Trivia

To date, the game has been issued three times. Once on the Super Nintendo (this was the original issue, and lacked the cut scenes later versions had), on Playstation with Final Fantasy IV (first version to have cut scenes, however this version suffered heavily from pre-battle load times), and on the Nintendo DS - which contains the best elements of both previous versions with a new translation and a few new features.

Crazy Credits

In addition to the two main endings, of which there are two versions, depending on whether you attacked Lavos with the Epoch or not, there are also ten additional endings, most of them light and goofy, that can be accessed by the bucket in the End of Time or Lucca's Telepod, at various points during the game. However, since Lavos is incredibly hard, you should only attempt this with the New Game+ option, after you have beaten the game. See more »

The Best RPG available on the SNES
28 October 2012 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

By 1995, the 16 bit wars were long over with Nintendo coming out on top the winner. The reason for this was their ability to give gamers an experience that they could never forget. Sega was making RPGs too, but While sega concentrated on just the action, Nintendo concentrated on everything - Music, Story, Art, action, and most of all, Fun. that's the main reason Chrono trigger, has so much staying power. Even years later, gamers young and old have extended conversations about it.

My experience with Chrono Trigger dates back to September of this year. I walked into a thrift store and just happened to come across a complete copy on display (Box, Cart, Manual, maps, even the original receipt from 1995) and only for 4$. If only they knew what they had. A typical copy of Chrono Trigger goes for nearly 100$ on the internet, and a complete copy can go for even more. So I bought it, and i was going to play it on a SNES i had recently Acquired that i was going to donate to the church. I started playing the game, and got sucked in so quickly it wasn't funny. for a good week & a half, i spent hours just going through the game, with the help of a walkthrough, i eventually got to the end.

In Chrono trigger, you play as Crono, a young man who lives in the peaceful kingdom of guardia, along with your best friend, a young lady named Lucca. This year, lucca has spent countless days building a machine that can teleport things and people. She's showcasing it at the local fair. so what begins as a day at the fair turns into an adventure that will take you hours to finish, but every minute is worth it.

Folks, Go download this on VC for 800 Nintendo points, or download the PS version with cutscenes on Playstation network for $9.99.
