Chrono Trigger DS gets a European Release Date

Square-Enix finally lifted the veil on the European release date of Chrono Trigger: February 6.

Chrono Trigger DS is a faithful reproduction of the Super Nintendo classic, but features additional dungeons, the cutscenes from the Playstation remake, an alternate ending, not to mention the use of the DS’ two screens.

Chrono Trigger was the game that got me interested in RPGs way back in the day, and although I’d rather have a new entry to the Chrono series, I can never get enough of the original.

Chrono Trigger, Nintendo DS, February 2009 (Europe)


London (11th December 2008) Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces that CHRONO TRIGGER will be released across PAL territories on 6th of February, 2009 exclusively on the Nintendo DS system.

They say that “time is money” but for our hero, Crono it is much more than that! Get ready to travel through time to avoid the destruction of the world as we know it. With CHRONO TRIGGER, your notion of time will be turned upside down as you race against it like you’ve never done before, while all the decisions you make along the way will affect past, present and future!

Originally released in 1995 for the Super NESï CHRONO TRIGGER is regarded as a classic that was sadly never released in the PAL territories. We may not have a time machine to rectify the past, but thankfully CHRONO TRIGGER is about to change history. This all-new edition of CHRONO TRIGGER contains all the classic essence of the original while introducing the portability, dual screen presentation and Touch Screen functionality of the Nintendo DS.

John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, “CHRONO TRIGGER is one of the most anticipated Square Enix titles of 2009 and we hope for all Nintendo DS owners to experience this charismatic time travelling adventure. And with CHRONO TRIGGER’s multiple endings, there will be no end to the amount of times players can enjoy the classic story of Crono and his friends”.
