The 'Big PlayStation Remake' Reportedly is Chrono Cross and is Multiplatform

The 'Big PlayStation Remake' Reportedly is Chrono Cross and is Multiplatform - News

Irish Singer Eabha McMahon, who is better known as AVA, last month revealed she wrote a song for a big PlayStation remake that will be announced in December. 

XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker in the latest XboxEra Podcast said the big PlayStation remake is Chrono Cross.

"Chrono Cross Remastered, I think, was already on the Nvidia leak list, so the game shouldn't be a surprise – it was on Nvidia's list," said Baker via VideoGamesChronicle. "But I was told that that VGC article is about Chrono Cross Remastered.

"Everyone's working under the assumption that it's a PlayStation exclusive," he added, "I've been told that it's not. The only word that was used was multiplat.

"Now, when I hear JRPG and multiplat, I automatically assume PC, PlayStation, Switch, that's my assumption. That's not what I was told, that's just my assumption. All my source said to me was multiplat. That's what they said, they told me it wasn't PlayStation exclusive.

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].

"But again, I don't know if Xbox is one of those platforms. I work under the assumption that it's not because it's a JRPG."

coming from "XboxEra"... realy?
Also, He talks about "remaster"! There's a big deal of difference on "remaster" and "remake".

Despite the name, they always have leaks from many different gaming platforms

The remake rumour could easily have just been wrong. The game being Chrono Cross isn't new though: it's been one of the leading speculations since the original rumour surfaced. Will have to see which person got better sources.

I would've liked a Chrono Trigger remake first but I like Cross as well.

If this news it's true it would be exteely disappointing. Chrono Trigger and FF3(6) deserve a remake way more and both have bigger flowing than Chrono Cross

CT and FF6 have at least had numerous different versions over the years. FF6 has that pixel remaster on the way very soon.

As flawed as some of those ports are, I’d be more interested in Chrono Cross. I haven’t seen it around since the PS1 release.

I kinda disagree. The games you mentioned have actually aged better than Chrono Cross, and also have been re-released on multiple newer platforms. Also, if this is indeed a remaster and not a full remake, Chrono Cross benefits more from the facelift. If they were remaking it from ground up then I would agree with Chrono Trigger or FF6 being better candidates.

Yeah I was referring to a remake like FF7. Remaster I could care less which one they make first but if it's a remake Trigger and FF6 need to go first.

The game was amazing once you got over the fact it was no Chrono Trigger. If true I look forward to playing it.

Constantly switching team members was probably the only big gripe I had with the game. the story was solid.

I wouldn't call this a big remake. So, if this is in fact the game that Ava was talking about, she really made it into something more than it is.

It's possible. Maybe Bluepoint were working on it before PlayStation bought them so they could be honoring the previous platforms it was being developed for.

Not even remotely excited for this. Unless it's a complete remake.
