One of the most celebrated role-playing games of the '90s makes its dual-screen debut with Chrono Trigger. The core gameplay, visuals, and storyline remain identical to the 16-bit version released in 1995. Katana-wielding Crono and his friends embark on a time-traveling quest to alter the past and save the world from an alien threat named Lavos. Team up with a cast of unusual heroes, including a frog and robot, while exploring both prehistoric and futuristic locales from an overhead perspective. Engage foes in a battle system that combines menu-driven commands with time-sensitive actions for each party member. <br><br>You'll also solve puzzles, master special abilities called techs, complete quests, and interact with a wide assortment of characters. In addition to presenting the game on two screens, the DS version of Chrono Trigger introduces a touch-screen interface, new areas to explore, and wireless support. The original version's controls are included as well. The "Dimensional Vortex" and the "Lost Sanctum" provide new challenges to your party, while the "Arena of the Ages" lets you raise and train a creature to battle other creatures. The latter lets you enter head-to-head matches with friends via wireless connection.
