It’s about time.

When these games came out, they defined what adventures should be. Since then, they have become the most popular and sought-after titles in history. Now you can experience the re-release of two complete, classic games, enhanced with all-new cinemas and features never before seen in the U.S.

  • Chrono Trigger is a re-release of the original game. This time-traveling prequel to Chronos Cross is enhanced with all-new animated scenes.
  • Final Fantasy IV was previously released as Final Fantasy II, but has been completely restored with new magic, monsters, items, CG cinemas, and added features.

 

Variants

Buckle up, Buttercup. Lots of variants to tackle for Final Fantasy Chronicles.

First, there’s the Canadian release, which includes a second manual all in French for our friends up north. Note that whole the Case an manual don’t reflect it, the SLUS *does* have the F in it confirmed by the security seal.
