For most, no extras are needed to justify the purchase of Chrono Trigger DS. No updated graphics, no new FMVs, nothing. It's pretty much the most widely respected game in the genre.
But for those wondering what those extra features exactly were, today is your day. The first big news is that of a somewhat meaty Monster Battling minigame.
Players will control, breed and battle up to 50 different species in an arena where some nifty rare items can be obtained, either on their own our against others via Nintendo Wi-Fi. Your monsters will even change their look as they get stronger.
Second, the addition of two brand new dungeons for the player to explore:
Dimensional Distortion A mysterious dungeon suddenly appears. Travel through time to overcome the challenges, and reach the depths to claim a hidden power. Clearing the different parts of the dungeon will affect the End of Time in some way.
Dragon's Sanctuary In the last leg of the story, new gates to prehistoric times and the middle ages suddenly appear. Within the dungeon, one will have to complete various requests to continue. The quests gradually increase in difficulty, and you may have to go to a different era in order to continue. Help the Reptites to reach the innermost parts of the dungeon. What could be waiting there...?
Looks like we're never going to get the chance to explore that paradise of fire and water, the long lost, oft fabled Singing Mountain~
