If it's a rhythm game,that makes sense due to final fantasy and dragon quest. Perhaps they're testing the waters? Unless it's an official sequel,then that be grand. Almost forgot,Crono could get in smash.

They've been adding Chrono Trigger Music to the Final Fantasy Rhythm game, no need to make it it's own game.

Geno from Mario RPG has yet to be in Smash. So, I don't know. Additionally I'm rather concerned about buying a PS4 just for a new Chrono game if by chance it comes out.

If it's at E3 2015 then; oh my GOD!

How would you guys feel about a complete updated 3d remake with added content (maybe in the style of how Dragon Quest 8 looked on PS2? I don't think that would be such a bad thing. It's not like we couldn't go back and just play the original if it turned out bad...

Or, I would also like a remake to be kept in the same 2d SNES style but with beautiful per-rendered backgrounds like we had in Chrono Cross; or maybe something along the lines of Odin Sphere/Dragon's Crown hand drawn art!

I spent a lot of time thinking in this video teaser.
It's complicated expect that Square announce a sequel after all frustrations that we had.

But I think that is the most obvious conclusion.

The video obviously is about something big (It's so secret I can't talk about it). And it's about an Action RPG game (Tune in to find out all about this action RPG during the show).
And this surprise have to be about Chrono Trigger (20º anniversary, Frog's Theme+sfx's).

With these 3 facts, i discard a launch to PS4 or something like that, because CT cannot be considerate a action RPG (yes, the battle system was more dinamic than others in 95, but this don't make the game an Action RPG).

So, or it is a "all-new remake", or is a sequel.

At least, i must, have and want to believe in it...  :cry:

I actually wouldn't mind an action rpg. Because Chrono Trigger had such a fast passed, fun, team based battle system. And the enemies transitioned flawlessly within the same screen. Just add in awesome magic, and a bit of strategy and we should be okay... :lol:

Isn't Brink of Time in like a month? They wouldn't just be opening a stream for it right? That would be a dick move to not make a game for this much hype. They kinda centered the video around it.

There are TONS of things it could be. And not to mention who says all 6 bleeps are the same game? There could be 6 different games. Notice KH wasn't mentioned? What if it's just Glenn in KH? I mean an Action RPG is completely possible, remember CT was suppose to be an action RPG when it was first conceived, but then development split into CT and SoM. I find it interesting that FF15 is in BETA and is probably going to be released next year without a FF16 announced yet. I find it interesting KH3 wasn't mentioned at all in that video. I still cant believe that Square would say FF7 is coming to PS4 but then just ported it... again. SE is one of the worst companies of all time. We like to believe their getting better but we can't be 100%.

The only things we know is 1 to 6 things are going to be announced (why announce any of that before E3? then you might not watch) and at least one of them is Chrono related. The song was an 8-bit-esq remix of frogs theme, which seems to be the center of the video. Could it be a game centered around Frog? Maybe a game about his descendant and his attempt to take the Mastermune and reclaim Porre from Dalton? I hope it's just Chrono Brake... I've waited too long for this.

P.S. Turn based games are obsolete. I'd rather have some sort of team based action rpg where I have double and triple attacks. And I don't want a Glenn based main hero. Plz new guy! AND TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED TO SCHALA/KID/SERGE/ALL OF EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING AFTER CROSS!!!!

If it's an action RPG, I want cheats. I need my time to react.

Post by: legaiaflame on June 15, 2015, 05:15:20 pm
I swear Square Enix' getting peoples hopes up with that Frog song in the trailer; if there is a no show I will be on the brink of rage! :o

Also, please have the art style by Akira Toriyama this time. That's one of the things that at first, drew me out of Chrono Cross. Because the art style didn't feel connected.

