Chrono Trigger

Square Enix has ported Chrono Trigger to Android. This is the second smartphone port of the classic SNES RPG, the first being its December 2011 iOS release. Like the iOS version, Chrono Trigger for Android features touchscreen menus and virtual directional controls and buttons. As it is based on the DS version, it features Tom Slattery’s translation instead of Ted Woolsey’s. It also includes the Dimension Vortex and Lost Sanctum bonus areas, but not the Arena of the Ages mini-game, which remains a DS exclusive. In addition to English, it also supports French, Italian, German, Spanish, traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, and Japanese.

Chrono Trigger for Android requires Android v2.2 or higher. It is a 36 MB download. It costs $9.99 (USD/CAD) in the United States and Canada. Regional pricing will differ.

About Oscar Tong

Oscar joined oprainfall late September 2012 in response to a recruitment drive. He quickly discovered his job was much harder than he had anticipated. Despite the constant challenge, he has come to enjoy his responsibilities.

When he is not scrambling to meet a deadline, Oscar enjoys story-driven games with a strong narrative. He is especially fond of computer adventure games, role-playing games, and visual novels. He hopes the world will one day awaken to the power of video games as a storytelling medium.




  • That’s… rather aggressive pricing, considering it’s what? 700 points for Wii, and that the game is going on about 15 years old…

  • Opo

    I just wish that they would re release the Ted Woolsey’s translation. The more recent one is too serious and drops many lines that made the original stand out. Seriously, who could forget Frog’s attempt at speaking in old English, or the “soda” guzzling contest.
