Chrono Trigger Gets A 5-Hour Long Musical Release

The full story of the timeless RPG classic is shown in a 5 hour long musical.

Man on the Internet, the same creator behind Undertale the Musical, has now made a musical version of the Nintendo classic Chrono Trigger. It follows the main plot lines of the game and has a total of 60 songs included.

The timeless RPG classic, Chrono Trigger was created by Square Enix’s “Dream Team.” Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii, and Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama made up the crew.

Major Takeaways:

  • The team behind Youtube Channel has released a complete musical of 90s RPG Chrono Trigger.
  • The musical consists of a total of 60 songs and runs for five hours.

Around the middle of the 1990s, the three came up with one of the most intricate tales ever conveyed in a computer game. Young Crono and his crew had to go across time to save the planet from the catastrophic monster Lavos, and their mission would have one of 13 possible endings.

Every time period offered new locations to explore as you traveled from 65 million B.C. to 2300 A.D. and the ages in between, you would see the same world change. Some towns and dungeons survived the ages; Guardia Castle, for instance, could be explored in several historical periods. It was amazing to see how it changed over a 400-year period.

Even while time travel was a novel concept, the story wouldn’t have been nearly as memorable if it weren’t for the diverse cast of characters, which also included the wicked overlord, the mad scientist, the noble knight, the tomboyish princess, the strong cavewoman, and the calm quiet protagonist.

Each of these people had a past and a voice in the plot, guiding the player through significant events in their lives.

The ending where the player can speak to every member of the production team, including the Dream Team, who all have messages for the player, is arguably one of the most memorable in the annals of video game history.

To bring back all the nostalgia associated with the game, the team behind the Man on the Internet Youtube channel has once again done something crazy. After Undertale the Musical, they turned their attention to Chrono Trigger.

Five years after the first song was released, the entire musical is finally accessible. Here are all of the songs from the musical in order. Due to scheduling issues, the project took a pause in early February 2019 and returned on April 1 of 2021 with new songs. The whole musical can be found here along with a video of every song.

On August 11, 1995, Chrono Trigger was released in the United States. A few ports, a spin-off, and two continuations – Radical Dreamers: Nusumenai Hseki and Chrono Cross—have been released during that time.

Chrono Trigger is one of the greatest games ever made.  Untouched by time, it continues to inspire games to date. Over the years, thousands of people have produced and distributed fan art, and others continue to perform music covers. Others, however, have permanent ink celebrating this game in the form of tattoos on their bodies.

Now that Chrono Trigger is available in musical form, you may relive all the memorable moments from this legendary and timeless RPG. A youngster, a princess, an engineer, a frog, a robot, a cavewoman, and a wicked sorcerer are featured in this traditional story of how they came to be known in history.
