Chrono Break Activism/Petition
« on: June 20, 2004, 10:33:59 pm »
Square-Enix needs to wake up.

A press release from the merger of the two corporations stated that they want Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, and Dragon Quest to be the pillars of the newly formed Square-Enix.

They have done Chrono fans a disservice by letting Chrono Break stagnate on the back-burner, and they've let it die from lack of attention.

I have started a movement.  I, with the help of LiveMarch.com, have created a "march" against Square-Enix to let them know that fans want another Chrono game.

This is not just a petition.  Every person who decides that they wish to support the movement is to call Kyoko┬ Yamashita, the Marketing Communications Manager of Square-Enix, and let her know that we want another installment of the Chrono series.  If we have numerous amounts of people join the movement, we can get publicized in media outlets all over the United States and hopefully gain the attention of Square-Enix.

I know it seems far-fetched, but we just need support, and lots of it.  Tell your friends, family, everyone you know.  If they like Chrono, then get them to sign up and support this.  This can definately be big, and I need every fan, and I mean every fan to help.  Just sign up and when the clock hits 12:00 hrs, call her and let her know what we want.

I designed it this way so that we can keep the barrage going for several hours, and maybe do a wrap up at the end.

The site is here: http://www.livemarch.com/marchHome.jsp?marchID=85

Please join up and help the Chrono Revolution!

AND REMEMBER: commence calling at 12:00 hrs remaining.  This is in the Pacific timezone, so take that into consideration as well.

~AX~

Yea I would love for Chrono Break to come out.  But I dunno, most of the FF's have different worlds and characters, its easy to make them the pillar of the new company.  But the Chrono series is so...advanced i think is the word.  complicated is a better word.  I really can't see more that 4 games ( besides RD ) being in the series.  I mean, how many different ways can you fight Lavos?  I don't want to be fighting  the "dimension destroyer" in "Chrono Slide" the 8th installment in the series.  Hopefully Square-Enix will make Chrono Break and a fourth game, but we have to be realistic, after those two games, it will probably end.  They cannot just keep introducing new villians, and I'm glad that Lavos had something to do with what was going on in CC.  I liked DBZ anime but the whole "this guy is the most powerful villian in the universe...but wait!  this guy who nobody has ever mentioned but apparently knew about is even more powerful!! oh yea! there are these dark dragon ball things..."  so yea, I really dont want to hear this:  
Quote from: Belthasar
Jared, because of the actions of Marc and Lucy before you, Jeff and Alicia before them, Henry and Celine before them, Clark and Gabriella before them, Aaron and Bethany before them, Serge and Kid before them, and Crono and Marle before them, a new threat has emerged!  He was born under the Northern Ruins in Zenan, he can harness enough elemental power to destroy the world!  You must stop him by going into this dimension and then going 48 years into the past.  Use my new space-time egg!
 so yea, yay Chrono, but it won't last forever without getting old or being 'accidentally' ruined.

FF XII story will be related to the world of FF tactics and vagrant Story, so theres alway the chance of Another Chrono game came under the Final Fantasy  label. Sure with this tactic, Square can use any universe of previows games and sell more tha the originals series.
Could you imagine?: Final Fantasy XIII -Chrono Brake  or  Final Fantasy XIII -Chrono Voyager   :shock:

I don't think you realize how, on a really good run, creative the folks at Square can be, Faulce. But anyway, there is always the option of pulling a Final Fantasy and generating a new, separate setting with new conflict that doesn't seem so tired. After all, FF is almost always the same old formula, but few people complain because of its presentation.

I understand what you mean, but I think that Square-Enix wanted those games to be the pillars of their corporation because of sales.

I mean Kingdom Hearts is one game, so far anyway, and they decide to make that a big deal?  That game is nothing compared to either Chrono game (IMO anyway).

So I'm not saying I want infinite games involving the Chrono universe, just that the previous games, along with any new games deserve a spotlight, don't you think.

I don't see many communities like here at Chrono Compendium for other games, so obviously we deserve a third game, don't we?  I mean to take it to level you guys have, really means something.  It says something about fans of the Chrono series.  I think it's about time we got some fanservice, don't you think?

