It has arrived. Chrono Trigger for Virtual Console is up, ready and totally playable…for 800 Wii points, of course. Still, that is the going rate for all the goodies, and Chrono Trigger definitely counts.
The original 1995 role playing game was a Super Nintendo smash that took place in a two dimensional fictitious world, and revolved around travels in Epoch, the time machine. The world is Earth-like and the gamer will be able to see some of Square Enix’s brilliant anime scenery and characters from multiple time periods in history.
