Another source points to possible Chrono Cross revival
Second publication claims that a remaster is in the works at Square Enix
Another source has corroborated claims that a revival of classic Square RPG Chrono Cross is in the works.
Last week XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker claimed that Chrono Cross Remastered was set to be announced for multiple platforms and now, following up the report, site Gematsu says it can corroborate the claims.
“Gematsu has also heard that a remastered version of Chrono Cross is in development,” it said.
Chrono Cross, which was released for the original PlayStation in 1999, was one of many unannounced titles listed in an Nvidia database leak in September – a list the company subsequently admitted was real, even if it said the games didn’t necessarily exist.
The following month, VGC reported on claims that PlayStation was set to announce a remake of a “big game” this Christmas, which were made by a musician who said they were involved with its soundtrack.
Folk singer Éabha McMahon, who performs as Ava, told Irish radio station WLR FM that she had recorded an Irish language theme for the game, which had yet to be revealed.
During her radio interview, McMahon claimed she worked on the mystery PlayStation game’s soundtrack with composer Michael McGlynn and his daughter, who sang on the track in question.
Less than two weeks before McMahon’s radio appearance, Chrono Cross composer Yasunori Mitsuda tweeted a photo of McGlynn and his daughter preparing to perform music remotely.
PlayStation has no events confirmed for Christmas at the time of publication, although the The Game Awards 2021 is set to take place on December 9.
