Video: the best RPG ever made is still not on Switch


Our own Zion Grassl recently had the privilege of completing Chrono Trigger for the very first time, and even 26 years after its release, he’s completely blown away. To celebrate this achievement Zion, Jon and special guest Kevin kenson decided to sit down and rent the game for over an hour. And believe us, we could have said a lot more.

However, talking in the right words about this classic is about all we can do as there are very few ways for gamers to play this essential RPG for themselves. In 26 years, there have only been 4 outings; Super Nintendo (which skipped Europe), PlayStation (also skipped Europe), Nintendo DS, and the initially controversial but largely patched Steam version. If you play mostly on console, chances are you’ve never had the chance to purchase Chrono Trigger and that should frankly be a crime.

Switch is home to plenty of legacy RPGs, be it Final Fantasy VII, the Dragon Quest trilogy, and even newer favorites like Ni No Kuni, but what is arguably the greatest game of the 16-bit era remains stuck on Steam – tarnished by its launch reputation. Hopefully the rumors of a Chrono Cross remaster come to fruition at the very least.
