Get ready for a blast from the past, 90s gamers: the classic Japanese role-playing game Chrono Trigger has arrived on PCs.
In a surprise move, Square Enix just released the beloved game on Steam; it’s available now for $14.99. Check out the launch trailer below.
“As the story unfolds, embark on a journey to different eras: the present, the middle ages, the future, prehistory, and ancient times!” the game’s Steam description reads. “Whether you’re a first-time player or a longtime fan, this epic quest to save a planet’s future promises hours of enthralling adventure!”
Originally released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1995, Chrono Trigger was developed by Yuji Horii, Akira Toriyama, and Hironobu Sakaguchi – creators of the Dragon Quest, Dragon Ball, and Final Fantasy series, respectively – and has been called one of the best RPGs of all time.
Square Enix said it updated the game’s controls, graphics, and sound to make this version “the definitive version of CHRONO TRIGGER!” It features the same animated cutscenes, Dimensional Vortex, and Lost Sanctum dungeons that former players will remember from the original.
This version is only available for Windows PCs; it requires an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, an Intel HD Graphics 530, and 2GB of available space.
Those who purchase the game by April 2 will get a limited edition version with some bonus content, including a Chrono Trigger “medley consisting of 5 songs: Far Off Promise, Wind Scene, Battle with Magus, Corridors of Time, and Chrono Trigger” plus composer Yasunori Mitsuda’s digital liner notes, and a collection of 6 wallpapers for your PC.
