    Chrono Trigger
    When it comes to iconic video games, there are few out there that are as iconic as Chrono Trigger. It was first released for the Super Nintendo in 1995. It would be re-released for the Sony Playstation in 1999, the Nintendo DS in 2009, and for Wii Console in 2011. Early releases featured more than a dozen endings. Later releases added new content, better graphics, and FMV cut scenes. After a long wait, it is now available for all Android devices.

    Up until now, the only Android owners who could play Chrono Triggerwere ones with access to Square Enix’s Japanese Games Marketplace. Additionally, iOS devices have had the game available to them for over a year now, according to The Verge. Gamers don’t have to wait for the re-release any longer, as Chrono Trigger is now available in the Play Store for everyone.

    Chrono Trigger was made by what was considered at the time to be a dream team of designers and developers. Creators of the popular Final Fantasy series teamed up with the developers from Dragon Quest and the illustrators from Dragon Ball to bring Chrono Trigger to the masses.

    The game holds a $9.99 price tag in the Google Play Store and a few people believe that may be too high. Fans of the original Chrono Trigger will likely have no problem paying that much. In terms of game play, it has been adapted for touch screens and players shouldn’t have many problems once they get used to it. This release features added on content from the Nintendo DS.

    The only problems reported by people so far is that tablets seem to be having a hard time with it. So if you own a tablet, you may need to wait for Square Enix to fix it before purchasing. You can check out Chrono Trigger at the Google Play Store for more details.

      I wouldn’t be so quick, from the reviews and tons of comments on the play store it looks like they broke the game. The major flaw I see, you download the game in increments, i.e. you change a zone and it has to download the content. Why they did this baffles me…. CT is not a big game, even with the few FMV’s (if they’re even included.. I see no evidence they are) the game can’t be more than a gig. And if I waited an hour to download Bards Tale or Horn I’d certainly wait for this glorious game.

      Squenix needs to fix this ASAP. Tablets apparently can’t play it all due to a screen sizing glitch preventing users from hitting OK to download the content…
