Today Chrono Trigger is twelve years old and below is the original commercial that aired in Japan to promote Crono’s time travelling adventure.

Brings back memories doesn’t it? Who wants to see Square-Enix going to pick up Chrono Trigger for another game? Sequel, prequel, or remake is fine by me. Just bring back Chrono Trigger! While you’re working on it why not release it over the Virtual Console to refresh everyone’s memories and give Europe a chance to play this classic.

    I still remember vividly the excitment seeing the screenshots in gaming mags while anticpating for this game back then.

    Been craving for a prequel and direct sequel all these years, I’m not too crazy about a port w/ no enhancement though for either VC or GBA since I’ve played this game so many times for the diff. endings, on so many systems, SNES, Super Famicom, and PSX. Meanwhile, “Blue Dragon” is the next best thing from the dream team.

    Actually it would be a nice addition to have some voice-over for a remake, since no one spoke in the animated cutscenes on the PSX version. 12 yrs alrdy, how time flies, I think this game still stands the test of time though.

    I don’t. I think the game is overrated, and honestly, not as good as people would lead you to believe. Pretty much the only decent thing about that game was the music.

    Now there’s one game that could have used a good GBA remake, too bad this system is pretty much dead now. Oh well, a DS remake perhaps.

  • Veilknight

    Well, here’s the way I see it:

    If Square-Enix is going for a quick port with no enhancements, then they should go for the GBA. Those kind of things are pretty much a dime a dozen for the handheld.

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Chrono Trigger appear on the VC at the cheap price of only 800 points either. RPGs, especially in the case for Square, are usually the most sort after titles for any console so naturally they go for premium prices. In this case, CT will benefit.

    The DS is an entirely different story. They would have to go the extra mile to properly remake it, preferably in 3D like with their job on FF3.

    If they decided on the PSP, high-res 2D sprites in the same vein as their FF 1 and 2 ports is a must-have. Chrono Trigger would once again make for a brilliant showcase of 2D gaming and graphics at its finest.

    Worst part is, they could port it to DS with no enhancement what so ever and it would still sale better than Izuna :P

    Most likely, but this is Chrono Trigger after all. Whatever system or handheld its own, there’s a strong possibly that it will be a system seller just because people have been begging for a port (including me) for God knows how long. ;)

  • Badfish

    I agree, I think the game is a little over rated. It is a great time no doubt, but Square-Enix would really need to up the content if they decided to release a sequel.

  • Veilknight

    Ironically, at the time of Chrono Trigger’s release on the SNES, that was hardly a game I would consider over rated. Sure, it’s hard to forget the raving review CT received on Nintendo Power but this was always an RPG more popular in its native country compared to America, especially considering the sales number was much higher in Japan.

    Funny how word of mouth through the Internet from different gamers and sites is enough to boost any title’s popularity.

    But I’ve never been one to let that decide whether I enjoy a game or not. That’s not exactly a factor which will conclude any game’s actual quality.
