Chrono characters appearing in a fighting game?! YES!
« on: March 21, 2008, 06:53:51 pm »
Ladies and gentlemen, I have caught wind of something that I think Chrono series fans everywhere will be interested in. I'm not entirely sure of the details (because I can't read Spanish), but there is a fighting game currently in development featuring a truly VAST array of characters, including several Chrono characters! The name of the game is Card Sagas Wars, and they're already far enough along in development to have a trailer with actual in-game footage. Click HERE for their website and HERE for the trailer video!

Here's the Chrono characters currently listed on their site's gallery as being playable:


CLICK HERE to see the character list in its entirety. These game designers are crazy ambitious!! :D Plus there's a separate gallery, the "red cards", specifically for monsters. With any luck some old school baddies like Zombor, Heckran, and either a Lavos Spawn or the terrible Lavos himself might end up joining the list!

Oh. My.

Good Friday indeed.

Specter, HUUUUUUUGE thanks.

EDIT: Shoot, it's not an official game, is it? Do you happen to know if this was done by the same folks who did Valkyrie Fight Tag?

EDIT: Know what this means everyone? A Xenogears or Valkyrie Profile type fangame with Chrono Cross and Final Fantasy, among other, characters, is going to be doable. Hm, hm, hm...HA HA HA HA HA!! Ahem. That's IF the sprite sheets are ever released. Quizas seria posible convencerlos a entregar los sprites al "Spriter's Resource."

EDIT: I've got this posted in GameFAQs' Chrono Trigger section. You're credited with the info, Specter. Have you let any of the other Chrono boards know about this?

This is the first and only Chrono forum I've told about this. And a reference to The Spriter's Resource, eh? Most interesting...

Whoops, haha, that reference to the Spriter's Resource is my own -- I was musing in Spanish as to whether or not the spriters would be willing to release their fan-made goodness. My bad.

I'm going to spread around word about this. It's too freaking awesome to be known only by Spanish-speaking peoples.

EDIT: The seeds of knowledge have been dispersed in the four winds, and have found their way to GameFAQs' CT and CC boards, ChronoShock, and Chrono Crisis' CT board.

There's a video Trailer for this game.  It shows crono for about 6 seconds doing his battle stance.  It looks stunning.

Indeed so, Justin. For the curious, you can find a link to a YouTube copy of that video trailer in my first post. Chrono shows up at around 1 minute 30 seconds into the video; watch for him in the lower right corner.

Whoever's in charge of CrystalTechStudios may have submitted some of the sprites used in the project:
http://www.crystaltechstudios.com/sprites.html

Notice Celes and Fei on that page -- I think they're the very same sprites used in-game for Card Sagas Wars. I think several others from that page made it into the game as well.

This is just awesome.

Their updates page (3/15/08) says they've got all the art done and are in bugtesting mode right now. They project having a demo available within a few weeks.

Hey, not all the Chrono characters are listed in your post, Specter. This is okay though, I'm gonna have fun looking through this even without these characters in. Dang..

During a discussion at the Chrono Crisis forums we've learned that not *all* 900 of those characters are going to be playable, darn! Only 4 characters are going to be playable for the beta demo (KOS-MOS, MegamanX, Cloud, and Link), but the list will be expanded gradually as time goes on. The key is, how is the spriting team going to decide which characters to complete?

We know that Crono is playable judging from the preview video they have, though.

What I'm most thrilled about is the existence of the sprites themselves. They could probably be ported into Xenogears, Valkyrie Profile, the Tales games, etc., (hell, maybe even Dragon Force) for some good ol' RPG action. They may or may not release the sprite sheets -- but as with any other game, there must no doubt be a way to rip them. Those sprites are just *too* beautiful to pass up, though I wouldn't submit them to the Spriters' Resource out of courtesy (that site specializes specifically in official or self-made sprites). Here's to hoping they just release the sprites so I can stop worrying about moral dilemmas.

Damn well I hope that Magus and Frog make it in as well.

Hi, i'm one of the creators of the game.

I'd like to clarify that not all the Chrono cast will be playable.. sorry. Crono will be the representative of Chrono Trigger, but the other allies will make an apparence in Crono's movements. Kid might be in too, she's my favourite from Chrono Cross.
