Here Comes Chrono Trigger DS

CronoIt's been a few years since I pondered on the subject of a port of the beloved Super NES RPG Chrono Trigger for the Nintendo DS, but I say better late than never.  Square-Enix has announced that the game is on the way at long last.

With artwork by famed manga artist Akira Toriyama and an unprecedented and inspiring musical score created by Yasunori Mitsuda, CHRONO TRIGGER represents the best-in-class of the video game world. This newly revamped edition maintains all of the game's original elements and spirit while introducing the portability, dual-screen presentation and Touch-Screen functionality of Nintendo DS. Players will soon be able to rediscover the exhilarating RPG experience, breathtaking storyline and innovative gameplay in the palm of their hands.

I was just thinking a few days ago that it's about time for my annual replay of the game.  I guess I can hold out for a few months and play this new version instead.  Now, let us shift from announcement joy to concern that somehow Square-Enix will screw this up.  Aw, who am I kidding?  I'm not ready to be cynical about this game just yet.

Hut, hut, Sir Magus!
