Despite some graphic inconsistencies, this complete revamping of the beloved and familiar Chrono Trigger introduction is, for lack of a better word, radically bitchin.

So this had me laughing more than it should have. What can I say? I’m a sucker for Street Fighter sound effects and religulous circus antics. The psycho crusher bit at the end had me giggling like a five year old. Coincidentally, it had my five year old laughing like a grown man.
Benny Hinn’s fireball game is godlike, bro.
