'Chrono Trigger' PS3 And PSP Release Outed By ESRB Listing

"Final Fantasy" may be a big deal, but true old school fans of Square Enix -- though it was just Square at the time -- know that the best of the classic role-playing games, really one of the best 16-bit era games overall, is "Chrono Trigger." The time-jumping RPG was first released for the Super NES in 1995, but it's popped up a couple times since then, in enhanced ports for PlayStation port and, later, Nintendo DS. The game is supposed to be coming to the Wii's Virtual Console in Japan this month, and we learn today that it also seems to be making its way to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable.

The news comes from every developer's favorite buzz-killer, the Entertainment Software Ratings Board. "Chrono Trigger" pops up on the site under the latest ratings listings, with the PS3 and PSP named as its eventual home. The game got a T rating, in case you're curious, for Fantasy Violence and Mild Blood. There's no summary yet, and so no way of knowing if this is the DS-enhanced version, a port of the original or something else entirely... but "Chrono Trigger" is coming. What more could you ask for than that?

Of course, the game will almost certainly be released as a PSOne Classic, so this could be the original PlayStation port. The bonus content in that enhanced edition made its way to the DS release, but the 2008 re-release also added in a few additional features, including an improved translation, running set as a default and an improved mapping system.
