So like, in Japanese debut trailer Frog seems to be named Kaeru?

Well, kaeru is the Japanese word for frog.

Yes, but they really could've kept all the original names (doesn't really matter since we can name however we want, but still) - just translating Frog and keeping the others just kinda alienates the character.

Its the Japanese word for frog...if his name is frog then why shouldn't we call him frog? Stuff like Chrono, well, his name is not his animal, nor is there a English word for "Chrono" unless we want to call him Time rofl. If it bugs you that much change his name to Kaeru.

You kidding? No way.

It's been ages since I've played CT... not to mention it's good to see Chrono series getting some love. Here's hoping they actually add some more content to actually make it worth buying (I've played CT to death so something new to at least surprise me would be awesome).


They already announced a new dungen and multiplayer, and more is one the way. (One new dungen may sound kind of weak, but it probally wont be your average beat it in a hour dungen...)

I know and it's reasonable (considering this is a Japanese trailer), but I still feel like it broke the continuity... ignore me, I'm just a Frog fan (he has like THE most epic theme).

Kinda surprised, and glad, they didn't go for "updated" artistic approach (I can already see millions of "But it looks like DBZ!" threads popping up).

Akira Toriyama could have something to do with that lol. I think this was really nothing compared to what they did to persona, which was change the characters completly to try to convince users it was in new york...didn't work.

Chrono Trigger DS is gonna be great, bring back so good memeries. But I think they should have done some fixing up with the World Map graphics, 3D is just ridonculious because the in-game graphics are good enough.

Chrono Trigger is epic in itself... if they remixed the sound track to have it orchestrated, that would be a dream come true.

mmm...cool but chrono cross is better!!

I freakin loved the original. I might get it, although I haven't bought a DS game in like 2 years. Got more important things to get first.

Another port...not going to get it. Still...if there is someone out there who haven't played this game already they should really get it on their DS.
