Is there supposed to be an attachment?

That's the thing that gets me -- getting new characters can be really frakkin' hard in this game! Buying Chronos Stones is expensive, and saving up enough Chronos Stones to get more characters also takes forever (5-10 per achievement, and 1000 needed for a 10-person draw with a guaranteed 5*). Luckily, this is the only gotcha element of the game and is not only optional, but largely insignificant to the rest of the game.

I actually pre-registered the game but never started playing until two days ago. Because of that, I got 2 extra characters off the bat -- both of which were physical fighters (Miyu the Rune Knight and Benedict the Woodsmith/Warrior). So for now I am lacking a magical or defensive character, hahaha...

EDIT: I just realized I had a free draw ticket for 10 characters. I got a few new ones, including my first 5* character (Lokido) and one mage character (Erina).

I finally started playing this game. It's surprisingly better than I expected!

One thing that has surprised me is just how many Chrono music motif's are in this game. There are quite a few.

Home Arni, Marle's Theme, Peaceful Days are all here! And this is just one example.

Nice! If you post this to r/chronotrigger on reddit, I will sticky it for a few weeks.

I'm looking forward to hearing more about it!

Awesome! Can't wait to see the 2.0 of Chrono Trigger Plus!

That is pretty fascinating. I wonder if Kato viewed this as a sort of "redo" of Chrono Trigger (perhaps a parallel universe of sorts)?

I have downloaded this game and it gets a lot of praise for a mobile game. I really need to start playing it...

Thanks for posting the ToM gameplay video, Acacia Sgt! I didn't actually watch the Nintendo Direct or associated videos in too much detail due to being hella busy. That video and all the gameplay they showed was great.

I can't wait! The Mana series, although it's had its up and downs, is one of my favorite overall series. SoM is just being Chrono Trigger for me in all time favorite RPGs.

Yup! It was part of Nintendo's.

And that's awesome - Trials of Mana will be a complete 3D remake of SD3 (like the SOM remake).

Can't wait!

Interestingly enough, this didn't show up at E32019 during the SE portion last night!

Nice! About damn time we got an official port of SD3.

Looking forward to hearing the official announcement!

Why would the OP be in legal trouble if he found it on Amazon's site? Wouldn't that have been a mistake on Amazon's part, or would it have been because he was hacking/data mining the site? Doesn't make sense why s/he would simply delete the account as a result of finding this info.

I am calling BS on this.

1.) The reasons above.
2.) The naming standard sounds odd.
3.) The 3DS is nearly dead as a console; it is on it's last legs, as Nintendo and most developers have moved on to the Switch. I would be surprised to see it on the 3DS.

Edit: A quick google search reveals only a single video for this... the same video that gives that info. :(

I just wanted to give a hearty congrats to CptOvaltine on the successful launch of his Kickstarter, with over $25,000 in donations! It is well deserved!

Characters, Plot, and Themes / Re: Is the Masamune a part of Lavos?

I always assumed the Frozen Flame came AFTER Lavos arrived on earth, since it's described as a broken off piece of Lavos in Chrono Cross.

So I don't have a script in front of me at the moment, but...

I'm pretty sure when first arriving in 65 million BC (before Lavos' fall), when Crono and company ask about the Dreamstone, Ayla states that there is plenty of shiny red rock everywhere, referring to Dreamstone.

I assumed that this is the red rock that is referenced as being the source of the Masamune, the origin of the Mammon Machine, etc. Especially because, when writing the scenario of Chrono Trigger, the Frozen Flame didn't exist yet as a plot item. I do believe that Chrono Cross sort of retroactively hints that the red rock in Zeal - within the Mammon Machine - is the Frozen Flame.

I also think the two are somehow related, although entirely separate. I think the Dreamstone is moreso "of the planet" and thus is used to forge dreams into reality, ie the creation of Dream Creatures like Masa, Mune, and Doreen. It also clearly has energy conducting/producing properties and was crucial in the creation of the Mammon Machine. The Frozen Flame, meanwhile, is foreign and a planetary contaminant as a piece of Lavos, somewhat at odds with the planet. I think the Frozen Flame has some elemental ability to control and interact with the Dreamstone, and this is why the Mammon Machine (forged from Dreamstone) encases the Frozen Flame when used by Zeal.

Sort of my interpretation. Nothing formally canon, mind you.

I didn't know this game had events! I figured it was a straight-forward beginning-to-end kind of jRPG, just on mobile.
