Legendary RPG Chrono Trigger Comes to WiiWare

It seems like there's just less and less about Nintendo that gets my juices flowing, which is why reliving some of the old glory days is such a treat. Those of you born after 1990 probably won't have a clue why us veteran gamers are making such a big deal out of an old game coming to WiiWare and we don't really care. It's your loss that you weren't around to experience its glory in the good old days. Deal with it.

Chrono Trigger was originally released in 1995 for the SNES and is definitely one of the highest regarded RPGs of all time. I fondly remember a compelling story mixed in with unique gameplay mechanics such as team attacks that required collaboration between two or more characters to deal some serious damage. Let's also not forget about being able to replay the game from the beginning with your characters starting out at the level they were when you finished the previous time. SPOILER!! I do remember your characters needed to be at least level 75 to have a chance at the last boss.

To find out when you can get your hands on this legendary classic, hit the break.

We can expect Chrono Trigger to be available on WiiWare starting May 16th. If only I still had a Wii... but that's a story for another day. There is a possibility of a mobile and PSN version in the works but there is not much more details on that.
