Square Enix Sends Another Patch to Chrono Trigger on Steam

If you’ve still been having issues with Chrono Trigger on Steam, Square Enix just dropped another patch that they’re hoping with smooth things out. The latest patch, of which we have the notes for below, is supposed to smooth over a number of technical issues, as well as give improvements to the battles that have been giving Chrono Trigger players angry fits. At the moment, those patches have seemed to smooth things over for some of the higher problems we’ve been noticing. We’ll see if players find more issues now that the patch is active.
