As previously reported, Square Enix’s Chrono Trigger was given a surprise release on Steam last week. However, despite the fact that Chrono Trigger is considered to be one of the single greatest RPGs of all time and some of the new features the Steam version has introduced, certain fans have taken issue with the re-release, with its Steam reviews being “mostly negative” with a 39% approval rating.

Much of their frustration has come from the fact that the Steam version of Chrono Trigger is seemingly a port of the game’s mobile version (as opposed to the original console version.)

In response to this discourse, Square Enix took to Chrono Trigger‘s Steam news page to issue a statement:

“Hi everyone, thank you for the feedback you’ve shared so far regarding Chrono Trigger. We wanted to let you know that we are reading and listening to your messages and are aware of all of the issues that you’ve raised, which we are currently assessing. Please keep an eye on the Steam page for further information. Thanks for your patience and support, the Chrono Trigger team.”

As of yet, there are no specifics on what changes they plan to make to the Steam version of the game.

Chrono Trigger is currently available on PC, iOS, Android, and classic consoles.
