with the Chrono Trigger - Perfect Bible out, maybe the answer to the Is the new ending canonical? can be answered,

let's hope there's an interview with Kato about the new dungeons and new ending, and let's hope someone buy's this and give us a translation (please if you will!)

i want to know what was the purpose of the Lost Sanctum, why was it opened when the Black Omen first appeared?

the only thing that was new for me is knowing that a Nu might really have eternal life (i thought the Nu's from various timelines where not the same, but this event showed that some of the nu's we encounter throughout the game can be one and the same, and this supports the all begins and ends with nu quote, nothing new i guess)

and i really want to know what was purpose of assimilating the Crono, Marle and Lucca shades, they did power up after getting them,

and i really want to know how the new ending played out, my a theory that the party was present or the b theory with just Magus, i think Mr. Zeality has a good point about it happening with just Magus but we need to wait for the official statement (if there is one)

so let's hope a Masato Kato interview is present in the Chrono Trigger - Perfect Bible!

in regards to my A theory (read my previous post in page 7), when Magus said that there are as many worlds as there are potentialities, i was thinking that parallel worlds only existed in 1010 AD when Schala splitted the world for Serge, but i remembered Dinopolis.

1st question, Did Schala have anything to do with the creation of the Reptite Dimension? (where Reptites ruled the world) or did it already exist even before she splitted the World (Home and Another)

if Schala didn't have anything to do with it, that supports Future Magus' statement "there are as many worlds as there are potentialities"

and 2nd question, is Radical Dreamers canon (that it did happen in another dimension) or was it really just an Easter Egg?

because if Schala didn't have anything to do with Dinopolis and Radical Dreamers is canon

we have:

Chrono Trigger (Magus Alive) > Radical Dreamers dimension

Chrono Trigger (Magus Alive) (where the Future Magus you see in DBT came from) > Chrono Cross dimension

Chrono Trigger (Magus Dead killed by Glenn) Dimension

Reptite Dimension


All this dimensions only connect to one Time's Eclipse or DBT (we still don't know the exact nature of this place but i speculate it is connected to all dimensions)

this supports Magus statement: Whether that is the future of the world from which you've come, i do not know (we still don't know how wise this Magus or how old he is but he knows of the existence of parallel worlds)

(this is just theory folks)

please answer my above questions please

And back to Magus II: He says "we've defeated..." in the english version but does he say that in the japanese version or something more like "he was defeated...".

This. Anyone that knows japanese could offer a translation of that japanese quote?

Can anyone tell me if my text dump attempt is right? It looks about the same as in-game, but I'm not sure.

This should be the Japanese name for the Dragon Tear in CTDS.

I checked my copy of the game and yeah, this seems to be the Japanese equivalent.  It means "Dragon Earring" :/

Thanks! I was wondering since I got "Dragon pierce" from Google translate and a romanizing website seemed to support it. Probably not the same as Chrono Cross's "Dragon Tear" then.

Nope, definitely two different things.  Talk about a confusing rename.

Literally it says "doragon piasu" which is katakana English for 'dragon pierce', but a "pierce" in Japanese, for whatever reason, is an earring.  One of the more mysterious Japanese loanwords...

Ugh, did Tom Slattery even play Chrono Cross? Was Richard Honeywood consulted at any point during any of this?

I guess it wasn't that strange in the time, Magus himself wears earrings

Heheh yeah that's true. Would be funny to see him with earrings. But yeah it's more for gameplay then anything else, there's loads more equipment that don't fit certain characters.

Maybe that's because you have to 'pierce' your ear to wear earings.

Heheh yeah that's true. Would be funny to see him with earrings. But yeah it's more for gameplay then anything else, there's loads more equipment that don't fit certain characters.
Yeah, that's true.
Guess how funny Robo wears some human cloths.
