Square Enix is reportedly reviving its classic RPG game Chrono Cross for modern platforms. A remaster of the 1999 PlayStation game was previously spotted in a massive NVIDIA leak, and rumours pointed to PlayStation announcing a remake of a ‘big game’ in Christmas. Now, it looks like that ‘big game’ is Chrono Cross.

This information comes from XboxEra’s co-founder Nick Baker, who claims that PlayStation is set to announce ‘Chrono Cross Remastered’ soon. The game won’t be a PlayStation exclusive however, as Baker states that it’s being released for multiple platforms. 

Baker said:

What else I was told - because everyone's working under the assumption that it's a PlayStation exclusive - I've been told that it's not. The only word that was used was 'multiplat'. Now, when I hear JRPG and multiplat, I automatically assume PC, PlayStation, Switch, that's my assumption. That's not what I was told, that's just my assumption. All my source said to me was 'multiplat'. That's what they said, they told me it wasn't a PlayStation exclusive.

Backing this up is a radio interview with an Irish musician named Ava, who claimed that she had worked on a big PlayStation game’s soundtrack with composer Michael McGlynn and his daughter. Right before the radio interview, Chrono Cross’ composer Yasunori Mitsuda tweeted out a picture of McGlynn and his daughter remotely performing music. 

The idea of Square Enix remastering one of its classic RPGs isn’t so far-fetched, especially since Chrono Cross is a sequel to a legendary and widely beloved JRPG - Chrono Trigger. The publisher has just recently remastered other RPGs like SaGa Frontier and Legend of Mana, so they’re already on quite the roll.
