"Original" graphics setting and more.

Chrono Trigger

Square Enix has released the first of multiple patches for the PC version of Chrono Trigger that will enhance the game’s presentation and features following fan feedback.

Today’s patch includes the following updates and adjustments:

  • ‘Original’ Graphics Setting: A new option will allow players to choose between the current high-resolution character sprites and background graphics, or an ‘Original’ mode which has a display style closer to that of the original Chrono Trigger.
  • Updated Font and Dialogue Boxes: Fonts and dialogue window graphics are updated to give the game a more classic look and feel.
  • Adjusted Start-Up Sequence: The order of the animated opening sequences when starting a new game is reworked to be more in line with previous versions of the game.
  • Additional enhancements and fixes to the text and graphics within the game to enhance the PC play experience.

Further changes will be implemented via subsequent updates, including additional user interface changes to optimize gameplay for PC users playing with either a gamepad or keyboard and mouse, improved resolution in animated cutscenes, and more.

The Chrono Trigger limited edition—which includes the game, PC wallpapers, a medley of the gaem’s music, and digital liner notes by composer Yasunori Mitsuda—will also be available for an extended period, until April 30.
