Today, SQUARE ENIX announced that CHRONO TRIGGER for Steam has received the first of multiple patches to 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 into CHRONO TRIGGER in subsequent updates, including additional UI changes to optimize gameplay for PC users playing with either a gamepad or keyboard and mouse, improved resolution in animated cut-scenes, and more.
Alongside these changes, CHRONO TRIGGER’s Limited Edition will also be available for an extended period. This Limited Edition includes PC wallpapers, a medley of the game’s music and digital liner notes by composer Yasunori Mitsuda, and will now be available until April 30, 2018.
