We have added a variety of new features to both Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger for this compilation and believe this set will appeal to fans of the original games and introduce a new generation of gamers to some of our classic titles."
Chrono Trigger will have new opening and closing cinematic sequences and several re-creations of memorable sequences, all of which add to the game's emotional impact, answer lingering questions, and offer insight into the game's successor, Chrono Cross.
The enhanced Final Fantasy IV will include a "dash" feature, allowing players to move quickly through towns and dungeons; a two-player mode that allows two players to participate in battles together; and a completely new, improved localization of the original unedited story. In addition, it contains some new cinematic sequences and includes all the original monsters, abilities, items and scenes that were not seen in the SNES version.
The cost of the bundle
will be around $40.
