Why Chrono Cross Deserves a Remake More Than Chrono Trigger


Look, all of that information is obviously pretty far from confirmation. There’s no definitive proof that Square Enix is working on a Chrono Cross remake or remaster, and there’s no confirmation regarding which platforms that eventual project may be released on.

However, what I find to be most interesting about these rumors at the moment is the fact that quite a few people are frustrated by the very idea that Chrono Cross would get a remake or remaster over Chrono Trigger.

In a way, I understand the “outrage.” Chrono Trigger is one of the greatest RPGs ever made (I recently called it the best RPG ever made). Not only is it a true classic in every sense of the word, but some of its disappointing recent ports have left many fans swearing that the best way to play the game is to hunt down one of the original SNES copies (which can often be quite expensive).

Chrono Cross, on the other hand, has always been a divisive game. Ever since its release, fans have knocked it for being weird, complicated, and, most importantly of all, nowhere near Chrono Trigger in terms of its gameplay, story, or characters. There are quite a few gamers who still feel burned by Chrono Cross for the simple reason that they went into it expecting a Chrono Trigger sequel and got something else entirely.

Of course, that’s all the more reason why Chrono Cross deserves a remake over Chrono Trigger.

Chrono Trigger is pretty much a perfect game, and while I wish that its recent ports weren’t so terrible, I’d be very hesitant to see a full remake of the title or an updated version of it that changes pretty much everything. Everything about that game has just aged so remarkably well. If you’re the kind of person who simply refuses to play Chrono Trigger because of its graphics or lack of voice acting, that’s very much a “you” problem rather than something that Square Enix needs to address.
