What does /v/ think of Chrono Trigger DS?

Still on my TODO but heard it's pretty good?
>>
>>315364816
Love it as much as I love the original CT. I even like the updated translation.
>>
>>315364816

It makes Chrono Cross canon

Therefore it is not canon and doesn't exist
>>
Adds a new fun dungeon and rad new final boss but in the process makes Chrono Cross canon

>>315365468
I don't mind the fact it tied-into CC, but it doesn't change the fact that CC was half-assed in the character department due to the fact there's like 20-something characters, meaning that fucking MAGUS, someone who should be pretty goddamn important, gets the shaft development-wise as Guile, and you'd never know they were the same person, once again showing that Janus is the victim of time constraints conspiring against him. For CT's references to work in it's favor, CC would need to be remade with it in mind, instead of the fact that CC was never 100% a CT sequel from the start

It shows how Magus becomes an amnesiac Guile in the semi-future, how Dalton starts the war that's happening in CC (which is just mentioning he's totally gonna start one), and how the Time Devourer eating Schala became a thing
>>
I started replaying it recently, actually.
I deleted my save because there were embarrassing names on everyone. I'm starting from the beginning so it's not like it matters. It would've been boring if I kept all that loot.

The added content wasn't anything interesting, just an added dungeon with some overpowered items. That last sword was practically all critical hits... I just pumped Crono's speed and had him wear that counter bracer and everything would be obliterated. Lightning magic was useless compared to all those crits.

Im playing it right now.

What I dont get is how on earth people read text on the DS and previous handhelds. Its so fucking hard to read the text.

The extra content was garbage, especially the forced tie-in to CC.

I'd rather emulate the SNES version, thanks.

>>315366704

I feel you. The game looks like ass on N3DSXL.

I'm buying a DSI XL with the intent of actually not being annoyed by how awful the text is.

Plus a flash cart so I can play all the games I missed but that's neither here nor there.
>>
>>315364983
This.

>>315364816
Overall, the Dimensional Vortex dungeons are good, the mountain is fucking trash. The extra weapons are nice bonuses if you've played the game a million times like I have and want new stuff to build with. The sound quality has DS twangs but it's good anyway. The tie-in stuff to Chrono Cross ranges from "OK" to insulting (really just the one thing is insulting. Really? Dalton?). The Monster-battling minigame is pretty fun too, and can get you strong gear really early.

The second screen stuff is nice in terms of layout and managing battle. I like keeping all battle stuff there while it plays out on the top screen.

It's way better than the mobile port which is fucking garbage.
>>
>>315367818
Forgot to mention.

The new Superboss is fun. It's easy to cheese him out with Robo though, who's new weapon is basically just Ayla's Bronze Fist (a Crit is ALWAYS 9999) and they have a bunch of new accessories that massively boost your Crit Rate.

Pretty faithful to the original game. Even added a good system to keep track of al lthe endings and side quests as you unlock them. But the added end game content is terrible.

In all, its the 'definitive' version of the game. But the SNES version is still just as good.

I liked it. Kinda missed Frog's medieval speech mannerisms though.
>>
>>315364816

It's pretty cool. Frog doesn't have that annoying Elizabethan speech style.
>>
>>315366221
you have to fight schala-lavos.
>>
>>315367406
Except it doesn't because RD is a timeline where Crono is never resurrected, still exists and is referenced in Cross. Cross takes place in a split timeline (Another is the "original") but Another is just another timeline.

no different ones for all three of them, so even worse.

No, he just has a different dialect. He still speaks differently than everyone else in the game.

And holy hell, I worry what kind of accent/dialect junk they would throw into a third Chrono game.
>>
Doesn't ruin anything and Dream Devourer is cool as fuck. They even had the sense to use World Revolution for its battle theme, which is leagues better than the standard final boss theme. So all in all pretty good.
>>
>>315369935

I don't remember his speech patterns being all that different, but I haven't played the DS version (or any version) in years.

I didn't, that shit was always glaring as fuck, mostly because Frog's the only person who talks like that among an entire population of like-speeched people, same when he was just Glenn

He also has some mirin-ass gains too, Frog got the good end of the remake stick overall
>>
>>315366206
i had my theories about guile being magus back when the game was new, solely due to guile's running animation, which was just magus' and that he had a black innate.

