Super NES – Chrono Trigger

Chrono Trigger, on the SNES, is a classic role-playing game created by Squaresoft. Their goal was to make the best RPG game of all time. It will be developed by a dream team, composed among others by the founder of Final Fantasy and director of Dragon Quest. This famous RPG shook everyone at its release in 1995 and had a runaway success.

The story follows a group of adventurers who are accidentally transported through time. During their journey, they discover that the world is on the verge of destruction. Chrono and his friends are looking for a way to save the world.

​​The combat mode is faithful to the RPG style, that is to say, each character can take an independent action in his round. A novelty that any good Chrono Trigger gamer particularly appreciated in the fighting style is that the characters have the ability to use collective fighting techniques.  That is, each character learns in the course of the adventure eight unique combat abilities that can be combined with other characters to create a duo or trio attack for maximum damage on the creatures.

​​Another aspect of the game is the time travel. The characters will be required to travel through seven periods: Prehistory, Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Present, the Cataclysm, the Future and the End Times.  As an effect, the actions taken in the past will have an impact on the future.
