A turn-based RPG of no small renown, Chrono Trigger was first released for the SNES in 1995. It tells the time-hopping story of Crono, a small-town lad who's swept up in an adventure to save the world from a parasitic creature of foul design. Popular from the get-go, Chrono Trigger has long been heralded as one of the best RPGs of all time, and has consequently been re-released multiple times, both as a physical game and as a digital download for several different consoles. It also received a slight reimagining on the Nintendo DS, with additional dungeons and story content added onto the original game.

Its sequel, Chrono Cross, was not received with the same level of fanfare or critical acclaim. But, hey, it had a lot to live up to, y'know?

This walkthrough will focus on the DS version of Chrono Trigger, Chrono Trigger DS, using its unique script and naming for items and locations. Most of the changes from the SNES to the DS are relatively self-explanatory when you pick up an item or reach a certain place, but for the sake of clarification, Chronopedia has a comprehensive list of name changes between the two versions here.
