest games of all time, buy this game. If you’re having trouble validating a $40 purchase for what is ultimately the same game, it’s the wrong choice for you, and your cash is better spent elsewhere. Any way you slice it though, Chrono Trigger is one of the greatest RPGs of all time, and it’s a game everyone – whether on DS, PSX, Super NES, or in the future – should play.”

Might this increase the chances of Chrono Trigger 2?

Chrono Trigger 2 still not happening at Square Enix due to politics

Source: videogamesblogger.com

Chrono Trigger on SNESThere are no known plans for Chrono Trigger 2 despite various claims from creators of the original. Although fans of 1995’s Chrono Trigger did get an indirect sequel in 2000’s Chrono Cross, it didn’t wrap up certain unfinished plot threads of the original game since it had a new cast. Let’s see how this Square drama has played out over the years.

2001: Hironobu Sakaguchi said that the developers of Chrono Cross wanted to make a new Chrono game. The same year, Square applied for a trademark for the name Chrono Break in the United States and Chrono Brake in Japan. However, the United States trademark was dropped in 2004.

2003: Director Takashi Tokita (also of Parasite Eve fame) mentioned Chrono Trigger 2 in a Japanese interview. Sadly further details are unknown (at least I can’t make any sense of the Tokita game interview translation).

Chrono Cross on PlayStation2005: Supervisor Yuji Horii (of Dragon Quest creator fame) expressed no interest in returning to the Chrono franchise saying “Since everything I would like to do can be done in a Dragon Quest title, the chances of me making a sequel to Chrono Trigger are unlikely. Although as long as the title is interesting I’d definitely love to check it out and play it, even if it’s not Chrono Trigger.”

2007: Supervisor Hironobu Sakaguchi (of Final Fantasy creator fame) remarked in April that his creation Blue Dragon was an “extension of [Chrono Trigger].”

During an interview in February Square Enix’s Senior Vice President Hiromichi Tanaka said that although no sequel is currently planned, some sort of sequel is still possible if the Chrono Cross developers can be reunited. To quote: “There’s still a possibility, but since the main director is not working for Square Enix now — he’s working on other titles in a different company, Namco Bandai, it’s a bit difficult to ask him to come back and be the head of a team again. And also, Kato-san is working on the fourth game in the Mana series. So there’s still a possibility that he might think he might want to make it again…”

Chrono Trigger remake on PlayStation2008: Music composer Yasunori Mitsuda has expressed interest in scoring a new game, but warned that “there are a lot of politics involved” with the series. He stressed that Masato Kato (the Story Planner) should participate in development.

I suppose you could say fans have been Chronoroll’d!

Chrono Trigger shrinkwrapped reaches amazing price on ebay

Source: videogamesblogger.com

Final Fantasy Chronicles (Chrono Trigger & Final Fantasy IV) for PS1What would you do for a sealed copy of the Super Nintendo cult-classic RPG Chrono Trigger? Would you pay Xbox 360/PS3 prices for that item?

Well some people definitely are willing to do just that. An auction on Ebay has popped up for a shrink-wrapped, sealed copy of Chrono Trigger and it has reached a dollar amount of $520 as of this writing!

I am a collector of video games and I did pay high dollar for my Virtual Boy and 9 games all with box and instructions, but I could not imagine paying such an insanely high price even for a golden relic such as a sealed copy of Chrono Trigger, as cool as that would be to own.

I do respect people that love collecting that much though, I think collecting is a really fun thing to do. So any of you gonna bid? P – Via Kotaku
