Chrono Trigger is one of those classic titles that generate nostalgia and a real sense of reverie amongst gamers. Released back in 1995 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – it was a critical and commercial success.

There is a lot of pressure on the network to maintain this momentum and continue to appeal to a more diverse audience.

That is why there’s so much discussion over who will be the next Doctor.
