Back in September, a list of potentially upcoming games leaked via an Nvidia data breach. The leak revealed hundreds of game titles listed on an Nvidia database; the company later confirmed the list was real, but the titles were “speculative.” One name in particular, Chrono Cross Remaster, undoubtedly captured the attention of Square Enix fans around the globe.
More and more information has surfaced that indicates that Chrono Cross Remaster is happening — and what’s more, it might not be a PlayStation exclusive.
In the latest episode of the XboxEra podcast, host Nick Baker discussed the possibility that the Chrono Cross remaster is coming to multiple platforms, not just the PlayStation. If this is true, PlayStation, PC, and Switch players can all experience this rumored title.
What we know about Chrono Cross Remaster so far
Details on the rumored remaster have been scant, to say the least. After the Nvidia leak (which, again, isn’t definitive proof of the remaster’s existence), we heard from singer Éabha McMahon that she recorded a song for an upcoming giant PlayStation remake that the company would reveal around Christmas 2021. This is likely referring to a remastered version of Chrono Cross, though this remains unconfirmed.
Further adding fuel to the Chrono Cross Remaster fire is Baker’s claims of a multiplatform release. As he said in the XboxEra podcast:
Everyone’s working under the assumption that it [Chrono Cross Remaster] is 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 PlayStation exclusive.Nick Baker, XboxEra
It’s important to remember that this claim hasn’t been verified by anyone at Square Enix yet. However, if the Christmas announcement is true, we won’t have to wait long to find out about Chrono Cross Remaster.
