Square Enix has issued the first in a number of patches planned fix the much-derided PC port of Chrono Trigger.
Fans were not happy when the supposedly ‘definitive edition’ of SNES JRPG classic Chrono Trigger came to PC in February. In effect, it was an upscaled version of the mobile port, itself not a great version of the game. (For that, the Nintendo DS edition remains unbeaten.)
Faced with dismal Steam reviews, Square Enix has laid out plans to improve the game over a series of patches released throughout 2018. You’d think it was Destiny 2.
The first patch includes:
- Original Graphics: Choose between current high-resolution character sprites and background graphics, or a new ‘Original’ mode
- Updated Font and Dialogue Boxes: Fonts and dialogue window graphics are updated to give the game a classic look and feel
- New Start-Up: The order of the opening animated sequences are similar to previous versions of the game.
Additional changes will be released later this year to improve resolution, cut-scenes, fix the UI, and optimise its gamepad and Keyboard and mouse controls.
As a sweetener, the game’s Limited Edition– which includes PC wallpapers, a medley of the game’s music, and digital liner notes by composer Yasunori Mitsuda – will now be available until April 30, 2018.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
