    I really liked Chrono Trigger. Will this e a new game, a re skinned game or a digital comic book?

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Eh, two threads on this, so I'll repost incase one gets locked. ;)

    "Awesome news on the Chrono Trigger front. Why didn't they just scan the whole article though? Is it a FFIII/IV-style 3D remake, or a port? It's hard to tell from that image.

    Great news though. As if I needed a reason to beat Chrono Trigger for the 50th time."

    "Scan" from the other thread

    Probably. If only so they can say "FOR THE FIRST TIME EVA IN THE CONTINENT OF EUROPE!!!!1111"

    I'm hoping they don't mess with the original graphics too much. Perhaps just increase the clarity in the same way that Children of Mana did.

    I'm fed up of hearing how this is one of the greatest RPGs ever. Now I'll get the chance to decide for myself. :)

    This was actually hinted at in a Nintendo Power interview the other month, so it's not too surprising.

    Play it on an emulator. :) It's super, super easy, and reasonably short.

    So, supposedly it's a cleaned-up port, a bit like when they put the NES FF games on the GBA, and -not- a 3D remake ala FFIII and IV.

    Another tiny scan


    ust in case that tiny snippet from Shonen Jump magazine and a countdown site wasn't enough confirmation for you doubting Thomases, Square Enix just pumped out a press release detailing its ZOMG MEGATON DS version of Chrono Trigger.

    Judging by this, the DS iteration will look and sound very much like the SNES game -- Akira Toriyama's artwork will make the jump, for example, as will Yasunori Mitsuda's musical score. It's also being tweaked here and there to suit the DS's feature-set, so there'll be full touchscreen functionality, dual screen presentation, and most intriguingly, a Wireless Play mode, the details of which have yet to be fleshed out. Oh, and there's a brand new dungeon planned as well. Not exactly a straight port, then, but also not a dramatic remake.

    And here's the best bit: the game will be hitting North America this Holiday season. Better get saving.

    As great as CT is, I'd have much rather had a proper sequel. Where's Chrono Break, you bastards?

    I played this on an emulator a couple of years back. Never managed to finish it, but it was very enjoyable - particularly liked the court bit.

    They're saving that for the Wii and E3 :D

    This is so awesome! I've always wanted to play Chrono Trigger, but I hate emulators; getting to play it on DS will be a real treat! Square Enix really is spoiling us lately :)

    Heh, yeah that would be pretty shitty. 360/PS3 sequel would be good though.

    I tried playing Chrono Trigger a while back, but found it very difficult to get into. I pretty much gave up while wandering through some dull post-apocalyptic landscape. Given all the love I can only assume I didn't get to see the good bits. I can see me buying this and having it sit on the shelf forever.

    Once I heard the Spekkio music for the first time, I knew I loved the game.

    Same here, it was the music that made me want to play it. The overworld and forest theme early on did it for me.

    On a slightly related note, anyone know what the SNES emulator is like on the DS? I quite fancy one of those flash card thingies.

    Not so good, sadly. I've not had much luck with it. The Megadrive emulators are better, but still not perfect. DS is a bit weedy for 16-bit emulation, unfortunately.

    I was on gaming sabbatical from 1987 to 1996 when I got my Playstation so this game (although I have heard of it by name) means nothing to me. Should I be ashamed?

    Square trailers are always so poor. 99% cutscenes or drawings and 1% actual game footage.

    So it is the SNES version. It's identical. Super-disappointing. They could've at least remixed the music.