Woolsey planned to convert everyone's speech style into Elizabethan style in the Middle ages, but there wasn't enough time.

It was actually probably one of the worst localization choices I've ever seen from Square.

In the DS version, he speaks in a very formal manner. Not quite Elizabethan 'ye olde' English. But still different from everyone else. Which is actually more accurate to the original Japanese where he speaks a very formal type of Japanese.

So on one hand, its more accurate to the Japanese. On the other hand, people got really use to Frog's old dialect. This is why translators need to be very careful with all versions of a game.
>>
>>315370294

>It was actually probably one of the worst localization choices I've ever seen from Square.
Just wait until you play the Dragon Quest games. Or Chrono Cross for that matter.
>>
>>315364816
Best version of best game. 10/10
>>
>>315368734
When you consider how Toriyama and Horii are probably locked into exclusive Squeenix-only contracts for DQ, it's probably for the best that no one else touches the Chrono IP. CT "worked" compared to the games that followed because it had that very specific group of people working on it, although out of everyone involved, Toriyama contributing to the world design is arguably why it stands-out so much to this day
>>
>>315370391

I still need to play the Japanese version of the game. I've been meaning to for two years.

The translator did indeed say that he was trying not to piss people off too much, yet he changed bit things like Frog's speech, changed item/tech names, etc, to be more accurate, yet he left Black Omen alone when it's called Black Dream in Japan. This decision has puzzled me since the DS version came out.

What a goddamn mess that would've been, was he behind CC too? Because it felt like every character needed their own retarded-ass accent for some reason. Pierre might as well have been Square's Antoine at the rate he was going
>>
>>315370846

>Because it felt like every character needed their own retarded-ass accent for some reason.

That was Richard Honeywood. He's the reason that DQ games have gotten raped with overdone accents in the English localizations.
>>
>>315364816
Its pretty good, but I always was holding out hope for Chrono Cross on the VIta or something. Preferably with expanded and restored content, but better than the shitty extra dungeon in Chrono Trigger DS
>>
>>315366206
Go play Radical Dreamers, its the story that CC is based off of and is a much better sequel to CT
>>
>>315364816
You can move the battle commands to the bottom screen, so it no longer has a seizure when enemies are moving constantly on the battle screen.

That alone makes it a lot better than the other versions
>>
>>315364816
Chrono Trigger would be better if mc you play as would inpregnate girls from the past and then you could inpregnate your descendants in future and make them your party members and then inpregnate some more descendants even farther in future.

would buy.

>>315370701
Black Omen sounds way cooler, imo, but Dream does fit in thematically with Zeal

The last main series DQ game was actually a joint venture between the Square side and Armor Project. So clearly the Square side is not above working with Horii and Toriyama. And Masato Kato still works at Square as well, meaning he could write/direct a third Chrono game quite easily. He already was working on one, but it got cancelled.

Someone above all those people is not allowing a new Chrono game to be made. Probably the same guy who is blocking Dragon Quest from being localized. But neither decision makes financial sense. Hell, a DS port of Chrono Trigger outsold a brand new, main line Star Ocean game on PS2. And they still acted like Chrono Trigger DS was a failure. But greenlit more Star Ocean games? Nothing this company does makes sense.
>>
>>315371472

Yeah, Black Omen sounds pretty cool, but it loses the whole dream theme the game had going on.

They're just looking to see what's popular so they can make sure not to give the west any more of it.

Never played the original, just the DS remake.

Enjoyed the fuck out of it though

Best team was Crono, Robo and Ayla
>>
>>315366206

Magus was dropped from CC because he was too difficult to properly integrate into the story. It had nothing to do with the amount of characters.
>>
>>315373531

Yep. Though I like to replace Robo with Magus sometimes.
>>
>>315364816
Translation is better, though I'm more fond of the Snes translation myself. The added content was hot garbage however. None of it was kept in theme with how the rest of the game plays and theres a ridiculous amount of reused content for the dungeons. That and the odd decision to force CC to tie the games more directly together as well.
>>
>>315373624
If they didn't waste their time on maybe a 70% story-useless cast of characters, they could've actually thought hard on what to do with their lifeline to CT

What do you mean? It was always canon.
>>315366374
I read somewhere it was a different Magus- a Magus from an alternate timeline, which would explain why you still have Magus with you after the event. Otherwise it would have to be a time traveling Magus from the near future.
