Former producer and senior manager of Square Enix, Takashi Tokita, said that he's interested in doing a remake of Chrono Trigger.
I honestly would love an HD polish with an updated overlay of super high rez lighting effects and added cool stuff. Sort of like FF1/2 on PSP
they can just use the engine of DQ11 https://youtu.be/03KNMuKhok...
A CT HD Remaster would be awesome.
Oh man, I hope so. Give it to the studio that handled I am Setsuna, they seem to have replicated parts of the charm of Chrono Trigger. Just revamp the sound and graphics, add some DLC for additional story arc, but don't touch the actual story.
Well, I Am Setsuna is the spiritual successor to Chrono Trigger, and was created by the same people who worked on all those old, amazing JRPGs, but a remake seems unlikely considering they just made I Am Setsuna instead of a Chrono Trigger remake or another sequel because Square Enix is involved in I Am Setsuna's development. On the topic of Chrono Trigger, there is another game for PS4/Vita that is releasing soon called 'Cosmic Star Heroine' that looks and plays just like Chrono Trigger. It is only 15 bucks and comes out in June or July I believe. If you love Chrono Trigger like I do, then you should definitely have a looksie. On the topic of your comment regarding a "revamp/additional DLC", I believe that would be pretty awesome (even though Chrono Trigger is already perfect), but I think that if anyone tried touching that game, they would feel it necessary to ruin it by completely changing everything and ruining it. Unless of course Tokyo JRPGS Factory were to have a go at it (they are the studio making I Am Setsuna).
I Am Setsuna being made has no impact on the likelyhood of a Chrono Trigger remaster. Also, as much as I love Chrono Trigger it isn't perfect (it's a 9.9 because of nitpicks). Too many recycled assets is the number one issue, but it has also aged (though gracefully, cracks show) in several ways, notably sound effects. A remaster is perfect for it. Voice acting, orchestral soundtrack, HD anime graphic done by Akira Toriyama, ect, it would be the definitive version! I hope it comes soon. Also, a Chrono Cross remake and finally Chrono Break, please.
Well I've beaten this game about 20 times and would gladly pay for it again and do it all over again
a remaster or a new game would be awesome news
I'd be ok with this if it isn't episodic.
Chrono Trigger has much less cutscenes and exposition then FFVII so I think that's out of the question.
Not sure I agree. If we are talking about wishful thinking....the sure, day 1 the whole game, but if Square doesn't have such money for such a vast remake, I'd rather get a quality remake over time, then a rushed remake just to have you get it in 1 buy. At the end of the day, its not as if it won't be repacked anyway as a full thing. Either way....you wait anyway. I'd rather have a quality game with a good amount of time in development ,if that means episodic, then so be it. No one needs to buy it in that format either, you can wait for the final repackaging even if its episodic, but like I stated...you still wait in the end anyway. Why get less quality faster?
I wouldn't be against episodic but it just wouldn't be ideal. I will take Chrono in any way I can get it, though.
Please yes. GOAT. Love this game
Sure wouldn't be a bad idea.
That'd be awesome to be a full 3D remake and if they do this then they'd have no excuse to give us Final Fantasy 6!
Didn't get to play this the first time around. I would love to try this.
It's on PSN and DS. DS being the best version.
No. This is a stupid, stupid idea. They can literally not improve on it. Chrono trigger is damn near perfect, marking the high point of the subgenre like 20 years after it's release. There is next to nothing that could be changed that would be a change for the better, and even if there was something it would still serve to piss everyone off just by being different. It's a once in a lifetime miracle game created by a perfect storm of circumstance. It cannot be recreated, don't even try.
Game was not that great... slow start could not get into it one day I'll try it again.
The only thing that is slow must be your attention span. No offense, but the beginning is not THAT slow, if you play 15 minutes then it gets going. The festival in the beginning is the only part that is "slow", and it takes like 10 to 1t minutes to finish up and get your adventure going. That's just like any other JRPGS though..
The intro lasts less than half an hour. Many (really good) JRPGs have intros that last 2 or 3 hours.
Slow start? Just exactly how long did you play this game?
I would like to see you play SMT series then because those game take a few hours for the game to really begin.
Was boreing too me it's my opinion like I said I'll give it another shot if they make a remake
you can keep the game intact but improve the visuals
That isn't a remake. What is there even to improve? The art style was designed to work with the techniques of the time instead of being limited by them, it isn't likely to translate to anything else very well. Also, maybe replay it. It still looks good, because 2d sprites in general age really well.
let's get real, the game doesn't look good on a widescreen hd tv. they could put in some effort and make it look beautiful for todays times while still keeping the integrity of the game. not sure what your problem is with tweaking the visuals. they do it with movies or are you going to suggest we bring out our old vhs tapes?
I like the crispy pixels of the original. If they were to remake it, I'd like the graphics to be pretty textured and detailed, rather than having that smooth ps2-look that a game like, say, I Am Setsuna has. In other words, I'd want a remake to be pretty up to date. Also, I'm not likely to play the original again for a while, because I've played it several times, but I'd definitely play a remake in a heartbeat. More importantly though, I think a remake could lead, finally, to Chrono 3.
We've already had a remake of Chrono Trigger on the DS. I'd prefer of Square Enix to finally port FFXII to modern platforms.
That isn't a remake.....
Yes it is
Not sure I would call it a remake as much as a enhanced port. The core game is untouched but added features and new translation. They didn't re do the pixel art or anything.
Many remakes have added features but not a change to the core gameplay. In other news we finally got FFXII HD announced today
Why not just make a new game of it rather than a remake ?
With SE today? No thanks. Chrono Hallway bad ARPG combat with everyone wearing black. Edgy
* I've still yet to play Chrono Trigger or Chrono Cross yet. I need to do that eventually.
Make sure you get the DS version. It is the best version.
One of my favorite games ever, Chrono Trigger already is perfect.
just yes please yes
If this would be remade in 3D it would have to be in the style of say the latest DQ games? But don't change anything in terms of story or gameplay. It's perfect.
I don't trust SE with it these days. They will try and make it action heavy and probably replace the art with Nomura's dull crap of black and belts and zippers. Then make it a 10 episode game or something you need to be online to play. If they contracted Mistwalker or heck even Monolith (some CT in XB series since some of the same talent) then yeah.
