Chrono Trigger to hit North American Virtual Console service next week

Square Enix have revealed that JRPG classic Chrono Trigger is due to release across North America through Nintendo’s Virtual Console service on May 16th.

Originally released in 1995 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Chrono Trigger was created by a pool of developmental talent, including Yuji Horii, creator of the Dragon Quest series, Akira Toriyama, creator of Dragon Ball, and the creators of Final Fantasy.

Hailed as one of the greatest games of all time by both critics and fans alike, Chrono Trigger features a unique and multifaceted storyline that revolutionised the world of RPGs – multiple endings were incorporated, with the player’s actions and side quests determining the outcome.

The story centres upon a newly developed teleportation device which malfunctions at the Millennial Fair. Young Crono must travel through time to rescue his unfortunate companion from an intricate web of past and present perils, with each decision you make affecting the past, present and future.

Square Enix have also confirmed that the title is on the way for the European Virtual Console service, although it is yet to be given a release date.
