Chrono Cross, Square Enix’s classic role playing game originally released for the PlayStation in 1999, is rumored to be getting either remastered or remade.
Reports have been circulating online regarding a possible remake or remaster of a classic RPG game from the original PlayStation era, with industry insiders claiming that the sequel to the acclaimed SNES JRPG Chrono Trigger, is the title up for the remake.

Video Games Chronicle reports that Chrono Cross was one of many speculative unannouced titles listed in an Nvidia database leak in September this year.
According to VGC, PlayStation was also set to announce a remake of a “big game” this Christmas, with a musician who said they were involved with its soundtrack.
Folk singer Éabha McMahon, who performs as Ava, told Irish radio station WLR FM that she had recorded an Irish language theme for the game, which had yet to be revealed.
During her radio interview, McMahon claimed she worked on the mystery PlayStation game’s soundtrack with composer Michael McGlynn and his daughter, who sang on the track in question.
The Chrono series’ composer, Yasunori Mitsuda, tweeted a photo of McGlynn and McGlynn’s daughter as they were in the process of recording, adding more speculation to the Chrono Cross Remake rumor mill.
Speaking on the latest XboxEra podcast, co-founder Nick Baker discussed the Nvidia database leak from September which listed unannounced games.
“Chrono Cross Remastered, I think, was already on the Nivida leak list, so the game shouldn’t be a surprise—it was on Nvidia's list. But I was told that that VGC article is about Chrono Cross Remastered,” said Baker.
“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.’
It’s worth noting that neither PlayStation nor Square Enix, the owner of the Chrono Cross license, have confirmed a potential remake, so the reports are purely speculative right now.
