So we didn't hear anything in 2015, but will 2016 be the year that we get news of a third Chrono game in development?
I mean, surely they've had to have thought about it a little bit. Square's 2015 E3 hype video even had Frog's theme and Chrono Trigger sound effects playing in the background. WHY would they do that if the Chrono games weren't on their radar?
Is it safe to dream yet?
>Will we ever get a new Chrono game?
Nope. How many times have we been over this?
Also posting best girl
Do you honestly want a new Chrono game by modern Squenix?

Say what you will, but I loved CC. How did it ruin the plot? I thought it was given a hell of a lot more complexity than most games thanks to CC. The good guys didn't "win," just changed the cards a bit. They were dealing with forces they only barely understood- it's little wonder that some of their many ripples had unexpected effects. Whats more, I loved that CC had different characters, that it wasn't a "direct" sequel, because all too often you see the heroes just so happen to be in the right place and time, all the time. For the Chrono series, the original heroes weren't in the right place and time for the sequel's events. What's more, some of them couldn't be.
I keep hearing this.
Can I play Cross as something like a spiritual successor without getting offended by the story?
How much does it tread on Trigger? How much of Cross' story is involved with its predecessor's? Is it little enough to ignore? I'm genuinely interested because Trigger's plot was so simple.
No one said a chrono game. That's not what spiritual successor means.
It's got CT style ATB with enemies on map and time travel elements. It's made by Squaresoft. It looks like a traditionally styled RPG otherwise.
Cross' gets a bit convoluted if you're considering it alongside and interacting with Trigger's plot. Still, I love it, and frankly you can ignore a lot of the time and space mumbo jumbo and just play the game for a fairly whimsical (and depressing) plot.
Plot summaries exist if you'd like, but heck yeah you can play the game without getting frazzled. too many people are stubborn regarding CC.
Same guy: seriously, CC is bar none one of my favorite games of all time. So many nods and homages to CT, while keeping CC a game in its own right.
Cross is directly related to trigger. Cross deals with, in part, the consequences of Crono's adventures across time. For example, they picked a fight with dalton in the zeal kingdom and he gets his revenge after trigger by ensuring Guardia's downfall. Marle's kingdom doesn't even exist anymore in cross because of it.
Cross also impacts trigger somewhat. Because of serge's contact with the frozen flame, when he dies as a child, a whole new world splits off wherein crono never defeated lavos and the future is still doomed. The main plot of Cross ultimately deals with the idea of reuniting the two alternate worlds and creating a singular timeline again where the future is safe
>Because of serge's contact with the frozen flame, when he dies as a child, a whole new world splits off wherein crono never defeated lavos
Pretty sure that's wrong and doesn't make any sense.
Because the alternate world was created years after Serge's birth. The future in home world was doomed as a direct result of the split that was performed in order to save Serge from death.
Why do you want one? Why can a classic game just be left alone? It's great as it is, why do you want to rape it and ruin it's legacy forever with more sequels and spinoffs? Just look what Square Enix did to the FF games with sequels and spinoffs.
You faggots are the reason nothing original gets made anymore and why every beloved franchise has devolved into inane vapid shit.
Different timelines dude
>-Due to Serge's survival, the future averted by Crono in which Lavos destroys
the world comes back into existence, causing Chronopolis to cease to exist.
Wasn't going to say it, but I second this. That timeline could, potentially, have come to pass. Potentially. All part of the plot.
Flames of Eternity, mate. It's the same (beautiful) rom hack made better still. Nearly the same script, but with several glitches worked on, new sprites hacked into the game (a proper Human Glen sprite set), etc.
In any case, Crimson Echoes' plot is superb as a Chrono Trigger 1.5 game. Fan fiction or not, they did a great job of remaining true to the source material and not making TOO much of their own stuff. Several of the elements in Chrono Trigger DS feel the same way to me- Crimson Echoes *feels* official, even while it isn't. All hail King Zeal.

Right? Good LORD, the backgrounds in that PlayStation ONE game are phenomenal! I would honestly buy framed prints of many of those. The backgrounds. We can argue up and down about vidya being art or not, but there is undeniably good art that goes into video games.
What is it with people hating CC so much? Is it the old bit from back when it was released? People pissed it wasn't a "direct" sequel with the exact same characters and settings in 3D?
I mean, seriously, look at this! No idea why they didn't sell prints of this stuff.
Out of curiosity, how do the rest of you feel about Magus not being in the game as originally planned? How about the other characters, the fact that CC does not involve the exact same group as before?
