We all suspected that the Steam version of Chrono Trigger was just a port from the mobile version. The writing was on the wall however there was no conclusive evidence for such a thing. Until now as the game’s Spanish version has pretty much confirmed its origins.
While saving, the Spanish version of Chrono Trigger asks PC gamers not to turn off their phones. Yeap, it appears that Square Enix did not edit the text for the Spanish version, which basically confirms that the Steam version of Chrono Trigger is a port from the mobile version.

Furthermore, and as we’ve already said, the Steam version suffers from an awful image processing filter that completely destroys the game’s visuals. Our guess is that Square Enix used a linear filter instead of the more advanced HQ2X and 6xBRz filters that are more demanding (and wouldn’t obviously be used in the mobile versions).
Well, at least this game is not plagued by the Denuvo anti-tamper tech so that’s something… right? Right?
