Chrono Trigger rated by ESRB

Virtual Console remake of Chrono Trigger will be coming soon

Fans of Square's Super NES RPGs have been patiently waiting for news of a Virtual Console re-release of Chrono Trigger for some time. Could the wait be over?

A rating for a Wii version of Chrono Trigger has appeared on the ESRB's website. Since the game has previously been announced for distribution via Virtual Console in Japan and Europe, it's fair to assume this means a North American version of the Super NES classic is coming soon to the Wii Shop Channel.

The rating for the Wii version carries an E10+ rating, the same as the Nintendo DS edition. It carries a single content descriptor -- "Mild Fantasy Violence" like the Super NES original -- as opposed to the DS version's "Animated Blood, Mild Fantasy Violence, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol."

Joystiq recently reported that there was also a PSP and PS3 listing for the game, suggesting a PSN re-release (probably as a PSone Classic) but this seems to have disappeared from the ESRB site at this time.

There are mild, non-specific spoilers in the ESRB description, so don't read it if you've never played Chrono Trigger and were planning to. And if you weren't planning to? You really should.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