This is a real possibility when you add this:

I will literally explode with excitement if they announce a Chrono Trigger sequel!!!  :D But... if they threw in Frog theme music and it's something lame like FF Rythem stuff then Square can go to hell for giving me hope where I thought there was none  :twisted:

It looks like they are finally going to do the long asked for Final Fantasy VII remake.  I couldn't be happier.  The fact that they are finally remaking a classic property means that a new or reimagined Chrono is a very real possibility.  Honestly, Chrono was probably the second most asked for property after FF7 in that survey Square-Enix did a while back, and that is not something the company will ignore.

If no true Chrono update or sequel is announced this year, there is always next year.  Remember that the current generation of consoles is likely to be a long one, like generation 7 was.  Personally, I think they might be thinking about something major for the 25th anniversary in 2020.  That would give them plenty of time to make the game we've always wanted.

Made this account because, despite being a constant lurker and fan of the series for god knows how long, this hype video got me so excited for the slight possibility of anything Chrono related. I'm so hype for new Chrono music more than anything, and of course maybe some more lore explaining how Cross and Trigger align. If it is just another port to 3ds or a Cross port I might get super sad and just go amish due to the fact another game won't come out. Q.Q

Post by: TheMage on June 16, 2015, 04:29:50 am
I'm super excited about the Final Fantasy VII remake but I wish it had been Chrono Trigger! (or Final Fantasy VI - yes I know they made the android update - thing if you want to call it that)

 I'm still kind of hoping for something Chrono related- the conference is later today right? (the 16th?) Even if nothing involving CT is announced I'm hoping that Final Fantasy VII will be a huge success and they will see what their old games have to offer!

Fingers crossed for the future people! I'm hoping Frogs theme + 20 years = CT amazingness!

For the sake of my spiritual successor project, I'm kind of hoping the FF7 remake was the only big announcement. Selfish, yeah, but it'd mean the project would get more hype, as opposed to "YAY CHRONO 3! Oh... I'll play that too... I guess...."

It was only disappointing if you had any hope to begin with. For me, it was more of the same: "Square continues to ignore its license to print money by refusing to do anything with the Chrono series."

Try not to get down about the lack of a Chrono reveal.  The Final Fantasy VII remake is progress of a sort, and remember that S-E has a lot on their plate.  FF 15, Hitman, Deus Ex, Kingdom Hearts 3, Star Ocean, the ongoing FF 14, and now the new FF 7.

The way that Final Fantasy's XV and the new VII play and sell may have a direct impact on what a new Chrono game would look like.  Let's try and give them support and constructive feedback on these projects.  I, for one, still have hope.

Someone knows something about this studio Tokyo RPG Factory?
Title: Re: Guys, I think it's hype time!
Post by: TheMage on June 16, 2015, 07:29:56 pm
I too am curious about the Tokyo RPG Factory. They announced Project Setsuna: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/square-enix-announces-next-rpg-epic-project-setsun/1100-6428231/

 Stesuna: a Japanese word meaning "a moment; an instant". The word came from a Buddhist term: せつな meaning "split second,"

which made me- pray, hope it miiiight be Chrono related however its announced as a new rpg and claimed not to be a spinoff - which begs the question spin-off of what?

I'm with Lennis although I'm sad there was no Chrono news I really only hoped there would be because of the use of Frog's song - however the fact that they are remaking a classic game (FF VII) is pretty huge and if sales go good for it (which i imagine they will) than more remakes of other classics may be in the future!
Title: Re: Guys, I think it's hype time!
Post by: legaiaflame on June 16, 2015, 08:36:40 pm
Yeah, but we won't be playing the remake for another 5 years considering the scope of the original FF7...

I guess Square Enix was saving this for a company emergency. A new Chrono game would probably be their final resort...
Title: Re: Guys, I think it's hype time!
Post by: Schala Zeal on June 17, 2015, 07:06:13 am
Well that's a sigh of relief. Back to making my spiritual successor. Maybe with the final project, I can wipe my ass with the dollars/yen/bits of string SEnix refused to accept. Hah!
Title: Re: Guys, I think it's hype time!
Post by: kaionaziozeno on June 18, 2015, 04:34:33 pm
I'm trying to put my expectations down, but...
I'm really curious about that Tokyo RPG Factory.

