Chrono Trigger original graphics patch arrives

Chrono Trigger original graphics patch arrives

Yet Chrono Trigger's arrival last February was met with scorn when fans found it was mostly a port of the mobile version, with made-for-touchscreen menus and updated graphics. In addition, the publisher also said it will provide future updates, to keep the game running better than ever. The most pressing thing wrong with Chrono Trigger was the ugly filter applied to the backgrounds and character sprites, but today's update has added the option to trigger the "Original" graphics, which is a good start.

By the way, if you haven't heard if the Chrono Trigger vs Jay-Z album is quite something. Square Enix moved to address that dissatisfaction today with a patch that enables visual improvements including an "Original" graphics options, and also dropped a couple of before-and-after screens demonstrating the difference.

According to the press release, players will now have the option to toggle between the port's current "high-resolution character sprites and background graphics" or an "Original" mode which is "more in-line" with the SNES version.

More news: Too much of a big deal about Taimur Ali Khan

As we reported, the remade PC version of the seminal 1995 2D RPG received a barrage of criticism for its updated graphics, generally held to be blurry and inferior to those of the original game. Plus it reworks the order of the game's introductory animated sequences.

With Chrono Trigger's release coming as a complete surprise, some fans thought Square Enix would just be walking away to their next project and ignore the cries for help.

Chrono Trigger is available now on Steam for $14.99 United States dollars.
