When Square Enix ported a HD remaster of the legendary J-RPG Chrono Trigger in Febuary, fans were a little disappointed with the results. The game itself looks little weird as it is a converted port of a mobile version which doesn't look the prettiest at all. but playing through it revealed a few more nasty bugs (like the infamous among fans, texture glitches). Needless to say, a very underwhelming experience for such a widely beloved game.
However it appears that all is not lost. Square Enix promise to fix and polish the game with a new and much needed update! I guess we all saw this coming really, as Square aren't exactly a shoddy company. What I'm sure most of us didn't anticipate was the upcoming feature on this new update, which is the option of switching the games graphics from HD remastered to the original. In a recent news post on Steam, Square Enix stated:
Thanks for all of your feedback, patience and support so far.
We have been working on addressing the issues that you’ve raised, and will be releasing a number of patches over the coming months as we continue to support CHRONO TRIGGER on Steam.
We’re aiming to release the first of these patches in the first half of April, and the biggest change is that it will include an option to switch between the current high-resolution graphics, and the original graphical style of CHRONO TRIGGER.
We’ll post a full list of changes here when the first patch is released. For now, be assured that we’re working very hard on adjusting, updating and supporting CHRONO TRIGGER on Steam.
As CHRONO TRIGGER is going to receive patches over the coming months, we are going to extend the availability of the Limited Edition until:
5PM, April 30th BST / 9AM, April 30th PDT
Thanks again from all of us on the CHRONO TRIGGER team.
It's good to know that such a large company takes the time to address the consumers and while his may seem expected, a lot of the time companies just don't listen to us. You can purchase the game on Steam for 14,99€. Would this update make you change your mind and purchase the game? If everything was sorted in this update, would this be the best way to experience Chrono Trigger? Let us know what you think!