It's a new studio (no previous works on site; the Facebook's page created in June 2015; and 7 tweets, all about E3), and the text in the homepage is "Countless adventures captivated us when we were kids. Now, it's time for us to return the favor with adventures of our own".
Well, quite suggesting.

And the question: why keep a all-new title in secret? If it's something really new, there's no reason to not talk.

Lastly, the Matsuda's interview about the studio has an intersting part:
"Our focus consists of two points: that it is a JRPG, and that it is an oudou (Authentic, decent) game. We have gathered a group of people who played, and were skillful at, the oudou RPGs that SQEX created back in the age of Super Nintendo(Super NES®), and are working with them." - Link: http://otakumode.com/news/557fd34a4ce0ae7f523ec226/


P.s.: Squenix continues using Frog's Theme in the streaming of day 2 and 3 of E3.

As an interesting tidbit, the tracks used in that E3 teaser video seem to have been taken from the 2010 Sexy Synthesizer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHFXqtPBuWA) album.

Too bad it didn't hint at what we hoped; but I'm definitely intrigued by the meaning of the word "Setsuna." I was squinting at this concept art (http://www.tokyorpgfactory.com/img/top/pc/lineup/image/l/3.jpg) from the Tokyo RPG Factory website trying to figure out whether a symbol from known Chrono governments was on the flags, but I'm not coming up with anything. The concept arts do bring to mind the post-Zeal thaw.

I've tryed find some kind of easter egg in these images, but i've couldn't. There's some things that reminds, like the image in post above.

And a new game probably will be based in Magus. His ausence in Cross and the new ending in DS version (explaining how Magus became Guile after loses his memory) creates some possibilities.

Post by: Nangbaby on June 21, 2015, 03:42:01 pm
Well, Setsuna Meioh is Sailor Pluto, the Sailor Guardian of time...so maybe it is code for a new Chrono game...

...or maybe I have the wrong Setsuna (http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/Setsuna) in mind.

Brilliant troll by Square-Enix, though.

After all, looks like something "about time".

Reminds me of an idea I came up with for a sequel. Guile and a girl named Deceit were its two main characters. It would be painfully obvious though that Deceit was in fact Schala. Guile wouldn't talk about it, but they both know who they really are, or were at least: Janus Zeal is dead in Guile's eyes. When his sister came looking, that's what he told her. After what Guile saw of Janus through the frozen flame, he decided to leave him buried. So, Schala decided to do the same.

As cool as it would be to find out Setsuna is actually a Chrono game, they announced it as a new IP. It's not Chrono and no amount of hoping will make it so.

After what Guile saw of Janus through the frozen flame, he decided to leave him buried. So, Schala decided to do the same.

An idea I've had for a sequel would work to tie all three games together... Ultimately the final villain would be Belthasar.  My idea rests on the idea that the first two games (and really, more Cross than Trigger) was about Belthasar's machinations to ensure the defeat of Lavos fully and completely, and in this third game, he would be completely gone and not a concern any longer.  But can you imagine what being able to have the power and intelligence to engineer things in a manner such as Belthasar had?

That's about as close to absolute power as one gets, and you know what they say about absolute power corrupting absolutely.

And while it would be that Belthasar started off with good intentions (CT) by the time Chrono Cross rolled around and all his plans started unfolding and he got the taste of manipulating and ultimately controlling not only people's individual lives but time and space/dimensions as well?  That became a taste of power he wasn't keen to let go of.

