Chrono Trigger was Re-Translated

This one snuck past me. (Firefox, WTF? Snuck is too a word!)

If anyone wants my pre-patched ROM, PM me. You should be able to do it on your own though.

I always wondered with all these 're-translation' projects... why the hell these talented translators don't translate un-translated game?

I mean, we've got Chrono-trigger... why another. Yeah a lot of the text is more accurate, but it's pretty superfluous. Most people won't even get the difference... and on top of that most of the translated references can be inferred easily.

last village - to - spared village... I can infer last village means it was spared.


How about some of the Albert Odyssey's (not sure which ones projects have been done for) or something (in terms of the SNES... I could think of ones for the SegaCD and Saturn I want even MORE).

I just don't see the relevance.

Yeah retranslations are a bit weird. But just looking at some of the examples on the website its pretty apparent the dialogue in the original english ver lost alot in the original translation...

Chrono Trigger is one of my most favorite games ever. This might be a good reason to revisit it.
