Square Electronic Arts has announced the release of Final Fantasy Chronicles for the Sony PlayStation. The compilation release includes updated versions of SquareSoft's classic role-playing games Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy IV.
"Both Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger are widely considered groundbreaking titles that changed the standard for role-playing games,'' said Jun Iwasaki, president of Square Electronic Arts. "We have added a variety of new features to both games for this compilation and are greatly pleased to reintroduce these two classic titles to our North American fans on the PlayStation game console.''
Both games feature new opening and closing FMV sequences. Final Fantasy IV also includes a two-player mode, a dash feature for quickly traversing the vast landscapes in the game, and new monsters, abilities, and items. Both Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger were originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
