Photos of the Chrono Trigger Japanese PS CD and Its Contents

General Comments about the Packaging for the Japanese PlayStation release of Chrono Trigger

This iteration of Chrono Trigger came in a standard PS CD jewel case unlike its North American counterpart (which came in double-disk installments). This meant that the instruction booklet had to fit within a tighter space, ultimately resulting in more condensed content.

About the Version Used in this Project

This Japanese PS CD and its contents were purchased from eBay specifically for this project. This complete artifact was important for the player for the purpose of reviewing game mechanics and controls, as well as gaining a more in-depth knowledge of this iteration as a whole. It was made known to the player which version this was, and the history and culture intrinsically attached to it.
