Chrono Trigger: A Third Trip Through Time

By Spencer . December 2, 2008 . 1:57am

When it comes to Chrono Trigger gamers usually fall into one of three groups: they cherish it, wish they played it, or have no interest in RPGs whatsoever. Unlike other RPGs Chrono Trigger isn’t bogged down with a heavy story rife with political intrigue and war. The plot in Chrono Trigger is light. Crono, the […]

New Ending Created For Chrono Trigger DS

By Spencer . November 10, 2008 . 1:42am

Alternate closures in Chrono Trigger ranged vastly from a cat filled parade in Crono’s honor to everyone turning into reptites. In addition to new dungeons and a monster arena, there is a brand new ending to find in the DS version of Chrono Trigger. Details about the ending have obviously not been announced aside from […]

How To Evolve Your Baby Monster In Chrono Trigger

By Spencer . October 27, 2008 . 9:09am

When you start out in Chrono Trigger’s Arena of the Ages you get a puny elemental smidge, but it can grow up and become… a robot? The monster you end up with depends on the time period you train it in. The flow chart shows a Water Smidge trained in the future becomes Version 2.0. […]

More On Chrono Trigger’s Monster Arena

By Spencer . October 16, 2008 . 10:35am

Chrono Trigger isn’t turning into Chronomon. You aren’t going to wander through time trapping monsters for the monster arena feature introduced in the DS release. The four Nu-like creatures pictured on the top left are smidges, baby monsters assigned to one of the four elements in the world of Chrono Trigger. The stable master in […]

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 […]

A Glimpse Of Chrono Trigger’s Monster Arena

By Spencer . September 24, 2008 . 11:05am

Chrono Trigger’s multiplayer mode *is* monster battling. A scan from Shonen Jump confirms the rumor and the existence of the Dimensional Distortion, an original dungeon created for Chrono Trigger DS. In the Dimensional Arena you can select one of your monsters and pit it against another inside the colosseum. Combat rounds advance automatically which is […]

Chrono Trigger DS’ Online Mode… Is Monster Battling?

By Spencer . September 22, 2008 . 6:45am

Retailer Game Star seems to have leaked vague details about the new features in Chrono Trigger DS. According to their product description, there are two original dungeons. Dimensional Distortion has an extremely tough ordeal to face and a hidden power to find. Clearing the three parts of the dungeon have a unique effect of changing […]

Chrono Trigger DS has optional SNES controls, here’s arrange mode

By Spencer . September 9, 2008 . 1:09am

At E3 a Square Enix representative told us Chrono Trigger would include a single screen classic mode for purists and here it is. This is a screenshot from the DS arrange version or Chrono Trigger classic with the addition of enemy HP meters on the bottom screen. I guess Lucca’s default accessory, the Sightscope, is […]

North America gets Chrono Trigger first, but Japan gets it with a soundtrack sampler

By Spencer . August 29, 2008 . 1:10pm

Square Enix set a firm release date for Chrono Trigger in Japan. You can skip importing it since Chrono Trigger will come out on November 27 in Japan, two days after it is released in North America on November 25. Since Japan gets games on Thursdays and North America gets games on Tuesdays this is […]

Will Singing Mountain be one of the “new” dungeons in Chrono Trigger DS?

By Spencer . August 25, 2008 . 11:20am

An early version of Chrono Trigger had an area in 65,000,000 B.C. with outdoor waterfalls and indoor lavafalls. Singing Mountain was not in the final game, but it looks fairly complete. The official Chrono Trigger soundtrack even had a unique song for the level in addition to an unused battle theme. Since the assets are […]

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

By Spencer . August 18, 2008 . 11:27am

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. […]

Yaargh, a Chrono Trigger Famicom pirate cart

By Spencer . August 15, 2008 . 3:24pm

CinnamonPirate, the site that unearthed a pirated version of Final Fantasy VII for the Famicom, has an excellent article describing a pirated version of Chrono Trigger for the Famicom (via GameSetWatch!). The thought of 8-bit Chrono Trigger sounds like a technical feat, but CinnamonPirate describes the game as a miserable failure. It’s not the scaled […]

Connect two players in Chrono Trigger DS

By Spencer . August 11, 2008 . 6:10am

Square Enix hasn’t said much about what’s new in Chrono Trigger DS. There is a multiplayer mode, but it can represent anything from co-op dungeons set in a mysterious time zone to training Crono’s cat to fight like Whytkin in Final Fantasy IV. The official Japanese site gives us a smidgen of information since Chrono […]

By Spencer . August 8, 2008 . 4:13pm

Europe isn’t getting Chrono Trigger until early 2009, but their first taste of it is coming this month. Tony sends word (thanks!!) the USK (German ESRB equivalent) rated a Chrono Trigger demo specifically for the show. Leipzig Games Convention is a public show so anyone waiting to get their hands on the Chrono Trigger demo […]

Is this a subtitle for Chrono Trigger DS or a sign of a new Chrono game?

By Spencer . July 23, 2008 . 9:59am

During E3 Square Enix trademarked Echoes of Time. Since the DS port of Chrono Trigger has been out of the bag for weeks this trademark could be a subtitle to the remake we already know about. Chrono Trigger: Echoes of Time sounds much better than Chrono Trigger DS. On the other hand, Square Enix never […]
