Chrono Trigger 'Original Graphics' patch now available on Steam

Square Enix has released the first patch for Chrono Trigger on Steam, which will be followed by more updates in the coming months according to the publisher.

The first patch's largest update is a toggle to change to the original sprite-style. Here's what else the patch addresses:

  • ‘Original’ Graphics Setting: A new option will allow players to choose between the current high-resolution character sprites and background graphics, or an ‘Original’ mode which has a display style closer to that of the original CHRONO TRIGGER.
  • Updated Font and Dialogue Boxes: Fonts and dialogue window graphics are updated to give the game a more classic look and feel.
  • Adjusted Start-Up Sequence: The order of the animated opening sequences when starting a new game is reworked to be more in line with previous versions of the game.
  • Additional enhancements and fixes to the text and graphics within the game to enhance the PC play experience.

A Square Enix representative also provided some information in the game's Steam Community, where a handful of comparison images were provided. We have the same images below:
