Chrono Trigger

Since its initial 1995 launch on the SNES, Chrono Trigger has been released on a number of other platforms. The acclaimed role-playing game was brought to the original PlayStation as part of the Final Fantasy Chronicles compilation in 2001 after being released solo for the platform in Japan in 1999. In 2008, a reworked version of the game arrived on the DS to critical acclaim, and a Virtual Console port will hit Japanese Wiis later this month.

Chrono Trigger is apparently coming to the PS3 and PSP.

Now it appears Chrono Trigger is coming to two more platforms. Recently, the Entertainment Software Ratings Board gave the game a Teen-for-Teen rating for the PlayStation 3 and PSP. Typically, such dual ratings for a game released on the original PlayStation mean that the title is being readied for rerelease as a PSone Classic on the PlayStation Network.

Chrono Trigger focuses on a main character named Crono and his friends Lucca and Marle. When inventor Lucca's teleportation experiment inadvertently sends the friends back in time, they discover an ancient evil that will one day ruin their world, and so they set out to fix it. The game featured a wide variety of fantastical environments throughout its multitude of time periods, and its storyline was typically twisty for a Square Enix RPG.
