Update: Apparently, Sony can’t quite keep up with what they’re releasing. In a tweet from the official PlayStation Twitter, Sony stated that Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI are not coming this week. No word yet on when they expect to release them.
Original It’s been a long time coming, but those of us in the States will finally be getting two games this week that the Japanese PlayStation Network has had for what feels like forever: Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI (or as you may know it, Final Fantasy III).
Before you get too excited, it should be noted that these are the ports found in Final Fantasy Chronicles on the original PlayStation. Some take issue with those ports, partly due to the fact that the loading times are so obnoxiously long that you’ll be tempted to claw your own face off.
Load times aside, this will still be a great way to relive both beloved RPGs without the need to dig out your old SNES. It’s also a good opportunity for those who missed out on both titles to experience it for the first time, but I’d like to believe that gamers who haven’t already played Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI don’t exist. Because that’s crazy.
Whichever group you fall in, you’ll be able to download both classic RPGs when the PlayStation Store has its regular update on Tuesday. Sony didn’t reveal pricing for either title.
