Chrono Trigger rated by ESRB

Virtual Console remake of Chrono Trigger will be coming soon

Fans of Square's Super NES RPGs have been patiently waiting for news of a Virtual Console re-release of Chrono Trigger for some time. Could the wait be over?

A rating for a Wii version of Chrono Trigger has appeared on the ESRB's website. Since the game has previously been announced for distribution via Virtual Console in Japan and Europe, it's fair to assume this means a North American version of the Super NES classic is coming soon to the Wii Shop Channel.

The rating for the Wii version carries an E10+ rating, the same as the Nintendo DS edition. It carries a single content descriptor -- "Mild Fantasy Violence" like the Super NES original -- as opposed to the DS version's "Animated Blood, Mild Fantasy Violence, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol."

Joystiq recently reported that there was also a PSP and PS3 listing for the game, suggesting a PSN re-release (probably as a PSone Classic) but this seems to have disappeared from the ESRB site at this time.

There are mild, non-specific spoilers in the ESRB description, so don't read it if you've never played Chrono Trigger and were planning to. And if you weren't planning to? You really should.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
