Is this a remake or a port? Strangely, I'm hoping that it's both...somehow. I can't wait for this!

Edit: I was so excited that I did not read the OP.

I've been hoping for this for a long time.

Hopefully they'll use the original SNES graphics. I don't really want to see Chrono Trigger with the Final Fantasy III/IV engine.

The GBA Final Fantasy ports were 'enhanced' ports.

Based on the Young JUMP article, CTDS will also be an enhanced port. Don't expect anything like Final Fantasy IV DS :(

According to medical professionals, the amount of time I've had a boner about this news is a potential health risk and I should seek help immediately.

I've never played Chrono Trigger, and some of my friends insist it's the best game evar, so I'm really looking forward to this. Clearly, I don't think I'm as excited as those of you who've already played it; I'm sure my friends will be happy to hear about this.

Well now I know why you have such a sad looking avatar, TrippaJay. That's how I'd look if I'd never played Chrono Trigger.

It is an amazing game, better than all the FF games. I lost my PS1 copy a long time ago :(

Totally unexpected!

/sarcasm

We all knew Square was going to do this eventually, you know with their bitchy attitude about releasing these games on the VC. Why sell it for $8.00 when you can sell it for $30.00!

Whatever, as long as it's "Enhanced" and not just a port I'm game.

I never really understood what people love so much about the game. Very short and easy game involving time travel featuring a dozen (now doubled, apparently) endings. So what?

I do like the game, but many people think it's the best on the SNES, and put up against Zelda OoT and FFVII as the best game of all time. I just don't see where they're coming from. Maybe because I only first played it a few years ago on an emulator...

I will be looking forward to the port, however.