Square Enix doesn't need to do a damn thing. Mitsuda no longer works for them, and as far as I can tell, neither does Kato. I don't care what company makes Chrono Break, and if it does a good job of clearing everything up, and is a solid game, I don't care if it's the last in the series. But I want it made by Kato, regardless of the company, and music by Mitsuda. Does anyone know who has the rights to the characters, etc? It doesn't have to be S-E people, only Kato. This petition will only agrivate S-E. How does that help?

And Faulce, earlier today I was considering implementing a policy of arbitrarily deleting any double-posts I came across, to keep things tidy, but given how touchy people at OCR are about their postcounts, I didn't know how well it would go over. Guess I do now.  :D

Last I heard Kato is a free agent and deals can be worked out with him so that he can work on Chrono Break.

Mitsuda has stated that he eargerly awaits the day that he can work on another Chrono game.  I think he even shared some aggrivation that Square-Enix didn't have any intrest in another Chrono game anytime soon.

I'm not sure on Kato, but 100% positive that Mitsuda wants another Chrono game so he can work on it.

~AX~

A note:  Square Enix, and the world in general, does not "owe" us anything.

I've already heard your piece on the subject Ybrik.  I know they don't owe us anything, but I didn't say "owe", I said deserved.  They're two different concepts.  Fanservice is completely up to the company, but we aren't recieving any.

If you don't think it's possible because fans of an obscure series like Earthbound couldn't do it, that's fine.

I think differently about the Chrono fans, I know they can do it.

Yeah, this totally makes sense! They don't currently have the proper talent for it, not to mention the resolve, or the time & commitment...So let's make a petition saying we want a new Chrono game anyways! Surely, due to our sheer numbers, they will be forced to make it for us!

Because, as we all know, that's the best way to get the best out of our game producers!

Can you say, JACKHOLES?!?

Why pump out another lackluster game quickly? You n00bs know how long we waited between Trigger/Radical & Cross? Go back to your hole!

Yeah, that's right, I said HOLE!!! As in JACKHOLE!

Okay, actually, I don't know why I said hole...I think it has something to do with Happy Gilmore or something...Maybe...

Five years. And if you plan on using that to defend an anti-petition argument, well, you probably ought to consider that it's less than one more year, probably to be spent on development in the case of an actual game being made, before we hit five years since Cross.  :wink:

But anyway... this shouldn't be in the Analysis forum. Ought to be moved to GenDisc.

I was just saying that long waits happen and that we shouldn't hurry them up just because we can't wait and that we simply "must" have it out "right now".

Noted, and moved.

V_Translanka, calm down.

ArgonX, I'm posting at OCR right now with my further thoughts on this matter.  But my point with the bit about owing/deserving...I'm really sorry, but from the way you said "obviously we deserve a third game" made it seem like you didn't know the difference between the two concepts you claim to understand.  Saying we deserve another game implies an obligation on the part of the company to deliver, at least to me.  Sorry if I misunderstood.  Not trying to make any enemies here.  So maybe you need to calm down too.

Don't get me wrong.  I would like to see the series have a long run, but I fear that it will become tired or that the plot will fall apart coughmetalgearsolid2cough.  If the Chrono series became the next FF, im fine with that.  Technically, CC took place in a "different" world that CT.  Nothing from the previous game save a part in Leene Square and Lucca's house were accessible in CC, but location isnt really what I'm worried about.  Now if they "pulled a Final Fantasy" as chronotriggerfreak said above, and made a whole new world with a whole new conflict but similar (though different would be cool) time traveling and/or dimension crossing concepts, I would be fine with a bunch of games in the series.  So yea, I would love to see 10 more games, I just dont want the series to be ruined.

I have a rule on things like this...a personal philosophy.

If the chances are not good for a good sequel, I would still like to see something. I would not care if Chrono Break is utter crap; it would be expanding upon the series, and it would give us a new area to delve into.

Trigger and Cross have their own worth. An interloping game cannot subtract from those games. It can tarnish the name of the Chrono series, but I can live with that.
