In a surprise move today, Square Enix just launched the popular classic SNES RPG Chrono Trigger on PC via Steam. What’s more, it’s available as the Chrono Trigger Limited Edition, which will come with some digital goodies only up for grabs through April 2. The game will still be up on the service, but you’ll have to act fast if you want the extra digital spoils that the Steam version promises.
The Limited Edition is $14.99 on Steam, and it comes with a digital selection of songs from the game, including “Far Off Promise,” “Wind Scene,” “Battle with Magus,” “Corridors of Time,” and “Chrono Trigger” as well as some fun wallpapers for your PC in different sizes. These bonuses will go away after April 2, after which most likely the game will be available only in its regular form, though the press release doesn’t actually specify this.
This is, for all intents and purposes, the mobile version of the game that released for iOS and Android, though it comes with several enhancements that are trickling down in an update for both mobile devices. It’s interesting that the game is coming to PC all of a sudden, especially after we just ran down 10 awesome JRPGs that needed PC versions, and Chrono Trigger was one of the important mentions. Now we just need the rest to come to fruition, and it’ll be all gravy.
