Chrono Trigger Prepares to Show the PSN What’s Been Missing

April 22, 2011Written by Jonathan Leack

It was nearly 16 years ago that Square released Chrono Trigger during their prime. The title was massively successful, captivating audiences on the Super Nintendo, and eventually finding its way to several other platforms. Its PlayStation port, which released in 1999, suffered from long load times, but added some compelling anime videos to fully visualize the experience while laying the foundation for its sequel which arrived in the same year. That same port is now finding its way to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable owners.

As usual, the ESRB has let the cat out of the bag for another special classic release on the PlayStation Network. This time Chrono Trigger is the game of interest, and has already been rated for release, so expect its addition to the PlayStation Store soon.

Chrono Trigger is hailed by many as the king of RPGs, tallying an enormous following similar to that of Final Fantasy VII. It was made possible by several of the biggest names in the business, including Hironobu Sakaguchi, Dragon Quest‘s Yuji Horii, and renowned Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu. Since the title released in 1995, many of today’s gamers never had a chance to play it, but this will help to change that. Here’s to hoping for another solid sequel, or even a remake in HD.
