"Chrono Trigger," a role-playing game for the Super Nintendo, will take the average player anywhere from 30 to 40 hours to beat. Since this can't realistically be accomplished in one sitting, "Chrono Trigger" allows you to save your game. All games are saved to a battery located inside the "Chrono Trigger" cartridge. However, you can not save your game any time you want. You must be on the overworld map to save your game.

Access the overworld map by exiting the town, dungeon or place of interest that you're in.

Press "X" on the Super Nintendo controller.

Select the "Save" icon, the last icon on the horizontal bar, and press "A" on your controller. The icon is a picture of a pen and paper.

Select a save slot from the three available slots and press "A" to save your game. The game will save automatically.


You can also save your game by using a save point when you're inside of a dungeon. Save points are white, and they sparkle.


Don't turn your game off while it is saving, as the data may become corrupted.
