Chrono Trigger’s PC port is getting the original SNES graphics back

Square Enix says that three patches are coming to fix the Steam version’s problems.  Chrono Trigger’s surprise release on Steam in February was great news for fans of the classic role-playing game, right up until the point they saw what Square Enix had actually released.
