General Info
Chrono Trigger was developed by Square (now teamed up with Enix, it is called Square Enix). It was released in 1995 for the SNES (Super Nintendo). The game has since been called one of the best RPGs by hundreds of fans.
 Plot (Very Condensed)
Chrono Trigger starts off in the year 1000 AD. Crono a male teenager and his friends Marle, and Lucca accidentally find a way to warp themselves through time and eventually the three end up in the future. There they learn that their planet is almost completely destroyed, and that only a small number of people remain. After seeing old video footage the three learn that a monster named Lavos is responsible. The three then vow to warp themselves through time to try to stop this future from becoming a reality. Along the way the three make friends and enemies who join them on their quest.
 Sequels and Re-releases
Chrono Trigger has had two sequels Radical Dreamers, and Chrono Cross. Radical Dreamers is a Japanese text based game that explains the events that occur in between Chrono Trigger, and Chrono Cross. Chrono Cross takes place years after Chrono Trigger and though none of the characters from Chrono Trigger appear fully several are mentioned and appear as ghost versions of themselves. The game also mentions, and takes place in some of the areas from Chrono Trigger. Chrono Trigger has been re-released for the PSX (Playstation), and DS under the name Chrono Trigger DS. The PSX re-release added new anime cut scenes to the game and also had some different music arrangements. The DS re-release had significant changes such as taking out the opening to the game where Crono's mother awakens him. It was also retranslated and Frog's (a character in the game) accent was taken out. Chrono Trigger DS also added a new ending to the game.
 Series Future
Though there hasn't been a new game in the Chrono Series since Chrono Cross fans remain hopeful that Square Enix will do more with the series than just remaking the games already in the series.
