It’s About Time Chrono Trigger Made It To The Wii Virtual Console

When a role-playing game is as centred on time travel as the Square classic Chrono Trigger, you really can’t argue when I call it one of the greatest RPGs of all time. Guess what I’ll be playing come Monday?

You can Final Fantasy fanboy all you want, Squaresoft was at its absolute best when it released Chrono Trigger for the Super Nintendo way back in 1995. The script is by Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii. The character designs courtesy of Dragon Ball‘s Akira Toriyama. Yasunori Mitsuda and Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu did the music, creating what many consider to be the greatest video game soundtrack ever created. All of these elements came together in a role-playing experience like no other.

If you’ve never experienced the time travelling adventures of Crono and friends, Monday’s release on the Wii Virtual Console is your chance. If you have played it, buy it again. Pretend you come from the future.


  • Tick Tick Tick Tick. I smell a winner. And Mike I totally agree with you. Chrono Trigger is one of the best RPG’s of all time. It did absolutely everything right and to this day I still play the game at least twice or more a year

  • I remember when i owned the PAL cart for this as a kid, I literally played it to bits.

    star+star level everything, 30 min speed runs oh the good days of being a kid :3

  • Will Chrono Trigger be avaliable on the Australian Wii virtual console?

    Seriously, this game is notorious for being demanded here yet releases are scarce. As far as I know, only the Nintendo DS port made it here.

  • Just started playing it again on my DSi… it never stops pulling me into the story. Each time I play i must get every ending! lol

  • I want a Chrono Cross release on the PSN already. Come on, man. This is CT’s what, fourth re-release?

  • I’m glad that people still have a soft spot for Chrono Trigger (and I enjoyed Cross too). It’s such a pity that Squaresoft spent all their loyalty points they got from this game on their interactive movies.
