The third patch that was applied to the title yesterday brings several improvements. Specifically, the Chrono Trigger UI received changes to several areas. The UI changes have been applied for both gamepad and keyboard controls and are noticeable on the world map, inside towns and dungeons, shop menus, and during time warps.

The UI for unique scenarios, which includes the display of narrative choices and mini-games are also updated. Players are allowed to change the above depending on their preference between gamepad or keyboard and mouse inputs. This can be done through the game settings or as an option when starting a new game

Changes to improve the general gameplay, the performance, difficulty balancing, and bug fixes have also been applied through the third Chrono Trigger patch.
