If you haven’t played the JRPG classic Chrono Trigger yet, then we really don’t know what to say. The game has been available on a number of platforms for some time now, and today that long list gained another entry. Chrono Trigger has officially arrived on Android, so it’s time to bust out those devices and get to saving the world.
For the uninitiated, Chrono Trigger follows a boy named Crono and his friends Marle and Lucca as they travel through time in an attempt to stop the evil creature Lavos from destroying the world as we know it. Along the way, they recruit new allies from the past, present, and future while uncovering a sinister plot. It might sound boring and overdone at first, but Chrono Trigger is widely considered to be one of the RPGs ever made.
Indeed, Chrono Trigger just so happens to be one of our favorite games, so if you’ve yet to check it out, we have to recommend that you give it a shot on Android. The port of the SNES classic will set you back $9.99, which seems a little steep for a mobile game, but many will tell you that Chrono Trigger is worth every penny. If you pick up the Android version, you’ll also be treated to the Dimension Vortex and Lost Sanctum areas, which were added in the Nintendo DS release of the game.
Also, remember that this is published by Square Enix, which isn’t exactly known for its inexpensive mobile offerings. Final Fantasy III will set you back $16 on Android, while Chaos Rings sports a $13 price tag. When you consider the high prices of those other games, Chrono Trigger‘s $9.99 price doesn’t seem too bad. If you’re interested, you can download Chrono Trigger now from the Google Play Store [download link].
