Chrono Trigger Update Now Available on Steam: Further Patches Promised by Square Enix

As announced a few days ago, today Square Enix released the first update to the recently-released Steam version of the classic JRPG Chrono Trigger.

Following (not exactly flattering) fan-feedback, the following changes were made.

  • 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.

The publisher also promised that more updates will come down the line, including additional UI improvements to optimize gameplay for PC users playing with a controller or keyboard and mouse, better resolution in cutscenes, and more.

On top of this, the limited edition will now be available for a longer time window, until April 30th, 2018.

If the update is enough to make you want to get a copy, you can do so on Humble Bundle.
