A Tour Through Square Enix’s Chrono Trigger Museum

By Spencer . October 15, 2008 . 11:07pm


Like we mentioned before Square Enix had a mini Chrono Trigger museum tucked inside their Tokyo Game Show booth. There weren’t any artifacts in glass cases to see like the very first Chrono Trigger cartridge or a Satellaview with saved Radical Dreamers data. The Chrono Trigger museum was really an art gallery which would have been boring for you to read about. Fortunately I was able to take pictures to share with you guys so it’s just like being there without the fun of shoving through a crowd. Enjoy!

    Wow great job, disappointing if they are not going to put real ships model they should at least put some cool figures and artifacts,
    now lets count how many minutes until some big sites steal these pics like they are the one who went there.

    Awesome & thanks sharing with us, the readers.
    I’ve always loved Akira Toriyama’s art, but I especially love the work he did for Chrono Trigger.
    Also, I had never seen that last picture until now. =D

  • Ah yes, I remember these images. I still remember my SNES with its bonus map and artwork poster on the back of that.

    Funny thing with the first picture, though…I’ve always thought Marle was pointing at her breasts with both hands, which irked the smile from Crono.

    Then I realized she was pointing to her pendant.

    Still like my interpretation, though.

    Toriyama has been my favorite Jpn manga artist all my life, I still have the US strategy guide filled w/ these illustrations. What intrigues me is he is always able to create an alternative universe that is diverse and believable. To see these excellent pieces framed on the wall is quite amazing.

    I was hoping the master would do a new piece for the DS cover though, and I’m disappointed they’re sticking to their respective SFC and SNES covers.

    As for Toriyama’s char design, I hope Blue Dragon 2 would feature more grown up version of the cast and more detailed drawings (eg DQ Swords).
