Thanks to Mako of Xenogears-Fansite's help (http://xenogears-fansite.com/forum/topic/750-looking-for-important-footage/page__gopid__1169), a page full of Xenogears demo videos was found at RPGamer (http://www.rpgamer.com/games/xeno/xg/xgmov.html).

Here is the video in question (http://movies.rpgamer.com/other/psx/xg/xenogear3.mov). The line is shown when the red transformer-like face appears, about 1/3rd of the way through.

Nice find! Argh, the resolution's so tiny...is it just me, or is the quote in the video not quite what ZeaLitY posted? Is it still close enough to the Chrono Cross script to carry the same meaning?


Hard to tell though. I "sharpened" the image as best I could.  :oops:

Thanks for sharpening, Mako said she'll try to get the videos as high-quality and enlarged as possible when she posts them on her own site.

The Chrono Cross line:

    さあ、愛に血を流させてやろう!地獄の海のように、紅く深く!

The Xenogears line:

    さあ、愛に血を流させてやろう 地獄の海のように、紅く、深く!

All that's changed is some punctuation.

Ive been searching many japanese sites for the demo video.

This japanese site: http://blog.goo.ne.jp/crea326/e/a5bdf3dbac581196e086fbebddb7e805  mentions the relationship between Chrono Trigger and Xenogears and shows the line that is in Chrono Cross with the red transformer face.

A Rough rough google chrome translation states:


Production history, "Chrono Trigger 2" and "Xenogears" originally, has been launched from the planning of "Xenogears" and "Chrono Trigger 2", and re-organize the team after "Xenogears" production, again "Chrono Trigger is a production team of "Chrono Cross" that was established in order to make a sequel of ". Therefore in this work there are many similarities with "Xenogears", such as the combat system also has a form in which to develop those "Xenogears". In addition, it had been used in the demo movie of "Xenogears", Come on, I'll let shed blood to love! As in the hell of the sea, crimson ...... deeply ......! Words also, is not a "Xenogears" story, is used in "Chrono Cross" story that.

It appears to mention the demo. Or wait maybe its talking about the video that shows the same line as chrono cross. Bah I wish I spoke Japanese. Actually on second thought it looks a lot like what Vestal translated.

I did find a video for xenogears that called it Final Fantasy, but im pretty sure thats not what we are looking for:

http://matome.naver.jp/odai/2136514987622896601

crappy google translation mentions Project Noah and Chrono Trigger 2:

Slogan is "Seiken why the legend does not appear, different possibilities and Final Fantasy, and Xenogears." What was one of the draft of the original "FF7", it is responsible for the development as adopted new planning team, which has been launched for the "Chrono Trigger 2" and "Project Noah", originally of "Chrono Trigger" epic RPG Tanaka, who was in charge of a is Seiken legendary series originator is per producer, FF series and developers to try to Series lined up in the holy sword legend series and Saga series was produced by enthusiastic of.

(Interview with Tetsuya Takahashi)

BINGO.

--Why did you choose space as the setting? Were you not interested in a fantasy world?

Xenogears" started out as a sequel to "Chrono Trigger". However, as we had many meetings with the publishers, we found that it was practically difficult. ...... I asked Mr. Sakaguchi to go to the trouble of making it an original title. However, since development had already started, there were parts where I couldn't go back to the fantasy world, and I was concerned about the motivation of the staff. Xenogears" was the result of a certain amount of compromise.

There is another interview that may confirm, but we don't have it: https://squareference.blogspot.com/1998/11/vol126.html

Fascinating. And I guess that's why the Lucca cameo exists, most likely.

Hmm, space setting being a result of originally being a Chrono Trigger sequel? Interesting. The hunt of Lavos-like lifeforms, its origin planet, perhaps...?
