Without any announcement Square Enix has released Chrono Trigger on Steam. You can get this classic, that was released back in 1995 for the Super Nintendo, for € 14,99 / $ 14,99.

Untill 2 April you can the limited edition which will include the following bonus features:

  1. An enchanting and specially edited Chrono Trigger medley consisting of 5 songs: Far Off Promise, Wind Scene, Battle with Magus, Corridors of Time and Chrono Trigger.
  2. Composer Yasunori Mitsuda’s digital liner notes.
  3. A collection of 6 wallpapers for your PC.

However, this version is based on the mobile version of Chrono Trigger released back in 2011. And Square Enix changed almost nothing, resulting in a bad user interface and horrible font. So think wisely before you buy this version.
