Chrono Trigger Hits iPhone, iPad — Hooray!
Square Enix slipped another big-time port onto Apple’s iOS mobile platform today, adding the illustrious Chrono Trigger to its iPhone and iPad lineup.
The port runs at $9.99 — cheap compared to Squeenix’s other stupidly overpriced titles like Final Fantasy III (which usually start their iTunes App Store lives at $16.99). For me, that’s a forgivable price for one of the best games ever made, but it’s still just plain dumb for a game pushing 20 years old being ported into a mobile world where Grand Theft Auto III is going to draw an asking price of $4.99.
That said, it’s still awesome to have Chrono Trigger on a smartphone. It’s worth noting that this is the Nintendo DS port, not the PSX rework with the additional anime scenes. Hit this link to download the game.
