There was much rejoicing when one of the most beloved 90s era RPGs launched on Steam earlier this year. But it was quickly followed by disappointment, as the PC version of Chrono Trigger had a host of problems, and was little more than a port of the mobile version.
Since then Square Enix has pledged to address the concerns and fix issues through several major patches and updates. The latest and final patch hit this week, adding key bindings, unlockable extras, and more UI tweeks.
The new Extras section is unlocked after completing the game. There you can watch all the movie scene cinematics as well as art designs. The full soundtrack is available to listen to, and you can also watch any of the endings that you have unlocked.
Previous patches added the original SNES pixel graphics and numerous interface and menu improvements for keyboards and controllers.
After five quality patches, the consensus now is that the PC version is finally a worthy port of the legendary 1995 SNES RPG.
Even better, it’s currently on sale with a 50% off discount until August 28.
Chrono Trigger is often regarded as the quintessential Japanese RPG, developed by a dream team of RPG developers. It stars Crono, a silent, spiky-haired protagonist who becomes embroiled in a time-traveling adventure to save the entire planet. It features an emotionally epic story and memorable characters designed by Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball fame.
Chrono Trigger is available on PC. It was previously ported to mobile devices (iOS, Android) as well as the Nintendo DS. It’s rated E10+.
