Chrono Trigger was released on Steam earlier this year, but it wasn’t received too well. The community’s main complaint seemed to be the graphics and that this game was just unashamed mobile port to Steam.

The graphic switch allows you to relive the glory days of the SNES and it even changes the text boxes to their original size. This just proves companies do listen, so always give feedback!

Detective Pikachu’s voice is hardened and gruff from years of not playing by the rules and getting into shouting matches with the chief. Anyways, check out the trailer below.
