A Clearer Look At Chrono Trigger DS’ Additions

By Spencer . October 7, 2008 . 7:15am

ctdsn Famitsu has a small selection of screenshots showing Chrono Trigger’s new features. In the Dimensional Distortion dungeon players trek through three rifts of time in a new scenario which effects the End of Time. Masato Kato, one of the story writers for the original release of Chrono Trigger, is supervising the Dimensonal Distortion dungeon and its “shocking” revelations. The Dragon Sanctuary shows Crono and company talking to the Reptites who are living in a cave. It sounds like they’re going to give you fetch quests which will have you revisiting other areas.


The most mysterious feature is still the monster arena which gives time travelers access to 50 kinds of monsters. It’s sill unclear if you control imps, winged monkeys, and Nus(!) in battle or if they fight based on a pre-assigned algorithm like Final Fantasy IV DS.

    Maybe the shocker is Crono finally “speaks” :)? Totally looking forward to this.

    These additions keep looking better and better… Just the revelations from the new Dimensional Distortion dungeon make it worth the purchase.

    I wonder if these will be related to Radical Dreamers somehow… I heard that Masato Kato wasn´t satisfied with that game before, but maybe he´s planning to include some of that game adapted for this one in those story bits.

    @Pedro Silva

    Me too of course… And I´m guessing that if there´s such a thing as a new Chrono game in the future, Toriyama or someone with a similar style would work on it (like with Cross), not Nomura. Although I do like Nomura´s designs, as well as Toriyama ones.
