Umm i heard square was dissapointed with the sales so they arnt looking to expand upon the chrono series.
Firstly this is a 14yr old game therefore is going to appear dated to some
Secondly it is a game developed for the SNES released on the DS with no visual or audio upgrades therefore looks inferior to other DS games
Thirdly it will difinetly go on to sell over 1 million copies and considering how little work you put into this game I think thats a profit
Square make more chrono games

@ arsenal009
Kids in France, Spain and Germany DO learn english, actually it's obligatory. Still it is a barrier. If you are a 12 year old kid, you've had english classes for 2 years max - not enough for Chrono Trigger, I'd say. And not everybody is equally talented in foreign languages... I'd guess it's no different in England: The higher your education, the better your foreign language skills.

arsenal009 : i'm french, and the game had been translated in french.

But ONLY in french. And what is incredible is that, in france, it went out of stock in only 3 weeks, and when I went to amsterdam (holland), there were a ton of copies of the game...

So well, yes, people don't buy the game because it's not in their language. Sad...

Come on! That's so ignorant. As others pointed out already, this game didn't sell because SE didn't translate it. So no kids will play it, because they don't understand English - and in many European countries even adults don't know English well enough for such a story heavy game.

I think the main reason this is not a success in europe is because we've never had any chrono games. the marketing for it is almost none existent as well. I'll get it eventually, but the price for it is rather steep at the moment. I played it a couple of years ago on a rom, but my pc got infected, so all my saves were deleted, alas I never finished it.

Just to be clear, Chrono Cross depends on the story of Chrono Trigger and the main ending result.

Belthesar in the future is originally sent to a wasteland. In changing the future (during CT) you allow Belthesar to conduct research. The "Time Crash" involved an incident with pulling the future into the past, 'creating' a new dimension.

Yes, it's a different dimension, but the entire premise of the Chrono Series is that changing history changes the future, and creates a new dimension.

BroFe :
Chrono Cross is not a sequal it's a side story. If you don't know that then you can't be that big a fan of this game.

It takes place in another dimension; think that old tv show Sliders with parallel Earths.

It's actually said a couple times in the game if you've forgotten.

Anyway, all the dumb playable characters killed Cross for me. Made the game to ridiculous; with a block of wood and other dumb characters like that plant person NeoFio, and mojo the talking voodoo doll.

I think the problem with Cross was they ran out of time. A remake would be cool to see if they could make the game they originally intended with Magus there etc...
So BUY this game so it happens.

@Sky Render

The original team didn't make the remake. And so that's why a lot of the extra stuff feels tacked on, or like its just a bunch of 'extra' stuff. Sort of like they were looking at Chrono Trigger from afar and trying to emulate it.

To me, it feels like they just took the templates, enemies and backgrounds of Chrono Trigger and just created a bunch of fetch quests and trigger based (copied) missions that resembled the game. In other words....it was like a bunch of guys from a lesser Final Fantasy team were assembled to quickly create a bunch of side missions for one of the greatest JRPGs ever made. Oh hey, that's what happened...

It'd be interesting to know if this is another case of a good game just not being promoted by their own publishers - another Square-Enix failure to understand consumers, if it's the case.
