Square Enix today announed that, for the first time ever, Chrono Trigger will be officially released across PAL territories on the DS in early 2009.
Originally released in 1995 for the NES, Chrono is a classic that — despite the howling and wailing of gamers everywhere — was never released in the PAL territories. This new and improved edition of the original game will contain all of the original content whilst playing around with the carry-on, dual-screen, stylus-waggling functionality that we’ve come to know and love from the DS.
CEO of Square Enix, John Yamamoto said, “It gives me great pleasure to see Chrono Trigger being released in Europe and the PAL territories. With its ground breaking story and gameplay, this epic RPG with multiple endings has already won the hearts of many fans and I hope it delights a whole new audience of players into revisiting the Chrono Trigger world time and again.”
