Yasunori Mitsuda is one of the most important Japanese composers of recent decades, he has participated in Inazuma Eleven, Xenoblade, Soul Sacrifice, Valkyria Revolution and of course several Square Enix titles. In its extensive history we find Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis The Chrono Cross, which is precisely a game that is rumored to have a remaster or remake. We have date for possible announcement: February.
In response to comments from players on Twitter where fans were celebrating his birthday, Mitsuda thanked the messages and revealed that announce the first of their upcoming projects next month. It could be any project and there are no guides to Chrono Cross, but the existence of this game has been mentioned by known sources and even the game Another End had a collaboration with Chrono Cross that didn’t seem like a coincidence; it is believed that the presentation in December has been moved to another time, perhaps the State of Play that Sony will have in February.
Thank you so much for your birthday messages. I’m sorry I couldn’t reply to each person. This thank you will be returned to you in the work 😀 At the earliest (if you are lucky), we will announce the first one next month, so please look forward to it! !! — Yasunori Mitsuda YasunoriMitsuda (@YasunoriMitsuda) January 21, 2022
The most likely theory is that Mitsuda has been working on an improved version of the soundtrack for Chrono Cross, a 1999 RPG for the PlayStation. Last year singer Abha McMahon told a radio show that she had recorded an Irish theme song for a video game that was likely to be announced in December, the remake of a well-known PlayStation game. McMahon worked on this track with composer Michael McGlynn and his daughter, regular Mitsuda collaborators; in fact, two weeks before this show, Mitsuda had posted a photo of McGlynn and her daughter performing music remotely.
More sources assure that it is real
Last October the insider Nick Baker said that Chrono Cross Remastered It would reach several platforms and shortly after the Gematsu medium said, through its own sources, that it had heard of this remastering. It also appeared in the Nvidia database, which over time has been verified as real.
Chrono Cross It is set in the same world as Chrono Trigger, released in 1995 for the Super Nintendo. It features Masato Kato, designer and director, who had members who had worked on Chrono Trigger, such as art director Yasuyuki Honne and composer Yasunori Mitsuda. It narrates the adventure of young Serge who travels to different parallel worlds and meets a multitude of companions who are playable. It achieved numerous awards and is considered one of the company’s best JRPGs.. It was not released in Europe.
