Chrono Cross Remake Reportedly in Development

A report indicates that Square Enix's beloved role-playing game Chrono Cross may receive a full remake.

Information on the Chrono Cross remake comes via a culmination of different sources, as compiled by VGC. The most recent of which is XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker, a reputable industry insider. Speaking on the most recent episode of the XboxEra podcast, Baker said, "Chrono Cross Remastered, I think, was already on the Nivida leak list, so the game shouldn’t be a surprise – it was on Nvidia’s list." He goes on to say, "What else I was told—because everyone’s working under the assumption that it’s a PlayStation exclusive—I’ve been told that it’s not. The only word that was used was ‘multiplat’." This suggests that the game may be available on a variety of devices, including Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC.

The "Nvidia list" Baker is referring to is a leak regarding a variety of listings discovered on the servers for the Nvidia GeForce Now service. Dozens of unannounced games were discovered by digging through the entries specified in the catalog, including one for Chrono Cross Remastered.

Baker continued on to say, "But I think there’s confusion because it says that PlayStation is set to announce it, so everyone just works under the assumption that PlayStation is announcing something that would exclusive, which they don’t always do. Pragmata isn’t exclusive, they’ve announced plenty of stuff [that isn’t exclusive]."

To add further fuel to the fire, Irish musician Éabha McMahon recently mentioned on a radio that she was recording and theme for a PlayStation game that had yet to be revealed. During that same interview, McMahon mentioned that composer Michael McGlynn was also working on the project. Two weeks before these statements were made, McGlynn was featured in a tweet by Chrono Cross composer Yasunori Mitsuda.

It's worth mentioning that at the time of writing neither PlayStation nor Square Enix, the owner of the Chrono Cross license, have spoken about a potential remake. While the evidence seems to be building, it's worth approaching the idea of a new Chrono Cross game with a grain of salt until official confirmation is provided.

Square Enix has recently been successful in its endeavors to reimagine some of its more popular classic series for modern audiences. After years in development, Final Fantasy VII Remake launched for PlayStation 4 in 2020 to exceptional reviews, with critics praising the game's thoughtful and compelling recontextualization of the seminal JRPG.
