Square Enix has officially confirmed that it will port Chrono Trigger, the classic 1995 fantasy role-playing game with character designs by Dragon Ball manga creator Akira Toriyama, to the Nintendo DS portable console by the end of the year. Square Enix had launched a teaser site earlier this week. A short parody anime was made from the Jikū Bōken Nūmamonjā gag manga and screened at the V Jump Festival '96 event in 1996, but it shared little in common with the game. Toei Animation did adapt Toriyama's designs for newly animated in-game movies in the 1999 Sony PlayStation port, but Square Enix has yet to announce if those movies will be in the Nintendo DS port.
