So wild to see new Chrono Cross content in like...ever!

I also noticed that it releases December 9th, which is the same day that the Video Game Awards (VGA) air - that's where/when the Chrono Cross Remastered is rumored to be announced...

O Joined in 2015 and have only one post, about the Brazilian Portuguese translation. Now I'm back heh. There is another trailer with voice acting for Harle, Serge and Kid. I fearful that this is it, just a collab. At the same time... they wouldn't hire voice actors and produce these beautiful cell shading renditions just for this collab, right? ... right?

Trailer with voices of Harle, Serge and Kid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxUo4j1rIOM

PS.: wtf are these verification questions?

Just found an Easter Egg. If you click the pocket watch on the announcement page, it takes you to a retro version of the page, as it might have looked back in 2000:

Apparently, they will:

Don't miss out on the in-game voice acting just for this crossover event.

Sad face...

I'm not a fan of the voice acting. I know everybody has their own headcanon of what the characters sound like, but Kid sounds too old and Harle's accent is so ridiculously over-the-top that she's almost impossible to understand. Oddly enough, Serge sounds okay.

If there is indeed going to be a Chrono Cross revival and it has voice acting, I hope they get a different actress for Kid and also have her portray Harle, but tone down the accent a couple dozen notches.

That is amazing. And frighteningly accurate. I don't remember the last time I saw a Guestbook or site counter!  :lol:

I initially thought Another Eden would be a decent game. Boy was I wrong. And as I played it, I saw it for what it really is: a wall against normal progression. And the tools to get over that wall require real money or ridiculous amounts of invested time. I got to a point where I couldn't progress because I had no characters with the abilities I needed to win. My only choice was to pay real money "for a chance" "a chance" to get what I needed, or level up my current characters for 4 to 5 hours so they're overpowered. And what's worse is: In this game you have no healing items in battle.

And imagine spending real money and still not getting what you need! Because it's all #$%$ing random!

At that point I began to despise the game and I was completely out!

So, be warned...

Man, I'm so exited about this.

I started playing Another Eden like a month ago and there were so many references to Chrono Trigger and Cross, but I never thought they would actually do this.

We need to rip literally everything possible when this comes out. Screenshots, screenrips, audio rips if there are Cross songs, documenting the dialogue and script...this is Kato's chance to change or reinforce the canon of Cross.

I guess the biggest thing would be somehow ripping the AE ROM once it's been updated to have the Cross content.

Don't remember how easy the PC version can be ripped, but if it's like the script files then it might not be that much of a problem.

EDIT: An introductory video to Serge:

I was left in doubt regarding the collab: does that mean that the connection between Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross got retconned?

The news i read was kinda insinuating that, if a CC remake gets in the way, they could "redo" the connections with Chrono Trigger to make it tie with Another Eden instead.

Honestly i never read anything similar happening even in other forms of media.

While no doubt they might try to add Another Eden tie-ins, I doubt they'd really try to excise the Chrono Trigger elements. Where did you read that?

In other news, the collab to be featured on this week's Famitsu:
