Originally released in 1995 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System™, CHRONO TRIGGER was created by a talented development team— Yuji Horii (script creator), creator of the DRAGON QUEST® series, Akira Toriyama (character design), creator of Dragon Ball®, and the creators of FINAL FANTASY®— all of whom were key contributors to the game’s success.

CHRONO TRIGGER has been hailed as one of the greatest games of all time by critics and fans alike. With a unique and multifaceted storyline, the game revolutionized the world of RPGs with never–before–seen features, including an unprecedented soundtrack and multiple endings determined by side quests and the player’s actions.

In CHRONO TRIGGER, the notion of time is turned upside down as players race against it like never before, while all the decisions made along the way will affect the past, present and future.
