One of the best RPGs of all time is now available for PC. Today, Square Enix unexpectedly launched Chrono Trigger on Steam, with an updated version of the SNES classic that will include a handful of welcome features and additions.
The PC version of Chrono Trigger will include what the developer describes as "optimized images designed for modern PCs", as well as a rewritten soundtrack that was overseen by the original composer Yasunori Mitsuda. It will also include the two bonus dungeons that come with Nintendo DS and the mobile versions of the game, and a very welcome auto-save feature. In addition, those who buy the game before April 2 will get some bonuses, including digital Mitsuda notes, a digital medley of five songs and a handful of high-definition wallpapers.
Chrono Trigger debuted in 1995 on Super Nintendo and was created by a team of star developers, including the creator of Dragon Quest, Yuji Horii, and Akira Toriyama, best known for his work on Dragon Ball. While today it represents the debut of the game on the PC, it has previously been ported to a number of platforms, including the original PlayStation, Nintendo DS, iOS and Android.
