Come on, who hasn’t played Chrono Trigger? All of Square’s biggest talents teamed with Dragon Quest producer Yuji Horii and character designer Akira Toriyama to make a truly classic RPG. It’s amazing to think that from a company that puts all of its resources into the Final Fantasy franchise, most people instead consider Chrono Trigger to be the best RPG ever made. Yep, it’s that good. All the loser Squaresoft fanboys you keep seeing and managing to talk to? Play Chrono Trigger and you’ll understand.
You play as Crono, a mute (yet beloved.. why?) character whose friend Lucca accidentally creates a rift in the space-time continuum and sucks a girl back four hundred years in time. You go in to rescue her and set in motion a chain of events that will save the world from total destruction a thousand years from now by an evil otherworldly entity. It’s a good game, seriously.
After a long month of grueling work, a patch for KWhazit’s Chrono Compendium Chrono Trigger Retranslation is out. In addition to inserting the entire script, the hack uses a fix to mimic Ayla’s nickname for Crono, adds in Sky / Dark elemental icons to replace Lightning / Shadow, and restores the Japanese ending art for the Marle searching for Crono with the Epoch ending. The only external changes are a pre-title screen and changes in the ASCII credits; there are no easter eggs. The linked page also connects to a “making-of / how-to” feature and a pack of three patches allowing users to implement the changes described above on personal projects. So, surprise! And have fun.

Fantastic!Reviewed By: obscurumlux01 on 04 Mar 2011
Incredible work by the CCT team, this retranslation is well worth a replay of one of the best RPGs of the 16-bit era!
Many crucial lines that were left out of the ‘official’ NA translation are present here. Lines regarding who built the Keeper’s Dome, some philosophical musing in the ‘Dream City’ of Kajar in Zeal, and especially some noteworthy lines from Magus that made my skin crawl, just cause he’s that much more badass then he was before.
The script itself was extensively processed and gone through with a fine-toothed comb. I very rarely noticed minor formatting/punctuation errors in the script. However, given the sheer scale and scope of the entirety of Chrono Trigger and that this was an all-volunteer team creating it, this very minor quibble can be easily forgiven for the benefit of a far-superior and much more understandable storyline.
Final word? PLAY IT NOW! :)
