Chrono Trigger’s PC Port Receives Graphics-Overhauling Patch

Chrono Trigger's PC port has not received the sort of welcome that many expected. Square Enix today released a patch on Steam to try and "rewind" the game's visual presentation back to its beloved roots in hopes of rectifying this.

After releasing what many consider to be a muddy-looking PC port of beloved RPG Chrono Trigger, Square Enix announced today the first in a series of planned patches aimed at rekindling the good will of disheartened Chrono fans in the PC community.

Featuring a number of graphical overhauls intended to realign the game’s visual presentation with its classic look, the new patch offers the option to play with “original graphics” (even setting this as the default mode) as well as updated fonts and dialogue windows. The opening animated scenes have also been reordered so as to more closely match the original Chrono Trigger experience.

Square Enix promises additional changes to the PC port in the near future “to enhance the PC play experience,” but aside from some UI updates, it’s not yet clear what all is in store.

What are your thoughts on this patch? Did Square Enix go too far with the original graphical overhaul of Chrono Trigger on PC?