From here, I've had a few competing ideas, but my favorite would involve his return to Chronopolis in the future and him being the master/boss Belthasar that then coordinates with his younger selves in various eras in order to control/manipulate things from all sides, which would see the party in Chrono 3 (likely consisting primarily of a few new characters, sprinkled with party members from the two previous games that you'd pick up during the course of the game) having an opportunity to travel through most of the eras of the previous games (namely, 12,000bc, 1000ad, and 2300ad) but finally getting to truly explore and experience 2300ad in its non lavos destroyed form (especially and particularly Chronopolis).  Some measure of dimension/timeline hopping as well would be good, and a good way to tie into the plots of Chrono Cross (although understanding that the dimensions/timelines were merged in Chrono Cross, it would take perhaps examining the smaller theme of the game of the "dying timelines" or the timelines that were erased or were being erased by the actions of the party in CT to tie that in... and an opportunity to hop into the timeline that Dinopolis came from would be very interesting as well, and a chance to pick up a Reptite as a party member).

Overall though, it may not be perfect, but I think it'd be a fantastic way to tie in all three games into a cohesive narrative, and be an interesting, unexpected, but completely sensible twist in ultimately making Belthasar the biggest and most powerful threat of the series.  Afterall, he may not be the man who physically defeated Lavos, but for all intents and purposes, he can be viewed as the man who overcame this being.

I hope Geno steps it up in another game. He was always my fav guy when it came to Mario RPG..  thats something they never thought of doing again.. making a Mario RPG 2.  Even though it only went to level 30 it was still a great game.

I heard from that they done this before with Chrono Triggers music at one other event and no Chrono trigger was created. But it is their 20th aniversary.. so I am really hoping for the exact CT game just in 3d! And maybe a few new bosses would be great! Chrono Cross was a good game and at the ending of Chrono Cross you seen the 3 spirits of the original characters ...Chrono/Marle/Lucca, I hope they just remake it so Chrono and everyone is back and kinda push Chrono Cross to the side!  **Idea... the seed of lavos that was left behind after they defeated lavos, more evolved to human form. Possibly a new rival of Chrono lol Never would happen but would be cool :D

News about Setsuna: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/new-square-enix-rpg-project-setsuna-will-be-themed/1100-6429083/

I keep wondering that is really wierd a new project be treated so secretly.
The game will be released in next year and there's no information about it?

And the trilogy talks... suspicious...

But Sadness will be THE word of this game. In a way or another.

- if you don't have a browser that does rough translations there are several commenters connecting it to Chrono Trigger. Something about a gear from a clock and setsuna meaning time- (except now we know it doesn't) (sob)  How its announcement is 'close' to the 20th anniversary of CT, the art style, Frog's theme and some other stuff I can't make out.

This guy made an interesting post about it:

Those links above are really interesting.

By the way, "Tokyo RPG Factory" is a weird name.
Is just another conspiracy theory, but can be a anagram, and TRF can be just a fake studio:
S -> T
Q -> R
E -> F
X -> Y

First look of the game called Setsuna. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlykTi7QAeo)

While I personally don't believe it could be related to the Chrono franchise, I do feel it's at least borrowing from it. That's an X-Strike if I've ever seen one. Plus, the battle system seems very similar to Trigger's: ATB, 3 characters, HP and AP/MP bar. I definitely don't mind the return to such a system.

(It's been so long I've forgotten how to embed videos...)

I saw that. And I start to believe that Setsuna it's just Setsuna (although there is a really X-Strike in video).

But, the "secret" still there, on 9/19, 12:30pm. My last hope.

Don't get too excited.

GREE announced a game for mobile devices called “Another Eden”.
The scenario writer and the sound creator of Chrono Trigger are involved (Masato Kato & Yasunori Mitsuda)

*eye twitch*

The fact that the app game Kato and Mitsuda are working on is a time traveling game! *twitch* *twitch* Just... PLEASE KATO. Make it amazing and in the Chronoverse before I implode.

Edit: there's even a red headed character and a cat. *twitch*

We are being trolled.

Maybe once these 3 guys are done with their current projects? maybe...

I really didn't like it...

