Chrono Confusion: Why Have Sony and Square Failed to Produce a Worthy Sequel to the Popular Series?

Considering the enormous success of Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross, why have Square and Sony elected to keep the franchise silent? (Chrono Trigger , Retro)

Because the team that did the Chrono games isn't together anymore? Also, the same reason Square has been reluctant to remake FF VII... The fact that they're scared of messing it up, so they don't even bother trying. Imagine the amount of hate they would get if they screwed something like a Chrono game up, or an FFVII remake.

I doubt Square Enix is afraid of messing up a FF VII remake. All they would have to do is get the right team to do it. Just give it to the devs that worked on Crisis Core.

Yeah, if you don't make a sequel for a highly anticipated game, I'm not entirely sure what you make a sequel for.

Chrono was a team consisting of mixed Square & Enix dev's that formed together to make this game.

After that they continued on with their lives.

Shows what true talent and good leadership can accomplish though when everyone is on the same page.

Cause they hate giving fans what they want, they'd make to much money! Its the only explanation.

I haven't heard that many people asking for a continuation of the Chrono games. These games are like forgotten gems.

But why do they keep re-releasing Chrono Trigger then? I think they're aware of the games' popularity.

Because Square Enix is incompetent.

They dont like money why else would they not put BBS and Crisis core on the Vita store.

Unfortunately you are 100% correct...

Umm just play chrono trigger for the DS dont worry I wasnt one of the people that pushed disagree just play it! Even if its not the DS version I wont say OTHER methods but just get a legit copy you will treasure that cartridge or disk.

Hey, I'm right there with you. I couldn't even tell you what the plot of Cross was, but I can recall the entire plot of Chrono Trigger beat by beat. It was a much better game. The sequel was disappointing.

@Lord Maim: I played Chrono Cross, and about 15 hours into the game, I got bored and never played it again. If there comes an HD remake of the game, then I might give it another try. But Chrono Cross was not worth my time.

I just really hope the SE would remake Chrono Cross. But of course I doubt it would happen since SE don't listen to their fanbase

They should make a remake of those games, they keep everything story and gameplay wise, those games only need a huge graphical notch up, put them in a 3D environment and there you go, RPG golden. I loved both Chrono title, the music is so great in them.

Don't see the appeal of Chrono Trigger. I got the DS version and didn't see where the hype was coming from.

The right time to play any game is during the gen it is released when you are not used to modern developments and changes in the industry. Chrono Trigger was ground breaking when it was released in 1995 on SNES. I played it on PSOne in 2001 and still loved it The soundtrack was amazing, the multiple endings, the story, the secret party member, the time travelling, effect of time travel on treasures found and the characters were all amazing. It is understanable if you do not find anything special with the game just like many people do not find anything special about LoZ Ocarina of Time when playing it for the first time today even though it is regarded one of the best games ever.
