  • Chrono Trigger retranslation
    "All dialogue in the game, as well as all lists of items, weapons, armor, locations, etc. have been rendered in English once more. A clearer portrayal of Chrono Trigger as intended by its Japanese creators is now available. It is not the opinion of this project that Ted Woolsey's official translation was bad or insufficient in any way -- only that some essence of the game was lost or altered, given Nintendo of America's censorship standards and the inability of the game to hold all the original text when translated to English."

    Head on over for an overview of what's changed. Certainly interesting for hardcore CT fans, although in some cases it's understandable why Ted Woolsey chose to say things in a certain way -- certainly, not including Japanese phrases like "-sama" is arguably the better judgment call.
