Publisher Square Enix has announced that this holiday season will see the release of a newly updated DS version of its hit SNES RPG Chrono Trigger, with new features set to take full advantage of the handheld's unique capabilities, including a new wireless multiplayer mode.

The title sees characters taking control of Crono, who "must travel through time to rescue his misfortunate companion from an intricate web of past and present perils," following a time machine malfunction, eventually stumbling into an adventure to defeat "an evil force set to destroy the world."

Square Enix promises "a masterpiece with an engaging and unparalleled storyline," with an "unprecedented and inspiring musical score created by Yasunori Mitsuda," a unique "Active Time Battle system," and will maintain all of character designer Akira Toriyama's signature art style.

Though somewhat still undetailed, Square Enix says the new handheld version of the game will utilize the DSs dual screen presentation and touch-screen functionality, and will add a new dungeon to the SNES original, as well as wireless play capabilities for its multiplayer mode.
