Chrono Trigger time warps to the DS on November 25 with multiple new dungeons

That’s when North America gets it, just in time to be a holiday gift. Chrono Trigger on the DS is essentially Chrono Trigger with a few extra features like a reworked translation and the anime movies from the PsOne port.


Hmm… it looks like Square Enix shuffled their final fact about the DS version. Chrono Trigger DS now has “brand new dungeons” instead of “a brand new dungeon”. Also instead of saying “wireless play mode” the updated fact list says there is an “arena mode”. We previously discovered Chrono Trigger’s multiplayer feature only supports two players. So, it’s a fair guess the arena mode, whatever that is, is the new wireless mode. I’m imagining Chrono Trigger PvP (player vs. player). Square Enix added something like that in Final Fantasy IV DS with the Whyt fights. I hope we’re not training Crono’s cat with meditation mini-games.

    November’s turning out to be a bad, bad month for my wallet.

    I wonder of TOSE is handling the port?

  • Re`abilitation mini-games?

    Spencer, is the inclusion of the original version confirmed ? (single-screen one) And if so, will it have the new translation or the old one ?

  • @seiya19 – From what I understand, the plan is the single screen version is more like an option than the SNES ROM. So, you’re going to have the translation in the DS game.

    I cannot wait to play this on the bus commute, no more napping :)

    As for the new translation, wonder if Luminaire would turn into the Jpn “Shining”, hope they would just refine the script w/o taking out the cool names.

    Ok, thanks. If that´s the case, then I´m guessing that they will probably include an option to disable cut-scenes as well.

    I hope that they also include all the other extra options of the PS1 release.

    By the way…now that I think about it, maybe the “arena mode” includes the “Jet Bike Special” game somehow…
