Chrono Trigger is a SNES RPG similar to the Final Fantasy series. The story takes place in many different time periods ranging from the pre-historic days to the end of time. It has a “New Game +” mode and 13 different endings (determined by when you choose to battle the final boss) so the replay value on this one is through the roof.
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! :)
