25 years ago today, Chrono Trigger was released for the SNES in North America. An almost permanent fixture in the top of any Best SNES Games list, Chrono Trigger featured character designs of manga artist Akira Toriyama, an incredible (and interesting) score by Yosunori Mitsuda, and a sprawling adventure covering the dawn of civilization to the end of it and many points in between. posted by Zargon X (2 comments total) 2 users marked this as a favorite
As good a reason to replay it as ever. I actually wasn’t a super big fan of Chrono Trigger at first (huge FFVI fanboy here), until I replayed it and realized how well it did… pretty much everything. And decades later I still think of some cool story idea and realize I’m just thinking of a subplot or event in the game.

I went down a rabbit hole recently over the translation differences and would be curious to play it again with a patch just to see how it hits differently.

I replayed it just recently on PC and it held up wonderfully! It was amazing how much of it I still remembered.