Sakaguchi returning to Square
by Colonel Angus
Published on 04-01-2015 12:47 AM
 
Japanese gaming site, Nishibun has reported that former Square Executive Vice President, Hironobu Sakaguchi, the man who was responsible for bringing to the world such great video game series as Final Fantasy and Chrono, is about to return to the company. No official title has been given, but it’s rumored that he will return to produce three more games before he officially retires from the gaming industry.
 
The biggest (and only confirmed) game on that list is the next game in the Chrono series. Neither name nor storyline has been revealed, just that it will tie up all the loose ends from the first two games. Will Magus finally reunite with his long lost sister? Will Crono finally speak?
 
“We will tie up elements from both games,” an unnamed source told Nishibun. “You can expect to see both Crono and Serge united to fight the ultimate force. It’s all really going to be exciting, but I can’t say anymore on it than that.” :o :o :roll:

I wouldn't be so dismissive of that article.  It's probably the best news Chrono fans have gotten in years.  Since Final Fantasy VII Remake is already in the works, and remakes/remasters in general are one of the most popular trends in the industry right now, I think a return of Chrono is not only likely, it is all but assured.  The only real question is what form a new Chrono will take.

A reimagining/retelling? That's also a trend... :P

I'm VERY afraid about how a retelling would take form... Since now games in general have far more adult thematics, and Chrono Trigger is a bit "innocent" at glance, it could be worse... or not (if CronoxLuccaxMarle have a chance to be best developed in that retelling :P )

I really don't think a retelling would stray too far from the epic fairy tale treatment of the original, since that is what made Chrono popular in the first place.  You don't have to worry about excessive language, gratuitous violence, or Game of Thrones-style sex and drama if that's what you're talking about.  Square-Enix wouldn't be looking for an "M" rating here.

This is the first time that a directly association between CT and Setsuna happened?

Well, looks similar in many ways. I hope that it can be a good game.

I'm still not getting my hopes up, but Chrono Trigger gets name-dropped a few times here:

http://na.square-enix.com/us/blog/first-look-live-stream-i-am-setsuna

I won't be able to catch the stream, however. Hopefully someone else can watch it and give us their thoughts afterward.

Bringing back this topic to say: Another hype time, or just a bait?

Google-Translating:
Brazilian Amazon lists in its catalog a probable new game of the series Chrono Trigger (and soon it goes away)

Last Monday (06/03) there was a big uproar among gamers on Twitter because a Twitter user named @FrederFusca (who later deleted his account) was accessing the Amazon site when he came across a game of gray cover listed in your search. The item listed as "Chrono Trigger 2: Tales of Velava" would be a sequel to the first game in the Chrono series, this time the serial would arrive on the Nintendo 3DS.

The user was surprised and soon tweeted about what he had just seen, few believed, but using advanced search tools on the site, really could find the game listed. After a brief rebound, the game disappeared from the catalog of the online store, which led all of us to believe that a leak had actually occurred and that the game should be announced next Monday (06/10), the day of the Square Enix conference at E3 2019.

The user deactivated his account on Twitter soon after, probably due to legal problems he could face, we can not know.

Why would the OP be in legal trouble if he found it on Amazon's site? Wouldn't that have been a mistake on Amazon's part, or would it have been because he was hacking/data mining the site? Doesn't make sense why s/he would simply delete the account as a result of finding this info.

I am calling BS on this.

1.) The reasons above.
2.) The naming standard sounds odd.
3.) The 3DS is nearly dead as a console; it is on it's last legs, as Nintendo and most developers have moved on to the Switch. I would be surprised to see it on the 3DS.

Edit: A quick google search reveals only a single video for this... the same video that gives that info. :(

I'm with you - seems like bull.  Mainly for your 3rd reason.  There's no way a game like Trigger would receive a new entry on a handheld platform before it receives an entry on a main console. I could see the Swtich, I could even see them releasing something on the 3DS alongside a main entry (Like FFXV did with their mobile game).
