Like a thief in the night, Square Enix secretly released the mobile version of Chrono Trigger on PC via Steam. Aside from the bonuses that were originally found on the Nintendo DS version, this port looks to have its very own exclusives that should appeal to long-time fans of the popular JRPG.
Here’s a brief rundown on some of the new stuff you’ll be getting (from the Steam website):
Active Time Battle Version 2
During battle, time will not stop, and you can enter commands when the character’s gauge is full. The enemies’ positions will change as time passes, so choose your actions based on any given situation.
‘Tech’ moves and combos
During battle, you can unleash special ‘Tech’ moves, including abilities and/or magic and characters can combine these abilities to unleash all new combo attacks which are unique to them. There are over 50 different types of combos that you can execute between two and three characters!
Experience the ‘Dimensional Vortex’ and the ‘Lost Sanctum’ dungeons

The Lost Sanctum: enigmatic gates in prehistoric and medieval times will lead you to these forgotten chambers. Meet the challenges presented to you and long-lost secrets may be revealed…

While keeping the atmosphere of the original, the graphics have been updated in higher resolution. As for the sound and music, under the supervision of composer Yasunori Mitsuda, all songs have been updated for an even more immersive gameplay experience.
