Chrono Trigger (SNES)
Chrono Trigger (AKA クロノ・トリガ or Kurono Torigā) is a role-playing (RPG) video game -the best, in our opinion- developed and published by SquareSoft for the SNES console in 1995. Akira Toriyama, creator of the sagas Dr Slump and Dragon Ball, was responsible of the graphics and visuals for the game.
The story of Chrono Trigger takes us to a fantastic world, a universe that could be ours, if not because the axis of its development are the travels in the time. The hero of the adventure is Chrono, a young boy with pointy hair who is awakened by his mother on the day when the anniversary of the Millennial Fair is celebrated, concretely the year 1000 AD. Chrono gets up and goes to the place, until a girl appears and causes an accident…
The young girl, Marle, decides to follow our hero to an exhibition that Chrono’s best friend is going to doing. Lucca, who is named after her, is an inventor who exhibits a machine capable of transferring a body from one place to another. Chrono tries the machine and it works, but it is when Marle tries it when the problem begins: because of a strange slope, it creates a temporary paradox that opens a portal to another world, to which Marle is transported without previous warning. The adventure of Chrono Trigger begins.
Chrono, like a good hero, decides to follow it and to rescue Marle, arriving at a parallel version of its own world, but 400 years back in the time. This gives rise to the adventure, one in which Chrono and friends will travel for different epochs, seven in total, in which he must deal with a plot that threatens the destruction of the whole world as it is known. In Chrono Trigger we have to travel in time to avoid it!
Chrono Trigger was and will continue to be one of the best SNES video games ever. Its fascinating history, excellent ending (multiple dynamic endings!) and contribution to the RPG universe is undeniable, although its legacy has become more a cry of nostalgia than in a real attempt to create a good remake fans will love. You SHOULD play it…. Now!
