BS Chrono Trigger: Jet Bike Special Square1995In this game, you must defeat Johnny in a hoverbike race, playing as Crono. This game is actually a mini-game taken from the SNES game, 'Chrono Trigger'.

Chrono Cross  Square2000While it's officially a sequel to the immensely popular Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross is completely its own role-playing game with over 40 characters, a branching story line, and multiple endings. Like its predecessor, the game is about crossing through time and setting things right. This story focuses on Serge's quest for the Frozen Flame, which will give the beholder the power to bend space and time. Serge wants the power to save himself from dying in a parallel universe but, as you can guess, nefarious forces are also vying for the Frozen Flame to suit their own purposes. Chrono Cross features the stylish character designs and wondrous cut scenes that gamers have come to expect from SquareSoft, but the game also has a number of gameplay innovations. Though the battle engine is essentially turn-based, characters don't have to wait their turn to cast a spell or make an attack; battles are moderated by stamina. Also, the repetitive battles with lesser monsters that make so many RPGs sag can be easily avoided because all monsters can be seen on the screen.***Sequel to the legendary Chrono Trigger (SNES). And a rather disappointing one in my opinion... there's almost no character development (I mean seriously, how do you develop like a hundred characters?) and the crappy battle system was the final nail in the coffin.
Chrono Trigger  Square Enix2008When a newly developed teleportation device 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. The swashbuckling adventure that ensues soon unveils an evil force set to destroy the world, triggering Crono's race against time to change the course of history and bring about a brighter future. Features an engaging and unparalleled storyline, leading to the discovery of multiple epic conclusions to a journey that transcends time. An inspiring musical score created by Yasunori Mitsuda. Intriguing battle system made possible by the unique combination of the Active Time Battle system and Tech skills. Famed character designer Akira Toriyama lends his signature art style to create the vibrant world that has captivated gamers around the world. Taking advantage of the Nintendo DS hardware, CHRONO TRIGGER makes its way onto the portable platform with all-new dual screen presentation and Touch-Screen functionality. A brand new dungeon and a Wireless Play mode adds exciting new dimensions to this timeless classic. Nintendo DSlabelimagesubject
Chrono Trigger  Square1995Nobuo Uematsu stepped in to finish the work of Yasunori Mitsuda when Mitsuda was unavailable due to temporary health issues aggravated by self-imposed overworking. 54 tracks are considered to be by Mitsuda while 10 are entirely by Uematsu.***
[32]***The 32-Meg quest begins.The millennium. A portal is opened. The chain of time is broken. A young man is transported into the past, altering the course of history and the outcome of the future. He has to find his way home, but first he must travel to the outer edges of time to repair the world's chronology.
On the way, he encounters strange friends and foes, utilizes incredible devices and vehicles, and penetrates and neutralizes the fortresses of the past, present, and future. A paradox has been created. If he does no restore the order of time, nothing will ever be the same. He is the one who will become a hero. He is Crono.***Classic time-traveling Squaresoft RPG with some of the best graphics and music of its time.

Although Chrono Trigger is a tad overrated, it is still quite a marvelous RPG. It features a huge sprawling quest, multiple characters with different skills, excellent graphics and music, and an ATB battle system that features a wide assortment of spells and even combo attacks! The game has many different endings for replay value, and you can restart with all your items and experience from previous games.
[Spiez]***I don't think Chrono Trigger is overrated at all. I can't think of many RPGs on the SNES, or even on modern systems, that can rival Chrono Trigger. Awesome story, music, graphics, characters, battle system, replayability... the list goes on. The only SNES games I'd even put on the same plateau with Chrono Trigger are probably Seiken Densetsu 3 and Front Mission... maybe Final Fantasy VI and Star Ocean. Bottom line--Chrono Trigger is the benchmark for Japanese-style RPGs.

Apparently, some text referring to demons, alcohol, etc. and possibly some plot-related text as well, were cut out of the English release. An unofficial re-translation is being worked on at the [[link: Chrono Compendium]] (as well as dozens of quality fan-made games and hacks).
