I can understand the Katakana, which of course helps so little for an actual translation.

I'd wonder, considering it says just Square on the bottom-right corner. Shouldn't it be Square-Enix?

I remember this image. But I'm fairly certain it's fake. I remember some site proving what games those images came from. But this around 2000 or 2001 so it's very loose. Don't entirely trust me.

According to tineye, an very similar image existed on http://trance14.hp.infoseek.co.jp/neta.htm. It's gone now, but I can view it via the Wayback Machine. I'm not sure what the page is about, but I think it might be about hoaxes, or at least expected games that didn't materialize.

Oh man, RPGamer's Chrono Break 2003 April Fools Day hoax totally needs to be recognized on this occasion. That Japanese image appears under "propaganda" in RPGamer's faux article, but I'm not sure whether it would have originated there or on a Japanese site beforehand.

They totally, totally had me for a few minutes back in 2003 despite the obvious Photoshopping. Ah, to be young and naive again...

I am saddened that gaming journalist didn't bother to investigate what happened with Chrono franchise.Is really that hard to ask Kato what he wanted to do in CB, to ask Tanaka and other SE executives about ''politics involved with the series''.
Just knowing the truth would be big relief for me....

Aw, this makes me sad. Hey maybe since its met its expiration date something out of the blue might happen. Right? right? Like another company which houses most of the creators can pick it up, right? (crosses fingers)

Yeah I live in a dream world.

Let's put it this way. There's always a chance the story has gone through enough revisions that it wouldn't called Chrono Brake/Break anymore anyway.

If that were the case, I'd prefer just to hear the original idea.

Anyone know what the deal is with the guy squatting on the domain name of chronobreak.com? It's just a redirect to some terrible blog about "sudermania."

Probably a garden-variety domain squatter (the fact that he has it redirected to somewhere utterly irrelevant makes it unlikely that he's anything else, in fact).
