After Six Years, Trailer For Cancelled ‘Cry On’ Released

It has been six years since it was announced the Xbox 360 exclusive Cry On, the Mistwalker and Cavia joint project, was cancelled, so what better time to release a trailer for the game than now? Mistwalker founder, Hironobu Sakaguchi, best known for creating the Final Fantasy series, has posted a 480p CG trailer for the game on his personal channel.

Looks really interesting. Maybe there's a chance it can be revived

Sakaguchi deserves better and bigger projects and shouldn't be stuck making mobile games for a living.

He should return to Square Enix and stop being stubborn and forget his pride (he left voluntarily because of Wada and Spirits within bombing, he should return)

It was because of a falling with Sony/Playstation. he hates Ken. The former president of SOE. Thats why his games were on the XBOX and Wii,he refused to release on the Playstation. Funny thing is,that the RPG fanbase is on the Playstation. His games were loved by the critics but panned on the systems. Thats why he went mobile. Also I think CRY ON is exclusive to Nintendo or MS. Not really sure.

he shouldnt have started that beef with sony.period.
he's tried both nintendo and ms and failed miserably relative to his talent.
i mean for god's sake
you dont make a game with Sakaguchi, Uematsu and Akira Toriyama in the same team and live to see it bomb

They should continue this over to the xbox one, the game has substance!!!

Oh man! MS needs to put some cash into this and make it happen on the X1.

Its a shame Lost Odyessey didnt perform well financially. It was the closest thing we've had to a true final fantasy game since FFX (Uematsu music, Sakaguchi story, world map, airships, MULTIPLE DISCS!). It's "disappointing" sales are the reason Mistwalker had to start concentrating on smaller projects since. Unfortunately the MS exclusivity is partly what killed it, had it been multiplatform it may have performed a lot better. Same goes for Blue Dragon.

Heres hoping this gen both consoles get graced with a grand sakaguchi/uematsu JRPG that isn't bastardized by western influences.

MS helped get the company off the ground and funded Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey. Even if MS advertised them more, I think they still wouldn't have done great.

" Even if MS advertised them more, I think they still wouldn't have done great."

Yeah, majority of Xbox's userbase wasn't exactly fond of JRPGs, like I said, being stuck on that console doomed them.

Playstation was were final fantasy found world wide notoriety (yes I'm aware it was popular on snes but, honestly, nowhere near as popular as it was after FF7 launched) and I think they would have stood a much better chance if they also were able to release on that platform and reach their old fanbase who were waiting for the next big "final fantasy". This was of course before FF went multiplat and got turned into a linear action rpg that divided the FF fanbase, so ps3 owners were dying for a sakaguchi flavoured JRPG in the meantime, maybe even more so after FF13 turned in to a shadow of its former self.

Mistwalkers games would've done well as Multiplats. Shame :(

Blue Dragon is a decent game but nothing outstanding.

We need a lost odyssey 2.

Awww, this looked really promising... That's a real shame it got cancelled...

The girl looks like Elena from Pandora's Tower. Would have been cool to see this cancelled title in action.
